Finnish duo Out of Fuel’s new EP, Isolation, is a real iceberg of a record – the kind that sinks ships, not bulks out your salad.
All frosty percussion and crystalline sci-fi pads, the EP marks the duo’s return to American label Translation Recordings and it is a bass-heavy, atmospheric affair. Moving in the shadows of drum & bass, skipping hats and window-shaking kicks keep things urgent across the four original tracks on the record, which concludes with the stalking Hypersensitivity remix of 2016 track ‘Ghosts’.
NEW RELEASE – Pythius – Monster Black Hole (Official Video)
Never one to shy away from making a statement when it comes to high octane drum and bass, Pythius delivers a bass-driven weapon of a track with new single Monster Black Hole. Following on from previous single From The Future / Akkoord ft. June Miller, Pythius builds momentum in bone-crunching style as we approach the release of his full-length album due later this year.
Pythius has been hailed as one of Blackout’s most impressive up and comers since making a name for himself with his Abandon EP. He’s famous for his tight, aggressive beats and the reputation he holds alongside the likes of Black Sun Empire, State of Mind and Neonlight amongst other heavyweights.
Monster Black Hole flaunts the type of hard-hitting sound that only Pythius can deliver – a gut-wrenching blend of heavy snares and electronic textures squared to get your adrenaline pumping. With morphing bass overlaps and piercing drum hits, this is one not to be taken lightly.
With a hotly-anticipated LP on the horizon, Pythius uncages a scorcher of a track to further keep fans guessing at what’s to come.
Real Vibes keeps the pedal to the metal with its third free-download release, the irresistibly powerful ‘Rollin’.
The label, founded by veterans of the scene Ly Da Buddah and Mystic Dan, only launched at the tail end of last year but is already on its third neck-snapping free download as it pursues an ambitious release schedule which aims to drop a new free tune each month until December this year.
‘Rollin’ is the latest effort, and just as before is a fat slab of junglist jump-up bossed by landslide basslines and with more ragga-stye vocals tearing through over the top.
Listen below, and pick up the free download from the Real Vibes Soundcloud page.
Twisted sounds from Eastern Europe are the order of the day on none60’s first release of 2018, complete with a Sinistarr remix on the flip.
The Corpus is a Lithuanian collective of producers, and ‘Cult X’ marks their debut on Silent Dust’s pedigree record label. All sparse half-time atmospherics and ribcage-rattling kicks it is a formidable statement of intent from the group.
Sinistarr makes a long overdue return to none60 for his speaker-shredding remix which sends the original clipping down the rabbit hole before pulling it back out with a flourish.
