about

Beat Machine presents the ninth edition of its essential club-oriented series Swinging Flavors. BMRSF#009 features the DC-based duo Ornette Hawkins, which comprises the live session musician Marc Blackwood and the music engineer Maxwell Houston.

The artist composed the captivating Return to Never, which kicks off fast and fluid; serene piano chords and inescapable drum kicks, set to urge for the entire track. Just a few minutes in and the placid mood gets disrupted by the dense basslines, echoes of the mid 90s UK jungle scene, epitomized by the Metalheadz’ Platinum Breakz Series, to which Ornette Hawkins refer to. Their distinctive touch shows in the abstract jazz sounds, finely woven into the structure, which adds a subtle expressiveness to the track.


On the B side, Return to Never is reworked by the drumfunk master dgoHn. Known as the pioneer of this unique genre, the UK based producer delivers an eccentric remix; as if to close a circle, the track begins with violent and chopped-up basslines, enhanced by juxtaposed breakbeats and samples - distinguishing feature of the artist. Towards the end, bashful acid-jazz notes re-surface among the meandering drum sequences, glossing the track with an irresistible dreamy groove
