Listing Detail Tabs

The first release project for Samurai Music, Way of The Samurai presents a panoramic vision of global drum and bass music circa 2009.

The brainchild of Internationally respected, New Zealand-based drum and bass pioneer Geoff Wright (DJ Presha), Way of The Samurai is an artfully curated collection of progressive drum and bass from New Zealand and abroad.

The album is a triumph of musical depth and intensity over the formulaic sounds sometimes present in commercial drum and bass. When looked at holistically Way of The Samurai represents the creative vision of Samurai Music, as designed by DJ Presha.

Featuring exclusive material from New Zealand drum and bass producer's State of Mind, The Upbeats, Dose, Menace, Trei, Luca and Mosus with equally unique material from Europeans Klute, Hobzee, Zyon Bass, Zero T, Soul Intent, Stress Level, TC1 & Julen, Way of The Samurai traverses the full gamut of drum and bass flavours over the course of its twelve track running order.

Be it the atmospheric and upfront sounds of Divinity by Klute, the haunting and urgent cries of SFX by The Upbeats, or the almost cosmic tones of Carbon Black by Zero T & Mosus, the common threads of quality and diversity through this album become quickly apparent, even after the most cursory listen.
