Comprising of a variety of highly regarded, forward-thinking artists, the first track entitled ‘Insect’ is a bass driven rendition of hard hitting snares, crunchy reeces and stinging stabs, infused with a jungle formula of (anything but) gentle hums, buzzes and murmurs. Neurofunk and techstep producer NU4M then engages our eardrums with his beast of a trackknown as ‘Holotropic Sense’. What appears to begin as a rather tame and sensual roller, with it’s melodic pads and soft strings, soon progress into a forever falling drop of clean and crispy drum work, dark and elongated synths, as well as a steady, rhythmic bassline.
We are then enveloped by the compelling work of Victim with his piece ‘Whispers In The Wind’. A heavy, yet dynamic growler with punchy kicks and solid percussion - supported with trembling synths, mellifluous arps and an exceedingly robotic aesthetic and feeling throughout. Following on from the success of the last EP, Instinkt hits back again, this time bringing in a collaborative creation with Slovakian trio Humanon. “Mindrange” takes you on a deep and ear pleasing journey of snappy breaks, sharp snares, rumbling bass and penetrative sound design.
Last but no means least we have Berrylium Audio’s head frontier Anatomix with ‘Strange City’. An immersive mixture of harsh, grumbling one shots soothed with a bellowing sub and hard, stomping drum patterns. A track which provides consistent energy and continuity from the beginning to the very end.
