Calibre drops new track with all proceeds going to Ukrainian Red Cross

Calibre has just released a new track 'Backtracking', which is available exclusively on Bandcamp - with 100% of the revenue from Bandcamp sales of this track going directly to the Ukrainian Red Cross.

The track is a remix of the 2012 track of the same name by the late Marcus Intalex, made under Intalex's alias Trevino. Calibre's rework of 'Backtracking' is out now through Craig Richards' label, The Nothing Special.

Intalex was an unquestionable powerhouse in the world of drum 'n' bass as Marcus Intalex, and later as Trevino, he garnered similar recognition for his techno and electro works.

As reported in RA, a statement from The Nothing Special expressed that 'Backtracking' was one of Marcus Intalex's "finest creations".

"Somewhere back there, I asked Calibre, a close friend and contemporary of Marcus, if he would consider reworking it. The result is a wonderful new interpretation of a special tune, which we proudly present in his honour."

This news comes alongside confirmation that fans should expect Calibre's latest LP 'Double Bend' next week. 'Double Bend' will be the drum 'n' bass legend's latest venture into dance music genres outside the bounds of DnB, as music fans can expect to hear influence from house, techno and acid in the new LP.

This will be Calibre's first big project since his self released LP 'Feeling Normal', which was out last year. In 2017, Calibre released his first full-length with The Nothing Special, 'Grow'.

The Nothing Special will release 'Double Bend', a 9-track project, digitally and on vinyl on April 1st, 2022.

Backtracking is out now on The Nothing Special - the track costs £3 on Bandcamp and all of the revenue from the track will be going directly to the Ukrainian Red Cross, who continue to provide humanitarian aid to the citizens of Ukraine throughout the crisis. Listen to it below.
