Optiv & BTK – Dark City

Today Optiv & BTK travel to the Dark City with their new EP, premiered on BBC Radio 1 by Friction and now with gully roller Reckless making its debut on Thump.

Optiv & BTK are undisputedly one of the hardest working duos in drum & bass. Both have a rich history in the genre and between them they have released music on practically every D&B label worth its salt – from Andy C’s Ram Records to DJ Hype’s Playaz.

Their latest four-track adventure is being released via Black Sun Empire’s Blackout imprint. A label which has quickly risen to prominence thanks to BSE’s die-hard fanbase and impeccable A&R skills. Spanning the harder end of the genre, the Dark City EP nevertheless creates a depth of mood and dynamics often lost when produced by less expert hands. This is dark and moody drum & bass but packed with soul and balanced with funk.
