“Next Phase Records deliver another instalment of breakbeat driven Drum and Bass with their second digital only EP. This release features four new tracks from the more scientific end of the musical spectrum. Expect intricate edits,intoxicating basslines and cosmic soundscapes.
Unknown Session by Faible & Konfusion is dark and chaotic. An ominous riot of hardcore stabs and distortion, the track is a constant battle between breaks and bass that is unpredictable and wild.
Freedom by Apollo 14 combines techno style chords and electronic harmonies with soulful drum edits and female vocals. A celebration of independence Freedom evolves into an uplifting Good Looking style amen roller.
Pathway by Fushara starts out as a melodic journey through the cosmos before descending into much darker and sinister terrain. Turbulent edits and somber atmospherics add to this menacing soundscape.
Solstice by Acid Lab is haunting and sparse. Using subtle effects and a mysterious vocal citing “This is the whispering voice” the track evolves with funky drum edits and dispersed sounds that create a dark and shadowy atmosphere. ”
