Instra:mental to Release Debut Album on Nonplus+
The duo of Al Bleek and Kid Drama, better known as Instra:mental, will be unleashing its debut album on its own Nonplus+ imprint, which has also been home to releases from Actress, dBridge, and ASC since its founding in 2009. The album is hardly Instra:mental's first release. The Londoners originally formed as a drum & bass duo back in 2000, then went on a six-year hiatus before returning to the collaboration. Recently the group has found itself moving beyond the drum & bass tag, venturing into a wider range of tempos and styles with newer material, such as its remix for Jimmy Edgar's "Hot, Raw, Sex." (Which you can listen to here.) In the duo's own words: "You can expect a wide range of styles, from 110bpm up to 135bpm, on the album, we just went with what we were feeling at the time, that's all we've ever done in the studio. So we hope you all like the results!" So do we. Instra:mental's first full-length, to be titled Resolution 653, will be released on April 4.
