“Does the giraffe know what he’s for? Or care? Or even think about his place in things?


The Diffrent giraffe knows what’s what. And what he knows is that the Diffrent label is celebrating its 20th release with an album of new tunes. It’s out on 9 December (including on vinyl).

Diffrent specialise in high quality abstract drum and bass. Dexta & Mauoq’s Slugger (Tension Dub) has that spartan menace of disorientating sounds and sub-bass. For Slow, Kolectiv take things in a more ambient direction, with a little guitar. M-Zine & Scepticz x Mtwn make Choices into something almost deconstructed in its abstractness. All the track are great of themselves. But heard together, they’re almost too dry, too devoid of warmth. Like a fine wine, to be consumed in small doses.
