Back with another heavyweight single, Symmetry delivers a dirty slice of tech vibes for the summer.
Duck For Cover launches you in with precise rolling beats and filmic tense atmosphere. A breakdown of pulsating elastic synth mixed with soulful vocal licks drops you into a stomping drum and bass workout. Featuring Break’s trademark bongo rhythms and chugging bass, as the words of warning suggest, one should Duck for Cover.
Debuting his first solo track on Symmetry, Fields comes with a new twist on his eclectic sound. Featuring a complex puzzle of interlocking drum machine hits and grizzly bass, this intricate but rolling groover delivers a killer combo of funk and tech.

Mix and Short Q & A via this link
In Hour 1 our guest is Pinch, with a vinyl selection spanning the years.
“I wanted to take the opportunity to do something different for this Solid Steel mix and I decided to approach the mix as if I was ‘back from a good night out’ and winding down with some late night weird selections from my vinyl collection. The records were all pulled from my shelves on spur of the moment decisions – trying to dig out as many rare or vinyl-only riddims as I could along the journey. The result is a little self-indulgent and perhaps a bit random in places – but it’s something I’d enjoy listening to myself – so at least it’s honest..”
