Shogun sister label SGN smash their way into 2015 with an EP from Australian drum and bass producer Safire. The Melbourne resident has been making waves throughout the scene over the last couple of years with releases on independents Dispatch Records, Invisible Recordings, Mindtech and now SGN.

The A-side, Deep Architect, featuring Safire’s partner in crime Morph, is an up-front neuro groove with dark and techy interludes. Safire deconstructs this highly technical track:

“The concept behind Deep Architect represents us overloading the computer beyond its capabilities. Logic brings up an overload message reading \’Deep Architecture\’. Quite a lot of work went into the tune with a lot of rendering of tracks; we counted it to be around 300 tracks bounced down into 100 upon completion.” – Safire

The double AA side, Shinobi is a rolling drum and bass track peppered with instrumentals inspired by Safire’s mini European tour in 2014. It was during shows at Outlook in Croatia, Amsterdam and London that Safire collected a series of ‘cultural materials’ that resulted in Shinobi; both a nod to SGNs Ninja roots, to the gamer crew and those who like it grimey on the dancefloor.
