Premiere: Forbidden Society – The Last Tone (Raise VIP)

Our latest premiere comes courtesy of Czech artist Forbidden Society via his own FS Recordings imprint, taken from his new and appropriately titled Depths EP. Traditionally known for his industrial-tinged, hard as nails D&B bangers, Depths sees the producer exploring other sub styles including bassy halftime and more rolling, less angular D&B.

The Raise VIP of The Last Tone falls firmly into that latter category, combining a rolling break with dark bass and the tone of early 00s era techstep; perhaps FS’s nod to Klute and the like. Whatever the influences, it’s a sick roller with tons of atmosphere! Check it out and look for the EP dropping Sept 15th.

Premiere: Quentin Hiatus – Extreme Malice

US experimental beatsmith Quentin Hiatus continues his relentless onslaught of new material with a fresh EP dropping on the ever dependable Translation Recordings. The oddly titled Extreme Malice doesn’t really live up to its name, but it does serve up a delicious bongo-imbued rhythm, stark atmospheres and that unusual production that makes all of Quentin’s music so compelling. Look for this alongside four other tasty sonic concoctions from September 15th; pre-orders are up now at Bandcamp.
