Relay & Front drop their new single on the Rub A Duck imprint entitled “Pictures of You”.
The producer duo from Finland and Estonia, together since 2011, is at it again. It was Front who successfully introduced Relay to the world of drum ‘n’ bass and the two have been delivering tightly produced singles ever since. Relay & Front’s musical output, with similarities to the sound of acts like Camo & Crooked, Makoto and Netsky, usually is defined as liquid drum ‘n’ bass. Their previous single, “Farewell Letter”, appeared on the acclaimed Snow Dance 001 compilation and was later on released as a single, including the second track “Farseer”. Relay & Front have recently been assigned to produce remixes for Andain and Sickflip; in the meantime harvesting a lot of highly positive online response from the well established drum ‘n’ bass names.
With their new single “Pictures of You”, the boys manage to bring on a true high energy, atmospheric floor filler. Not shy to work with live guitar and piano in their arrangements, the single breathes an open but still slightly mysterious atmosphere and gives way to some smashing drum programming. And what might already be described as a trademark feature of the Relay & Front sound, “Pictures of You” contains an elaborate break that showcases another superb composition of synths, mixed with subtle guitar riffs; the perfect moment for every DJ to create a towering climax in their live performance. “Pictures of You” is one of those killer liquid drum ‘n’ bass cuts you simply can’t work without.
