Mix Of The Week: Kumarachi

best drum and bass mix 2020

Straight out the streets of Nottingham, the new-school sound of Kumarachi is one that fans of that old-school jungle vibe have been digging on for a minute now.

With heavyweight releases on imprints like DJ Hybrid’s Audio Addict and Deep in the Jungle, the surfacing of the underground sound of Kumarachi on none other than Kasra’s forward-thinking Critical imprint at the end of 2017, which was a welcome surprise. Tasked with helming the ever-impressive Binary series on Critical, Kumarachi merged the very best elements of the old-school with a new-school sensibility. Summed up by the deep and deadly vibes of “Someone”, to the insistent breakbeat-driven intros and shuffling junglistic grooves of “Dusk” and “NG”.

2018 began with “Still Here” being included on Drum & Bass Arena’s Anthems compilation, and the releases have continued since. The most recent releases were his “Saturn’s Return EP” on Deep In The Jungle which showcases a deeper, rawer jungle sound, while his “Lisbon” single on Skank and Bass focused on the more minimal side of Kumarachi’s sonic footprint.

To showcase his favourite drum & bass sounds, Kumarachi takes over this week’s Mix Of The Week! Don’t forget to share with someone who enjoys bass music.
