Undersound drops his latest EP project entitled 'Back In Time,' — a four-track exploration into different sub-genres of drum & bass. The 'Welsh Wizard' as he is fondly known within the NexGen camp demonstrates his talent as a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, blessing us with his distinctive vocal style and presence across all four pieces. The goofy EP cover artwork is inspired by his quote "favourite film of all time" - Back To The Future.
Title track 'Back In Time' kicks off the EP with passion and soul featuring the exquisite lead vocals of James. D. Undersound delivers a lush composition consisting of backing vocals, pianos, keys, brass, guitars and FX that intertwine with deep sub bass elements.
'When We Were Young' is an uplifting stepper with crisp energetic drums that flow underneath elaborate layers of pianos, strings, guitars, and arpeggiated synths merged with indignant bass synths and low-end oscillations. Undersound's "shadows in the dark" vox makes for a catchy hooks that may prove difficult to shake...
'She Won't Let You Go' is a ragga-jungle inspired piece complete with horns, FX, and rudimentary off-beat reggae guitar hook as expected. Jump-up style beats and breaks bounce in time with lively bass stabs and squelches, while Undersound's simple but inherently catchy vox enhances authenticity.
'Every Mountain' is a thought-provoking piece that takes you on a journey with pensive undertones and eastern-influenced vibes. Basslines roll deep and minimal style drum breaks initially hit hard with groove and purpose before switching up in the second half of the track to a more standard 4/4-type groove. Undersound's vocal presentation once again compliments the mood with ease and perfection.
Listen, buy, and enjoy! :)
