Cyantific is a couple of Londoners named Jonathan Stanley and Matthew Whitehead. Together, they offer a new approach to the electro and disco side of drum ‘n’ bass. The speed of their breakbeats is the real treat: uptempo spark meets rolling sub-bass to create the perfect summer sound. Bass stabs and blasting horns mash with infectious synthesized melodies and clever samples to give Cyantific’s style a twist of funk and soul. The duo’s much-heralded debut LP, “Ghetto Blaster,” was released on the respected Hospital Recordings label this spring. Cyantific’s DJ skills are formidable as well, sparking countless rumors of alien life and use of magic. (John Alex Colón)
