    Three Shards / Embers
    Overlook / Blocks & Escher

    In a year that has seen the label grow from infancy to an outlet receiving acclaim far beyond its years; Narratives has found its way into the record boxes of the scenes elite including Rockwell, Friction, Teebee, Loxy & Marcus Intalex to name a few and whilst maintaining the 170 bpm tempo, has caught the attention of other genres by ways of DJ’s Laurent Garnier, Kuedo, and Rob Da Bank.
    The previous single closed 2012 on a high and saw the label earning Single of the Year awards (Everyday Junglist), a place in BBC Radio 1’s Drum and Bass 2012 round up, and the blessing of pioneer Goldie who described Narratives Music as This is art.
    Narratives Music marks its first year as a label with release number four and with it, the first piece of original music to grace the label from an artist other than label owners Blocks and Escher.
    The young talent Overlook steps up to deliver a track capturing the very ethos of the label and continues from where Narratives 003 left off. Cinematic soundscapes give way to a rhythm work out that nods to the works of Photek and Source Direct but drags and kicks those sounds into the future. Relentless and unnerving this one never stays still, progressing and developing for what seems a super short 7 minutes.
    Blocks and Escher retake the reigns for the flip side and remind us that this label will never be pigeon holed, it wants to surprise. ‘Embers’ unleashes again the emotive keys and melancholic synths revealed previously in this pairs music but carries a weight and character that takes it far beyond shoe gazing ambient. It feels like a track pulling against the chains of DnB and as a contrast to the other side of the single, leaves the listener in wonder of where the label is heading next.
