Forbidden Society – Criminal EP Part 1 [Forbidden Society Recordings]

Those who like their D&B on the gnarly side should already be familiar with Czech producer Forbidden Society and his uncompromising brand of darkstep beats. His latest release continues in a similar vein, with four new tracks of heavy hitting bass and beats.

Criminal opens the salvo with a half-time intro and a catchy vocal sample before a full tempo drop featuring heavy kicks and snares. Monger switches things up with a more spacious beat, filling in the space with some seriously aggressive bassline action.

Stress has unfortunately been the subject of some animosity on the part of Receptor (drama fans can read Receptor’s post here and Forbidden Society’s reply here) but it still proves a blasting slice of glitched up hardstep D&B. Finally the EP closes out with Donny’s absolutely belting remix of Heavy Metal Tank, featuring his trademark metallic snares and a monstrous morphing bassline.

Donny & Unknown Error – Songs From The Living Dead [Barcode]

The Barcode camp deliver a characteristically stomping 12″ from Donny and Unknown Error! First up South African hardstep veterans turn in a seriously rough and tough remix mashing up Donny’s The Forgotten and Symptomless Coma. The drop on this one is vicious!

 Over on the flip Donny steps up for remix duties on Unknown Error’s War Games, stripping back the hammering drum lines to let the grimey, warped bass breath, and chucking in some chunky distorted amens for good measure.

Forbidden Society & Donny / Audio – Creator & Destroyer / Burn It Down [Forbidden Society]

ForbiddenSocI’m quite partial to a bit of the hard, nasty stuff from time to time and few do it better than Czech producer Forbidden Society. When it comes to face-smashing, metal-influenced, gabba-tinged belters, he’s definitely your man. For this particular release, he’s teamed up with Barcode head-honcho Donny, the other master of pots-and-pans darkstep wrongcore, so no surprise then that this release is a little special!

The build up on Creator and Destroyer features some nice sampling of one of Bane’s speeches from The Dark Knight Rises and some dirty reese action before dropping into a totally stomping beat with some classic Donny metallic snares on the go. As if this wasn’t enough, the flipside comes from none other than Audio, who provides a fantastic scuzzy roller reminiscent of his early work on Dylan’s TechFreak imprint. Just to round things off nicely Forbidden Society provides The Punch as a digital only bonus track.

Check out the previews below and watch out for release date info soon!
