The depth of the forest was unknown to those who lived at its verge. Shadows cast from the dense canopy seemed to reach out towards those who passed close by, wisps of darkness unfurling and twisting around the limbs of the youngest that dared to play at its sinister edge. The oldest stories of its roots passed across the creaking voices of the town pensioners hunched in the safety of others, discretely whispered and shot through with fearful looks. The allure of that dense and ancient place stretched back eternal, and bitter consequence waited for those who breached its dark heart. The crew ignored the nonsense of such crones, pulling the carts of equipment under the cover of dusk until the sounds of the town were but a memory. The speaker stacks were raised against the night, strings of lights hung between the trees and purity of disturbed bass rolled against the surrounding trunks as they disentangled themselves from the mundane fiber of the lives they left behind. Twisting against one another as they let flood serotonin delight, they ignited an orgy of sonic symbiosis as the rave found its wings and took flight. The spores drifted imperceptibly into the clearing from the darkness around, lodging without discomfort in the eyes, ears and noses of the gathered young. And then the screaming started, the undulating mass of the gathering turned inward… devouring itself as limbs were separated from bodies, necks ripped as skin tore loose and the blood flowed freely over the gnashing faces of those left alive at the KILL PARTY…

GYDRA return to EATBRAIN in force, following up their well-received CYBORG EP with the dynamic, darkly driven but funk-laced assault of the KILL PARTY EP. From the old-school drenched piano and ultrafunk of the title track, to the playful sinister intent of PRIMITIVE INSTINCT, the filthy sub explorations of PROBLEM and the predatory sensibilities of IKRA – the 4 tracks within display the dynamic and exploratory character of the production outfit. This is Russian neurofunk at its finest, delivered on the platform that’s tailored exactly to the premiere kinetic nature of its content.

Its hulking form loomed impressively over the landscape with silent menace, intricately laced with the forbidden technology of its inherent design – discrete but powerful audio weaponry blisters in low profile across its chassis. Its journey from the depths of the continent to the crucible of Europe had been arduous, following the densely interwoven fiber stands laid down by the Controller itself, webbed across the hemisphere to gather sonic intel from the core label habitats and to signal the gathering once per cycle at the apogee of solar proximity.

With the arrival of that signal, the EATBRAIN cluster had erupted in a frenzy of activity, initiating the activation sequences planned by their greatest minds. An upload of the entire population into the vast mechanism of their creation, a design with the pure objective of sonic decimation at the LIR battle royale. It stood there against the skyline looking down at that sector, the Controller’s ship setting down in the dust of the ancient, abandoned military base, the arriving vessel unfurling resonators and speaker stacks primed with off-world mechanisms. Without hesitation the vast Eatbrain mecha issued its sequence of final checks, loading the audio assimilation interface destined to annihilate all below and took a stride towards the awaiting masses.

EATBRAIN deliver their second tight package of pure neurofunk energy for the LIR EP, signalling their unwavering intent to deliver an ultimate selection of high-end drum & bass at Europe’s largest drum & bass festival. Featuring blinding audio weaponry from neurofunk pioneer CHRIS.SU, the colourful but mighty arena energy of MOB TACTICS and Eatbrain veterans ZOMBIE CATS, alongside fresh but highly significant creators in the form of MALUX and SYNERGY – this is an EP carved out by a label at the top of its game in preparation to deliver an intense night of sonic mayhem of the kind that the label is known and loved for.

Agressor Bunx – Properties Of Addition LP

Alone they stood upon the roof of the world, two minds interlocked beyond the realm of their origin. Delivered into this alternate reality as separate points of consciousness, the definition of their relative distinction was for a while their only grip upon the structures of the past. Staring across the infinite horizon over the edge of their plateau, the meaning of time itself was lost in the entropy of their incarceration. In that endless expanse, the fringes of their perception eroded – stark concepts reacting and evolving in the wake of a forgotten future, bearing fresh complexity as the branches of their minds intertwined. Boundaries melted upon the shores of the present as the separation of elements lost meaning, the properties of addition relentless and timeless – towering beyond their combined mindstate.

