Longing for a bit of exhilarating nihilism? Step right this way. Pythius has joined the Blackout ranks and despite the terrifying ordeal it must be to pass through the various levels of initiation we assume it takes to be granted the right to count yourself among the darkest in the game, he's done an incredible job. Breathtakingly punchy, he's taken a lot of risks throughout the release, pushing neurofunk further still into the realms of immersive hardcore dance. Totally mental and quite simply very, very good, we advise buyers to also purchase bribes for the neighbours who will no doubt be aggrieved by the coming onslaught.
Dutch 'nihilistic DnB' practitioner Pythius was last heard on Blackout's Best Of 2015 comp in January. Now he's back in the game with a new EP, Heresy, which features collabs with a number of respected names including Khronos and DJ Hidden. Highlights include the electro arpeggios, big beats and horror-trance chaos of the title track (made with Black Sun Empire). Neonlight also increase the creepy factor of the apocalyptic "Tarkin" and lastly State Of Mine join the party, for the lunatic laser assault of "Dirty Money".
