01. Dorian & Skore – Powertool [4:33]
02. Dorian & Skore – Be Afraid [5:02]
Bring on the heavy equipment! Dorian is teaming up with fellow Viennese Skore for another twisted collab on Mainframe Recordings.
Dorian is steadily on his way to the top, recently making waves with his highly acclaimed Ritual EP, which got support throughout the whole scene from Friction to TC.
Skore has been stirring up the Jump Up scene for quite a while now with releases on Co-Lab, Hangar and Switch!, currently being Vienna’s top dog when it comes to wonky beats and dirty screeching wobble basses. On this release, the slick and the filthy blend together in perfect synergy.
The lead track definitely does its name justice, coming in as a true ‘Powertool’ – straight and on point, no frills. Simply take some pure & uncut heavyweight Drum & Bass reduced to its essential ingredients, spiced up with a generous pinch of Funk, boil under high pressure and serve alongside a suggestively mantric vocal loop. This will get the blood and dancefloor pumping.
‘Be Afraid’ is another upfront smasher, rather leaning towards the dark and techy end of the genre’s stylistic spectrum. Expect some crispy machine funk here, driven by a whiplash snare and ground-shaking bass sweeps – handle with care.
