Subb-an continues to develop his One Records platform, adapting and moulding alongside stylistic shifts in modern minimal whilst also maintaining a high degree of quality control. Central to this successful adaptation has been the carefully selected roster of artists he works with; some old friends, some new – but always artists whose work reflect the contents of his own record bag: neatly reduced tunes aimed squarely at the dance floor.
ONE049 is another in a series of VA releases on the label featuring Yamen & Eda, Leeds based Mariiin, Ciel, NorthSouth owner Sam Bangura, Duowe & Picasso, and Subb-an himself. Mariiin contribution is a kinetic tool evincing her skills as a seasoned and well respected DJ. Tumbling breaks are pinned by a 4/4 kick while interweaving sweeps and filters recall the atmosphere of some of the Swag classics.
