Catch the chill from top drum & bass artist Icicle while you can. He’s got a new single, a forthcoming album, and is in Los Angeles tonight, ready to cool the city down.
His mini tour includes stops tonight at L.A.’s longest running drum & bass weekly, Respect, New York’s Webster Hall on Friday, and Denver’s Vinyl Basement on Saturday. Then he’s off to Europe and Croatia before a more extensive tour is announced after the album release.
The album drops around Halloween, yet junglists are getting their fix of the single (featuring MC Metropolis of Foreign Beggers) entitled “The Edge,” which was recently played on BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Drum & Bass Soundclash. The two-track single features also features a collaboration with UK MC Skittles. Icicle, born Jeroen Snik, met up with Bassrush while visiting L.A. and described the new album, due out on Shogun Audio, this way:
“The album is made up of [mostly] drum & bass, with dubstep and some experimental electronica mixed in. It features an overall dark and progressive sound palette , [but] a few lighter moments, too. There are collabs on there with Mefjus, Proxima and vocalists like SPMC and Sarah Hezen, who is an amazing female vocalist we came across.”
Tickets for tonight’s L.A. show can be purchased here.
