The already-mighty Hessle Audio, launched in 2007, have just released their first album. Titled “116 & rising“, it’s both a full album of new tracks and a label compilation of earlier releases. As those releases indicated, the boys have a knack for pushing their own bass-filled envelope, and in doing so are providing some of the freshest sounds around. Reminds this ex-drum ‘n bass DJ of the sense of adventure surrounding labels like Metalheadz and Reinforced around 15 years ago… awesome stuff. Four sampler tracks listed above, the full release has 24!
