It's a new era for drum'n'bass heads, as UK stalwart Rockwell is set to launch his own label. OBSOLETE MEDIUM, named after his 2015 debut album, greets the world via a four-track EP called CONTENT, and it's more than just a first look.

"I have poured my heart and soul into this release on both a sonic and visual level," Rockwell tells Billboard Dance. "Everything you see from the music and artwork, to all the content and promotional materials was made by me. This process of regaining autonomy over my output has creatively reinvigorated my outlook regarding who I am and what I have to offer through my music. It was important to me to roll up my sleeves and completely immerse myself in the production of this record. DIY."

CONTENT is composed of four new originals, one of which features Rockwell's buddy Lakeway. The title track acts as lead single, a grimy rumbler that positively melts in your ears. A cinematic midsection and a right womp-tacular rhythm elevate the tune and the genre to dope frontiers. 

The CONTENT EP drops Friday. Be sure to watch for more from Rockwell and OBSOLETE MEDIUM in 2019, and listen to "CONTENT" a day early below, exclusively on Billboard Dance.
