Undersound makes a swift return to the label with a PHAT slice of Drum & Bass entitled 'Memoirs' , hot off the back of his amazing debut multi-genre LP 'No More Shooting Stars' released on NexGen back in April.
Title track 'Memoirs' features the distinguished vocals of Bella Collins mdash; a featured artist on the 'No More Shooting Stars' LP mdash; who dazzles you with her dreamy blues-infused vocal style. Warm synths, pads and vox lead the intro before dropping into a twisted bass funk rinse-out.
'Challenger' proceeds with a creepy horror-film like symphony and makes no attempt to disguise its dark intentions. Exorcise your demons with this rollin' beast.
'Bullet Bus Boogie' is a tenacious throwback to Undersound's 2012 stomper 'Take Me There,' with this rework taking on a slightly deeper and trepidatious undertone. The funky essence of the original remains and certainly does not disappoint as an equally high-energy dance floor roller.
'Clever Girl' begins with mysterious cinematic soundscapes, but quickly develops into a mixture of heavy bass sludge and fierce drums sprinkled with disturbing vox snippets to augment its eerie intentions. Pure anger is unleashed in this hair-raising roller.
All four tracks do the business without doubt, evocative of his work under Casey Jones on the Dark Star EP released earlier this year. We certainly look forward to more upcoming releases from Undersound.
Listen, buy, and enjoy! :)
