Once again staying loyal to Uprise Audio, London/LA producer Asylum is back in town with a new four-tracker. Perhaps he's been heading out to the Californian desert on peyote adventures a la Jim Morrison, who knows, but Native American references pervade throughout this new Native EP. It's certainly one of his more meditative offerings, but we need music for our heads as much as for our feet. Highlights include the sinister midnight hum of "Things You Don't Know", the tomahawk scalper "Chino" and the synthy smoke signals of "Kill Room".
Hailing from Vancouver on Canada's west coast, Daega are two brothers making international waves. Their latest missive, Under Pressure, should only further their reputation in the world of bass, with three tracks of doom laden dubstep with icy techno ("Under Pressure"), ghetto ("Spirit") and spacey soul ("Abyss") overtones.
