By A Thread ft Georgina Upton by Mediks – Official Music Video
Drum & Bass is still healthy and strong at the minute and hardly hanging “By A Thread” as some of the smaller genres are. It is the one dance music genre which has stood the tests of time. One particular label which is managing to keep it alive and well is Audioporn Records with their continuous releases from various credible artists, and Mediks with the Fast Lane EP shows us all exactly why we all love DnB.
This particular track – ‘By A Thread’ – which I’ve singled out from the others on the 5 track release is a rare delight. The typical bouncy groove is supported by an anthemic vibe, catchy riffs and an aura of wondrous, fragile warmth. The bass is strong but not in-your-face. The drums bring us the tempo of course but the main riff is one of the simplest of hooks ever and drags you right into the track with immediate effect. Mediks has brought in the vocal talent of songstress Georgina Upton who delivers a delicate, angelic vocal to the tune. An absolutely perfect combination in my mind. This has radio airplay written all over it.
This will certainly be a big, big tune and I really hope it does well. It has the big room feel, an infectious hook and a delectable vocal. It is also a beautiful music video. Check out the cameos if you can and see if you can spot the other Audioporn producers which includes Shimon, Xilent, James Marvel as well as Rough Tempo Radio boss, Scoundrel.
Check out the rest of the EP. Some of it is not quite as lovely but instead, fierce, vibrant and full of fantastic, filthy bass tones. It is pretty awesome.
