An explorative sonic landscape with the beautifully eclectic sounds of drum and bass
at its core, Sustance’s debut album is every bit as thought-out, polished, and
innovative as we’ve come to expect from one of drum and bass’ brightest prospects.
Having grown up listening to seminal Shogun albums like Spectrasoul's 'Delay No
More' and Icicle's 'Under The Ice', ‘Perceived Connections’ acts as a full circle
moment for the producer, who now finds himself following in the footsteps of the
artists who profoundly influenced his approach to creating music.

Written between London and Berlin across a twelve-month period, 'Perceived
Connections' encapsulates both of the alluring sides of Sustance's sound. In the
same fashion that the album's writing process pivoted between two capital cities,
Sustance's debut album presents both deep and expressive tracks such as 'I Want
You' and 'Sweet Relief', as well as showcasing heavy, sound system-destroying
tunes like 'Undercurrent' and 'Ten Ton’.

“The album title comes from the Zen idea that everyone perceives the world through
their own perspective. Two people can listen to a record side by side and have totally
different experiences. I really liked that idea as music is inherently so subjective.
Sustance Accompanying Sustance on this LP voyage is a plethora of D&B’s hottest talent, with Pola & Bryson, Visages, Flowdan, Strategy, Duskee, T-Man, Catching Cairo & Zara Kershaw all sprinkling their own flavours across the album.
