Taelimb has to be one of the finest technicians in the Drum and Bass scene we have heard in recent years. Not one to shy away from flexing his technical abilities both as a DJ and in an air-tight produced EP’s that pay homage to the idea of less being more. Clean percussion and contrasting textures of bass and atmospherics are rapidly becoming his trademark sound. Not afraid to mix it up with alternative contrasting styles his sets flow and deliver a collection of tracks, showcasing the versatility of the 170 framework.
Taelimb has been around the block and his acclaimed releases show his eclectic musical influences and style. Releases such as, Bloodclart Jungle Techno, Reflexions 2, Inmates Vol 1 and the recent Snap Back EP have all been met with critical acclaim. His recent EP ‘Snap Back’ was featured by Drum and Bass Arena and was featured on their YouTube channel.
His ability in production to make stripped back, fizzy steppers with enticing progression through a sparing use of sounds make the most of the space available. The groove he manages to build along with gnarly and tense textures, as the breakdowns make you complacent before the grit kicks in and rolls out with more pace is a work of someone who really understands musical texture. He’s making you emotionally invested in the tracks and succeeds every time.
And, it doesn’t stop there. Taelimb’s Djing skills and ability to generate a crowd reaction are equally impressive. His style is moody, emotional, minimal and manic all at once. Managing to make you feel like a rag doll being thrown around room made of trampolines. Listen, but dance. He will build up momentum, overlapping tracks by using only the tightest and most delicate drum work with occasional licks of soulful vocals and a deceiving but anticipated second drop that sucks you in before spitting you out. We said dance!
A technical producer and gifted DJ that brings memorable atmospherics with stomping beats to any party. Taelimb will leave you haunted and insatiably wanting more.
