More Time Records was easily one of 2017’s most exciting new labels, treating us to music from the likes of Zed Bias, Mina, Bryte, Cardinal Sound and label co-founders Ahadadream and SNØW. Keeping their hot streak firmly in the red, the next release on More Time is a debut for London-based Trinidadian producer/vocalist Blasé Vanguard. His exciting AA-side has already been receiving heavy support from Toddla T, Benji B and Swing Ting, so you just know it’s gonna be good.
We’re premiering ‘Dahlin’’ – a heady concoction of soca and UK funky but married with the heads-down, rain-stricken introspection of early dubstep. Accordingly, the latter part of the track features Vanguard’s own vocals hanging mournfully in the background. The whole thing bubbles with tension but never quite spills over, showcasing a strange hybrid sound which is low-key but undeniably effective. Keep an eye out for Blasé Vanguard this year.
STRESS / Dahlin’ is out 24th January on More Time Records, pre-order it here.
