The wait is finally over. This month, Pythius unveils a monster of a debut album; the 12-track Descend, forthcoming on Blackout. The mighty Dutchman has teased us for months with two heavy-hitting singles, From the Future / Akkoord ft. June Miller and Monster Black Hole. Now, Pythius rolls out the full LP that his loyal fans have been waiting for, all guns blazing and toting an incredibly diverse selection of tracks. It’s been years in the making; this is one album that ensures that the wait was absolutely worth it.
Descend will keep your bass cravings at bay for weeks on end. Expertly crafted to take the listener on a journey throughout a multidimensional musical landscape, Pythius’ creativity and skill resonates from start to finish. Meticulously blending clean, cutting-edge sound design with fierce bass and his signature drum beats, it’s very clear that Pythius took no shortcuts during the making of Descend. The album signifies a progression of Pythius’ artistry, as it touches down on territories previous unchartered by the producer. From aggressive neurofunk, to metal influence, to straight-up synthwave, Descend helps turn a new page for the drum and bass genre.
Pythius’ Descend follows previous EPs Abandon, New Order and Heresy, all of which rocketed the producer in to the limelight in his field. Not only are Pythius’ studio efforts paying off in terms of his musicality, his touring schedule is continually heating up to a level close to that of his productions. Catch him playing out his new material across Europe this year, with stops at the Netherlands, Germany, UK, France, Romania, Spain and more.
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.
PYTHIUS PULLS OUT ALL THE STOPS ON NEW SINGLE FOR BLACKOUT
“Distinctive heavyweight neuro science” — UKF
“An icon in the drum and bass scene” — RAVER RAFTING
Synonymous with the name ‘Pythius’ comes the anticipation of innovative beat-making, technical expertise and top-of-the-range drum and bass. And that’s exactly what the Blackout heavyweight is offering with his newest single From The Future / Akkoord ft. June Miller.
Hailed as one of Blackout’s most impressive rising stars back in 2014 with his Abandon EP, the Dutch DJ and producer has since made a name for himself with his unique brand of high-octane, explosive drum and bass. Continuing his reign in the scene up until the present day, Pythius is well-known for his fiery, hard-hitting beats and the prominence he holds alongside pioneers Black Sun Empire, State of Mind and Neonlight amongst others.
Pythius treats us to a bold slice of sonic disorder with From The Future, expertly combining a commanding bassline with a special kind of emotional musicality of which only he is capable. On the flip side, Pythius drafts in fellow drum and bass powerhouse June Miller for Akkoord – a suspenseful roller in which the producers’ attention to detail and bass expertise comes to the fore.
With a full LP on the not-too-distant horizon, From The Future / Akkoord ft. June Miller pulls out all the stops as a taster of what’s to come. Available from 27th October via Blackout.
