Skyline EP
10 Jan 11
Drum And Bass
Metropolis - (5:51)
Skyline - (5:12) Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.95
Review: Bass heavy business prevails once more on the latest release from Ammunition Recordings. The title track from Centra's Skyline EP kicks off with a textured intro full of background noise, curious murmurings and rough, skittering breaks. The trance-like palette of sounds and shifting, jingling SFX return at various points throughout the track, whilst driving, battering drums shape the tune from below. Arguably, the b-side is where it's really at on this one; "Metropolis" sees Centra really come into his own. Metallic, percussive beats line the intro with stomach-lurching stabs and heavier-than-thou Phace-style thumps. One for fans of the heavier side of D&B, no question.

Precursor - (5:12) 57 BPM
from $1.95
Review: Emperor began his journey not so long ago with his own brand of drum & bass that reaches beyond the depths. This EP sets out in stone his arrival into the inner circle. Starting off with the hauntingly savage "Begin" featuring the silken tones of Georgia Yates, there is no let up in the speed or accuracy with which tunes are flung forward. "She Said" is a double bass stepper Roni Size would be envious of, "Radar" rips through minimal synths at hyperspeed, "Precursor"'s strange, offset tape noise intro gives way to serious bass tremors and "Solar", featuring fellow English bass terroriser Centra blasts partway through the universe with huge neuro shockwaves. A serious contender for EP of the year so far.
