‘Viper Records’ has been consistently feeding our dnb sonic habits aggressively so, harvesting well diversified sounds and A1 curations from their lair. This brings us to this special collabo which comprises of producers who’ve covered a lovely scope of bass variety. That being the hefty ‘Teddy Killerz’ as well as the duo ‘Synergy’, on a tag team vibe thing getting on the track at hand, ‘Smooth’.
The track’s intro goes off on a sinister tone and a stabby bass build-up, but peaks into a rather playful stepper groove with an adequate amount of bounce to keep you steady at your feet. Also complementing the production is an evocative and well arranged vocal that licks at your sonic pleasures whispering the words ‘Hey keep it Smooth’.
As the year schemes closer to that time of the year, projecting the heavyweight DnB Festival, Let it Roll; sees labels and artists assimilate what’s at hand and churn out concept EPs in a series called “Goes to Let It Roll”. Now at our disposal is the forces over at Eatbrain on the circuit bestowing 5 whole tracks featuring artillery from their roster of artists by the likes of Chris.Su, Malux, Mob Tactics, Synergy as well as Zombie Cats.
Eatbrain’s curation on this EP can be heard assembling into formation of their belligerent sound chiselling it’s way to being a dominating factor as if the event is already full throttling in last gear. A mean cut spearheading the EP comes from ‘Synergy’ with the track “Let It Roll” which can just as well be the Anthem with the weighty vibes it carries. Virtuoso’s Mob Tactics giving the tune “Dimension” a real switcher towards the end leaving you wondering what more could’ve come off that. The robust Eatbrain has delivered quite a potent batch of tunes on this offering further solidifying their breed of neuro and their stance in the scene.
If you had been living under a rock for whatever reason for the past couple of months and are totally unaware who Synergy is, well, I take this opportunity to enlighten you a little bit. Synergy is the combination of two forces which are set to bring you a Super-Saiyan of production prowess in their establishment. And that is Segment & Concept Vision. This is their first offering under this Alias with a full EP. Their very first tune under their new Alias was “Rage” on Neodigital’s Neurofunk V2. Now, to get underneath this EP on Eatbrain and evaluate…
Helion, the 5 track adrenalin inducing caliber of Synergy is set to etch their dynamic to further extreme degrees as a solidified duo. First on the block is ‘Arkana’ which opens up slowly with an enigmatic intro, then pacing up to drop into an unexpected strident synthesis but well embellished. Well showcasing the Eatbrain style and that of the artists.
Getting into the swing of things to this EP as we move onto the second track. Titled ‘Destroyer‘, from which you can tell from the intro that there’s sufficient suspended intensity which is set to blow up the moment the track drops. And without fail the tune is a menacing fire-ball and unlawful with its sporadic cuts.
The follow up to this is ‘Warrior Sound‘ which employs the vocal work of “Miss Trouble” with a steady delivery. The track takes a much slower approach than the other two previous tunes. Displaying half-time tones and sufficient grit so that you’re not too comfortable.
Then comes in the title track ‘Helion‘ eagerly awaiting its turn if I may say. A grand intro is just a standard for such a name and it being the title track. The cinematic soundscape plays out, unveiling a vocal sample disgorging a caution to take heed upon. Then the track lashes out into electrifying whips with the second drop sending out spastic waves. depicting finesse.
Then we come to the final track on the EP. ‘Scarecrow‘, a track set to cut your breaths by half cause of the twisted articulation it brings that will have you in disbelief. The EP shows nothing much has changed but the progression of the sound they’ve always been known for working together. Also, could we just give props for the ever stellar artwork that always accompanies Eatbrain releases? Always mint and on point!
