Beginning the EP is ‘Fractals’, a full spectrum of the production standard Impak has at his disposal whilst nodding to his intricate layering and intimidating atmospherics. Stepping down the tempo and manifesting a bassline which treads carefully between each twist of metallic percussion, he merges an intricate underpinning to its throbbing skeleton. Impak shows a flagrant versatility with every stab of bass, proving that despite his penchant for neurofunk, he’s able to draw his expertise into a cross-pollination of music which extends itself into the track’s every corner. ‘Infrasound’ pulls you through the EP’s second sound wave, with a more urgent rhythm and hooks which snare themselves to give each of its elements a rugged edge. It points once again to Impak’s colour wheel of production, with the EP flipping through his skill set at a dizzying speed.
‘No Time’ winds up on shaking hi-hats and distorted vocal snippets, with hollowed out drum peddles becoming more and more prominent throughout the mix. After a crashing drop and flipping note arpeggios, ‘No Time’ delivers a kick whilst lending to Impak’s more subdued production prototype. And finally you’re introduced to title-track ‘The Truth is Out There’ featuring Trivision, a hotly tipped artist who’s spent the last twelve months seeping his influence into a plethora of heavyweight releases. Together with Cause4Concern, they unite everything which makes contemporary drum & bass so key within its murkiest clubs, as well as the biggest festival circuits across its European corners. And that’s why the imprint remains on its forefront.
