Infra Audientia Part 2 [Dark Manoeuvres]

Dark Manouevres close out their year with the second part of their Infra Audientia series, featuring 4 more tracks from some talented lesser known names. Native goes in super deep on the melancholy liquid of Gone, while Ower strips it back to the bare essentials of bass, breaks and piano licks for Another Day.

Dser’s wobbly bass and break chopping on Death Valley doesn’t really do much for me, but the EP still finishes strong as Beaton turns in a tough techy roller on the creepy, atmospheric Reproduction Prohibition. Check out the clips below and look for this one at your favourite digital stores from December 15th.

Infra Audientia Part 1 [Dark Manoeuvres]

London label Dark Manoeuvres return with a new four track EP showcasing some bright new talents from various corners of the scene. nScape turns in a tough but still melody-tinged roller, bursting with cheeky amens and warm sub, while Beaton turns to slightly moodier territory on the ominously named Cavern.

Altitude keeps the grimey flavour going with a dark stepper which alternates between sparse minimalism and hectic break choppage, all set to a background of creepy pads and warping bass texture. Victor Norman rounds off the EP with a tribal halftime number which fans of None Decay and the like will definitely enjoy. Check out the clips below and grab this one from your favourite digital store now.

Ower & Identified – I Should Have Let Go [Dark Manoeuvres]

Ower teams up with Identified on London label Dark Manoeuvres’ 6th single to kick in a deep, soulful roller characterised by soft female vocals and warm strings. On the B side Running To The Void sees Ower go it alone on a haunting, minimal number which combines dark, faintly robotic bass with some excellent atmospherics and lead flourishes drenched in reverb.

Check out the clips below and watch out for this one dropping Feb 24th from all good digital outlets.
