Following on from last year's huge Hypnosis release, Manuel Pepe aka Veerus returns to Drumcode with another killer big room EP. The title track resounds to pounding kicks, frazzled riffs and a wobbly sub-bass as Pepe puts his equipment through its paces. The break down offers only temporary relief before the tough rhythm picks up again. On "Year", Veerus opts for a more streamlined approach; underpinned by a booming bass, he drops bleak tones and ghostly, wailing synths. "Pyramid" isn't as intense and revolves around rolling house drums, but the soaring tranced out melodies, coupled with a funk bass and utilitarian percussion, is still highly effective.
