South London based duo 1Nine8Two bring a weighty tracklist for their 30m mix - keep your ears peeled - we’ll be hearing much more from them in the near future, trust me.. Watch out for the interview that’ll be coming very soon as well..
Killawatt - Interplay EP (Free Download on Inverted Audio)
Killawatt comes in harder than ever, not only has his latest release just dropped on Kryptic Minds' well-established Osiris Music (Mystic Vocation / Centipede Effect), but he’s gone and treated us all to a free EP consisting of some major dubs..
‘Interplay’, also the title of the EP, is a huge opener - haunting pads and scattered percussion set the track off, then in come the drums with some signature Killawatt bongos to accompany them, layered over a thunderous sub-line with a roaring synth and melodic mids to follow.. ‘Locked In' starts off with pace-keeping hats and snare and a lurking melody in the background produced with absolute perfection as always, then the kick is introduced to set the track off properly on a tribal tip with added interweaving melodies and a gradual build-up throughout the drop that turns the track into a true roller.. 'Re-engaged' opens with an industrial sounding sample layered with some interesting percussion sounds, the drop hits hard and is like a trip through a jungle - packed full of rolling percussion and funky drums and the odd pad throughout creating a tribal atmosphere that only Killawatt would be capable of doing.. ‘Ether’, the concluding track to the EP, opens very spacious with pads panned all over the sound field and a nice EQ filter drum build-up to the drop, then the signature synth presets are used and creates a tense feeling, however the delayed pad/piano sound on the first beat of most bars, the minimal drums and other magical pads add to the laid-back feel of the track..
