Since his first Submorphics release on The North Quarter, the Detroit native has tenaciously developed his unique brand of lo-fi, deep drum & bass. With his new six-track EP ‘Verona Highway’, the Den Haag-based producer has created what he calls “a late night Detroit to Chicago road trip aesthetic”. Rooted in the underground, this project is an assemblage of techno, footwork and soulful house influences fused with his own signature earworm melodies, deep minor chords and the modern North Quarter drum & bass sound. The result is an EP that feels emotive and nostalgic while maintaining a modern atmosphere.
‘Verona Highway’ marks the return of Submorphics to The North Quarter, just over a year after his critically acclaimed Newport Magnetic EP. Reminiscent of night time drives and peaceful after hours, the EP is a collection of warm, dreamy and sentimental music and is the ultimate soundtrack for serene summer nights.

Where to start! It's a soulful breath of fresh air in the d&b scene and the background of both the inception of the album itself and its namesake area of North London are fascinating. It's a vibrant, varied and cohesive listen that makes fine use of guest vocalists alongside the production team on fire!
Plenty of stand out tracks on here and it was an instant wishlist from the first play, so glad to have finally got my hands on it! Jason Piper

Great beats with vocals that keep you hooked into each track, this album is frontloaded with a lo-fi feel that lets me alternately drown in it or use it as a background while I work, and then track 4's driving beat makes sure to bring you back to yourself again. An absolute treat. loktaigreywolf
