Premiere: Forbidden Society – Dreamcatcher

Crunching bass textures on a dark and minimal new cut from Forbidden Society! Taken from his forthcoming Liminal Point LP, this one strips things back to the bone, with stark drum rhythms punctuated by sharp breakbeat assaults, powered along by groaning bass howls. Watch out for the album coming April 16th…

Premiere: Forbidden Society – Leech

Forbidden Society is back with possibly his best (and certainly his most varied) album to date, so naturally we had to grab a premiere! Leech sees the producer harnessing his talent for grimey basslines and applying it to the halftime sound that’s been gaining traction over the past few years, with the result being a heavy head nodder with a ton of swagger. Sick! Watch out for the Fog Walk LP coming Feb 8th at Beatport & Spotify, with all other stores following Feb 22nd.

Premiere: Forbidden Society – Forget The Past

Forbidden Society continues his exploration of deeper, less aggressive sounds on the new Armor EP for his own FS Recordings imprint. Classic breaks, piano and shimmering pads sit alongside growling bass textures for possibly the most ‘liquid’ track we’ve heard yet from the Czech producer; wicked stuff. Look for the full EP dropping April 23rd!

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.

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.
