NexGen Music drops a new installment of Drum and Bass with Dirty-D's 'Feelin' Moody' EP.
Dirty-D (a pseudonym of NexGen founder D.A ) has devoted his life to break-infused underground music now spanning over 25 years. D.A is a true early adopter amassing inspiration from the Acid House/Hardcore/Breakbeat/Rave era predating the evolution of Jungle/Drum & Bass. The 'Feelin' Moody EP' was borne from a recent exploration of unfinished sketches going as far back as the late 90's/early 00's, reimagined and polished to today's standards.
The EP opens with title track 'Feelin' Moody' which boasts a warm intro entwined with an infectious vox that paves the way for raw industrial amen breaks, aggressive old skool rave synths and a deep sub bassline that rumbles south of 40Hz.
'Do You Love Me?' is a high-energy rolling stepper that builds from an intelligent drum and bass intro into a sinister march, with weaving angry synths reminiscent of classic Ed Rush and Optical.
The breaks are fully unleashed on 'Radial Exposure' as Dirty-D brings up the tempo and drops something seriously nasty for the early hours. More angry tones cut through your brain with clever samples of feedback loops manipulated with excessive filter effects.
The last punch of the EP 'Choppin' It' deceptively begins on a light jump-up tip before morphing into a full body roller, with multi-layered breaks infused with twisty acid 303s and plucky bass guitar. 'Choppin' It' is all kinds of head nodding jump-up goodness.
Listen, buy, and enjoy! :)
