Review: Eatbrain are the Hungarian purveyors of big beats and badass basses, the moody crew in the corner who are intimidating with all their talk of death and destruction. That's exactly what's present on this EP which features four remixes of State of Mind from SoM themselves, IHR, Synergy and Mob Tactics. IHR's remix of Highlander is the standout tune, with a hype-inducing build that explodes into a blustering array of tangled bass and tendrils of percussive force with hints of acid in the synths and a sharp edge to the overall sound. Amazing tune.
Review: The machine has awoken! Eatbrain bossguy Jade returns with four more woke wallopers. The title track says it all; stripped back and slippery, it's a meaner, more minimal rampage from the untouchable neuro king that's followed by an absolute riot of a jam in the form of "Highlander". Co-created with fellow bass terroriser State Of Mind, it's a savage shock to the sense with its layers of menacing psy-textures. Elsewhere the experience is complemented by the warped synth and dense pressure of "Not Safe" before we're eaten alive by "Man Eating Lizard Dragon". Spitting fire at a devilish 150 BPM, this is a whole new side to the machine we've not witnessed before.
