Based in Dublin, Absys Records has been championing the deep, futuristic sounds of atmospheric drum & bass since its birth in 2008. Initially founded to showcase the sounds of a selection of lesser-known producers, Absys quickly built a reputation synonymous with quality through its series of free digital releases. The last three years have seen releases by such pioneering and diverse producers as Rainforest, Satl, Electrosoul System, Invadhertz, Anile, Kontext, Nuage, Hatti Vatti, Hidden Element, Joe Syntax, Mortem, Loxy & Resound, Naibu, ASC, Es.tereo, Fre4knc, Gremlinz, Arp Xp, Mr Sizef, Radicall, Future Engineers, Lm1, Adi Sharma amongst many more, and have cemented Absys’ reputation amongst the upper echelons of experimental drum & bass and electronic music.
Alongside a strong back catalogue of artistry by emergent graphic designers, Absys has refused to compromise on its visual and aural integrity, with limited edition prints being made available of the best designs. The painstaking care taken over the curation of Absys releases has served to solidify their two-prong aesthetic and endeared them to many of the scene’s most discerning listeners. Watch out for future releases and many more, as Absys continues to broaden the horizons of 170bpm and 140bpm music and its peripheral sounds.
