Review: The mysterious Masker returns to Audio Danger with his first full single release. Following the theme set in his debut on "Whipped Up" on "The Hydra" earlier this year, the message is clear - groaning droning bass hooks over rattling, tightly-sprung rattling breaks that resonate with all styles in the drum & bass cannon from tech to jump-up. "Shadow Web" is mean piece of work with truly demonic undertone to its spaced-out bass licks while "Victim" gets a little more venomous with its sharp two-step and waspy mutant bassline. Debut singles don't hit with much more authenticity or craft than this - Masker needs your attention.
Review: Ruxim delivers an EP which spans many elements of the dnb spectrum and all understood to a very high, undiluted standard. 'Open Window' has a certain air of Headz about it, with its sweeping pads and ethereal vibe, deep unobtrusive sub, and twists of mutated techiness. 'Scarlett and Georgie' is more of a rolling, ray of light, waves of warmth, a heartfelt vocal and then unexpected swaths of violent metallic, reminding us of Spectrasoul's glory days, great track. 'Don't Sleep' is an all-out itchy, glitchy attack, the gloriously uncomfortable sound of contortion rules the track. 'Stasis' is our standout tack of the release with melancholic chords, and somber atmospherics, the vocal performance by Jimmy Danger, is sophisticate and suave. Fantastic release.
