Just got a new releasse from g-stone last week - Walkner.Mostl "Heaven or
Hell". (from groovedis if I recall properly)
It's very g-stone sounding, could almost be K&D themselves, but if you
like that sound then this is more of it, I am getting into it which makes
me start to dig out the older K&D stuff as well. From the cover it seems
this is another production duo. My fave track so far is Rebel Music feat
Sugar B. - dubby vocal hook carries through with a guitar distortion break
in the back end of the track. Good chill out tunes.
All in all good production with that stoney label sound from K&D
recommended for fans of the "vienna sound".
