As usual there’s a nice variation of genres on this week shouts, although for the Dubstep listeners there’s a healthy dose of face meltage in store.
Kicking off with a teaser from the Section 8 Recordings new release the ‘ Split Mind EP’, Split Mind by iBenji is an engineered bass synth assault filled to the brim with massive relentless stabs – canned energy this one. It’s definitely worth getting an ear full of the rest of this dance floor E.P. as pieces from Oceania, Saint Rider and Tim Ismag all bring a rib busting offering to the plate.
Bringing up the pace and switching the mood is Lucas with the pacy house/breaks blend Prophecy. This piece features some classic sounds and a real nice sub-bass, keeping the track locked down. There’s something about this piece that means it keeps it aggression aswell as maintains a deep progressive feel.
Time to lighten the soundscape. Shifting from Zyblot rolls in with bells and a thick warm layer before unleashing a rushing Drum and Bass line and some reverse keys all underpinned by deeply anchored bassline. Zyblot is one of those liquid Drum and Bass producers to keep an eye on.
Now time for another gift from the boys and girls at Unjustified records. Slake from Devnik is essentially a Dubstep stomper of the face melting variety. However, as with most Unjustified records tracks it focuses on variation within the piece, which makes for a nice mid-section. Another feature of an Unjustified Record (not taking themselves too seriously) is brought out in other ways. Toilet humour anyone?