 

Following their striking emergence onto EATBRAIN with ‘The Order’ EP in 2016, AGRESSOR BUNX tore a ragged furrow through the year with their rapid rise to the apex of the drum & bass sphere, with releases on Blackout, Trendkill, Bad Taste and Program. With the duo featuring heavily at Eatbrain live shows, they’ve seared their sound deep into the hearts of the label’s massive crew and quickly become embedded in the core of their aesthetic. 2017 brings the release of the Ukrainian pair’s first LP on Eatbrain in the form of the PROPERTIES OF ADDITION LP, which delivers an array of the kind of cutting-edge diverse and heavy-hitting forms of drum & bass that fans of both the Agressor Bunx have come to expect. The 4 tracks dropping on the Properties of Addition sampler – BLEAK SHADOWS – THE OFFERING – NINJA – RADICAL SOUND stake out a fierce and advanced sound field that’s going to be pulverizing speaker cones as listeners anxiously await the full release and the level up for both artist and label it represents.

Synergy – Helion EP (EATBRAIN)


To get more of the very latest news faster than anyone then subscribe to our feed : CLICK HERE

RELEASE DATE : 30.01.2016 – Beatport

Deep within the hegemonic core cluster, the brutal but sleek form of the ship Helion cruised with deadly intent across the gravity well of Arkana, the seat of the ruling elite. In its wake, the unraveling, doomed form of the defence moon Scarecrow tumbled across the planetary shore, untethered from its anchor of aeons – core breached and leaking into the vast cold vacuum.

 

The crew stared out over the destruction, the horror of permanent nothingness at such a scale penetrating deep; millions of warriors erased out of existence by the ship’s darkmatter device in a moment with the tearing of the moon. On the surface of Arkana below, the effects were already being felt, with tidal waves towering over urban habitations,and the planetary plates starting to heave and twist in reaction to the forever-changed physics.

The planetscape was contorting to a new form, its body now free from the pull of its closest moon, mindless to the destruction wrought upon the tiny beings and colonies that lay upon its surface. As death itself swept across the circumference of the orb, they observed from the safety of their superweapon high above… the planetary destroyer Helion, decades in the making and the last hope to free themselves from the tyranny of their brutal overlords – the violent breaker of their peoples’ chains.
Following their biggest year yet – with more than 30 live events worldwide, 14 EPs and 2 LPs in their wake – EATBRAIN enter 2017 with a powerful statement in the form of evolved entity SYNERGY (formerly Segment & Concept Vision, whose Mammoth EP was one of 2016’s most successful releases). The HELION EP delivers a heavy payload with 5 tracks of brutally refined neuro destruction from the onset, with title track HELION weaving between heavy rattling distortion and precise break insertions that evolve into an aggressively syncopated 2 step attack.

 

WARRIOR SOUND issues an ultimate call to arms laid down by Miss Trouble’s pointed vocal and a lean and heavy halfstep futurerave beat, whilst halftime slash drumstep hybrid SCARECROW delivers a powerful wave of insanity with its heavy onslaught. ARKANA and DESTROYER pull heavy gut punches with their tear-out upbeat vibes that are certain to be ripping up Eatbrain dancefloors around the planet.

Exclusive Chris S.U Interview


To get more of the very latest news faster than anyone then subscribe to our feed : CLICK HERE

With 2017 round the corner, it’s time to look back at some of 2016’s best bits! Notably, Chris SU and his Solar Eclipse EP on Eatbrain. Out last month (November) It has been constantly in DJ sets across dance floors and festivals Worldwide. Blending tech and breakbeat drums, with squeltchy Neuro bases and ambient synths, it’s one of the strongest Eatbrain releases (Which is saying something) And shows that this man is far from done with D&B, from his beginnings in the early 2000’s to now, he’s proved he knows what needs to be done to be a name in the scene, from heavy and polished tracks, to a slick live show, and he’s even got some YouTube tutorials for aspiring producers… What more could you want?

Ladies and Gentlemen… Chris S.U!

1 – So 2016 has been a pretty mad year for a lot of people, what would you say your biggest and best moment was?
I can’t particularly highlight one moment because 2016 was a good year for drum & bass and for myself, too, but I enjoyed playing at the 20 years of Hungarian drum & bass and Bladerunnaz Welcomes Noisia Invites parties in Budapest, also during the festival season I’ve played at VOLT Festival and Sziget Festival in front of thousands of people. Sun & Bass is always highlight of the year every single time, and the IDM Festival in Bologna in November was great fun, too.

2 – On that note, whats the worst thing that happened to you this year?
Not having a single release on my own label FATE Recordings (I wanted to avoid clashing with my Eatbrain EP, basically that’s the only reason).

