Various Artists â€“ Cubic EP
In case you don't know, WAR is essentially the black ops division of Technique Recordings. The imprint only emerges from cover on rare occasions and, when it does, it always signals the delivery of a heavy payload of explosive dancefloor material. This particular mission demonstrates that the name Worldwide Audio Recordings is no idle boast. This unit has truly international credentials.
Of course, the UK isn't left out of the party. The prolific North Base crew come scientific with â€œExtrimusâ€, a dark brew of technoid ingredients. An unsettling intro, built from ominous tones and an unpredictable chord sequence, gives way to a surprisingly melodic drop. Riffs and pieces of riff fold and collapse around each other as bass and drum deliver the heartbeat of the track. This is edge-of-the-seat music, with the unexpected around every corner.
This EP shows off both the international and interconnected nature of the scene. Showing off musicality, technical expertise and the variety of individual takes on rave-aimed D&B,
â€œCubicâ€ provides an insight into the minds of some of the hottest producers from around the world. And it'll destroy some dancefloors in the process.
