I can’t believe it’s been over a year since we last posted a review on the blog. It’s fair to say that it’s been quite an unusual year and, like a lot of people, I’ve been affected by the impact that the pandemic has had on society in so many different ways.
I can only thank God that I haven’t been personally affected through ill health or financial hardship but it’s been a very strange and busy year with work situations, school and childcare closures and a significant increase in online/tech requirements for our local church.
Having said that, I don’t want to be seen to be making excuses. I started this blog as I felt that, in God, it was the right thing to do and I’ve dropped the ball on it (again)!
So, we’re back…. again!
As we’ve probably said before, you can’t really go wrong with a track with the letters DJSS listed as one of the producers. If you know Drum & Bass, then you know DJSS and you know the inevitable quality to expect.
As with other releases from the Soul Savaz project, this track is a builder. Starting with etherial vocals, simple hi-hats and atmospheric chord sweeps, the track leads you into a fuller break with the heavy, rumbling bassline gradually making it’s significant presence felt as the vocals repeat the main “In Your Name” hook.
The track then drops into rolling beats and industrial synths and that big bassline continuing to rumble on, underpinning all the other elements of the track.
I really think that DJSS has found an amazing balance between overtly Gospel lyrics and instrumentals that sit comfortably alongside any of the tracks secular contemporaries.