3 – Describe your writing process for us?
When I’m making music I’m always trying to put the actual mood I’m in or the feelings I have, the vibe of the should definitely has to reflect this. Sometimes I do have a specific idea of a melody, then I start with that, when I don’t, then I’ll just try to begin with some sound desiging. When I’m catching a good vibe, I need to work on the track as long as time allows because next day I might wake up in a totally different mood and I won’t be able to finish that track to sound how I’d have originally imagined. There are some cases when I make a full length track but I don’t open the project for 2-3 weeks, and if I still like the tune after those weeks, then it’s probably a good track, so I’ll finish it with working on those small details which make things even more interesting.

4 – Are you excited for 2017?
Most definitely, I’ve got big plans for next year. My first ever drum & bass vinyl release came out in 2000 so I think my debut solo album is long time overdue.

5 – Anyone you wished you’d have worked with last year, and who you want to work with this year?
I enjoy making collabs because everytime you work with other people, you can learn something new. That’s not necessarily a techological or productional thing but it could also be his menthality and approach to certain things. So yeah I’d definitely keep on doing some collabs. I’d like to make a track with Optical one day, and also with Klute, they’re both my childhood heroes!

6 – Any new kids on the block we should know about?
I’ve nearly finished my new EP on my own imprint FATE Recordings which contains a collab with Nymfo, also a track with Fedora.

7 – What is your biggest professional fear?
Ugh, this is a tough one. I guess the worst is when I have to cancel gig for reasons out of my hand. That’s always a massive blow. Also I particularly hate when I show up in a club and there are some technical problems.

8 – Any tips for new producers?
I guess a lot of new producers put too much emphasis on the mixdown. My advice for them is to patiently try to do your own thing and the ideas you put into a track and the vibe of it is so much more important than how the mixdown and master sounds. You can learn how to make a decent sounding master later, or just send the track to a professional but a good mixdown won’t sell a bland tune.

9 – Favourite thing you’ve bought this year?
I’ve just upgraded the car stereo to one which supports USB sticks. It was about time, I know 🙂

10 – Tell us something we wouldn’t guess about you?
I really like to play football, we play five-a-side every tuesday. I like to watch it on TV as well but I don’t really support any team. I’m also a big FIFA 17 fan.

11 – Who has been your favourite producer/act this year?
Noisia are always spot on, Break, Mefjus, The Prototypes were on fire as well. Erb N Dub, Crissy Criss and Malux have been doing crazy things as well and I play some new Mindscape tracks which are top secret yet but they’re destroying dancefloors everywhere 🙂

12 – Tell us about how you got started with music?
I’ve been connected with music since my childhood as I went to the local music school and learned to play the cello there. I can’t imagine my life without music!

13 – What do you think the biggest challenge for producers when you started producing was?
At the time I started writing some music with my PC it was around 1996 or 1997. There was no YouTube for tutorial videos, no google to search for information and there was 56k modem internet only. It was very tough to find any sort of information how to do this and that. Also sending my music to people who seemed to be impossible at the time. My PC was very weak at the beginning as well, it was always dragging me back from creating something interesting.

14 – What is the biggest challenge for new kids now?
It is very hard to stand out these days, as there are so many people producing right now. It’s a bit like back in the 70s when then garage bands were in fashion and everyone wanted to be a guitarist. So these days new producers really have to work their ways to create something original.

15 – Who do you want to work with in 2017?
I’ve been part of the scene for a long time and I have my circle of friends who I’m on the same vibe with so I guess I want to keep on working with them. I also want to persuade SKC to return to producing drum & bass, I hope I can get him to come to my studio and make some new tunes together!

16 – What can’t you make music without?
COFFEE.

17 – Plans for more stuff through Eatbrain?
Definitely, maybe in form of another EP or remixes, who knows. Jade is a very good friend of mine and all the Hungarian producers try to help each other in one way or another. We try to stick together.

18 – I personally am a massive BSE fan – is there a full length or more releases on the cards?
The Black Sun Empire guys are top notch lads and I hope we can make some new collabs in the near future. Also their label Blackout is doing really well which I’m very happy about. 🙂

19 – Anything new on FATE recordings we should be waiting for?
The aforementioned EP is next on my label, probably coming out late March or April. We’re planning to make a video for the Fedora collab as well, fingers crossed. I’m planning to release my solo album in the second half of the year.

20 – What does your ideal day off consist of?
Spending the day with the missus watching TV shows laying in bed, or going to the cinema with my family. I guess I’m not really a fan of doing lots of crazy things so if have a day off, I’m just chilling !

Many thanks for your time and all the best for 2017!
