First up, Never Say Die's Skism steps up offering a truly rambunctious remix of Excision & Downlink's original "Heavy Artillery". Think Doctor P meets Skrillex meets early Caspa and you're almost there; we're talking piercing synth screeches, thudding drum kicks, industrial vocodered vocal sample, warping accelerations and skittering SFX in plentiful abundance. And if that wasn't enough Document One goes in on "Reploid" with reckless abandon, twisting it up with tremendous crashes, Flux Pavillion style flourishes and wobbly bassline in full tow. If you like your dubstep raucous and ridiculous, then this one's for you.
A monstrous three-track EP here from a collection of the more aggressive side of dubstep's finest, including Downlink, Dux and Excision. "Antimatter (feat. Depone)" kicks things off with a frenzy of juddering synths, pounding bass and razor sharp snares and paves the way for Dux's "Only Chaos", up next, with its cinematic intro, dramatic stabs, trigger cocking SFX and Noisia-esque explosive quality. Frequent collaborator with Datsik, Excision rounds things off with "The Village" - an epic, tech-y venture with belching bassline and growling subs. Intense but impressive.
