01. Shimon & Trimer – Scaredy Cat [4:12]
02. Shimon & Trimer – Gollum [4:01]
Beside Shimon’s undeniable experience and command over music, Trimer brings the infamous energy he acquired DJing into the studio. A-side ‘Scaredy Cat’ is your first taste, delivering a revving bassline which grinds between each stab of sonic. Both Trimer and Shimon go for the audio jugular, never toning down their aggressive yet intricate layers of production whilst dicing the record with jungle-esque breaks. Each wave grows on the last, before the track cascades into the type of sounds which originally made drum & bass so recognized. Shimon stays true to his roots, whilst Trimer detonates his fresh signature, executing a track the way only Audioporn artists know how.
On the flipside you’re presented with ‘Gollum’, once again penetrating speakers with all-out anarchy. Subterranean bass filters through the mix, taking you deeper with every drum roll and padded kick. Crackling distortion also raises its head, underpinning the composition and allowing you to become submerged within the tracks heavy coatings. Bit by bit, ‘Gollum’ builds and then shakes your subs aggressively with its firing beats, creating images of the moodiest section of any club night. The unification of Trimer and Shimon’s skill sets add another rung within Audioporn’s already decorated discography. The label is now in its tenth year, a feat for even the most longstanding record labels and with releases of this calibre they’re here to stay for another decade. Although lead by an artist with Shimon’s history and reputation, it’s to be expected.
