    label: hospital

    The third album from esteemed drum & bass double act Fred V & Grafix is finally here. ‘Cinematic Party Music’ blazes into new territory, marking a shift towards a new live showcase which forges classic and contemporary sonic styles in an entirely new light. Cutting edge production twinned with guitar driven melodies, rustic liquid elements and Fred’s soothing vocals for a release consistent in quality and versatile in style. ‘Colours Fading’ epitomises the live potential of this album. Psychedelic guitar licks infused with flawless rolling percussion invoke an atmospheric dream state of bliss. Walking the line of indie-electronica style drum & bass, ‘Clap Funk’ is a vintage Fred V & Grafix funky stepper, rich in complex progression with no sacrifice of authenticity. In the same vein, ‘San Francisco’ ethereal magic marks what may well be this album’s ‘Major Happy’. Thickly laden percussive elements and intoxicating guitar melody see this euphoric lifter earn a place straight in our hearts. With a performance pedigree that so many artists aspire too, Fred V & Grafix have cemented themselves as one the most exciting and experimental drum & bass outfits.
