French production duo Kantyze give it both barrels on their Free Love Digi debut, the powerful Mutation LP.
Fusing twisted synth sounds, bludgeoning basslines and stomping drums into thoughtful, atmospheric and genuinely artistic music, a formidable amount of ground is covered over the course of the record’s nine tracks.
Drum & bass delivered with half-time rhythms, the cacophonous swagger peaks on tracks like ‘Expanse’ and ‘Kyber’, but each cut drips with a different flavour.
The Kantyze project is the work of Feubo and Knockoutz, who have spent the last 20 years deeply immersed in the French bass music scene.
