Unsocial is the brand-new LP dropping from drum & bass producer Audio, a name which sent shockwaves across the community when it was announced he’d signed to influential imprint RAM Records. But his sixth album ‘[Unsocial]’ goes further than the sounds he’s cultivated over decades and instead sees him dig even deeper into what is at his core as an artist.
After feeling a certain amount of pressure that came through writing big tracks of a certain style, the ongoing pandemic has helped him elevate himself out of the pigeonhole he’d found himself in whilst keeping him planted at his roots.
RAM and Audio are about to drop an album sampler which gives a sharp taste of what’s to come from Audio’s next prestigious album. Let loose a month before ‘[Unsocial]’, it features the incendiary sounds of ‘Spider Tank’ and ‘Kimura’ which demonstrate that Audio isn’t moving away from his roots and instead building on them as concrete foundations.
As Audio himself illustrates: “The pandemic caused chaos around the world with many of us having to change and adapt our way of lives, things seemed bleak for a while but out of those dark times I felt a new freedom and drive in the studio. This sampler is a taste of the album project that came from that freedom.”
