Thrashpilot’s weird and wonderful assault on the 170BPM realm continues with the appropriately named Galaxian; an other-worldly, acid-techno infused slice of frenetic, wonky electronica that bears resemblance to most D&B only by virtue of heavy kicks and snares and a similar tempo. This one is hypnotic and hard hitting in equal measure.
Over on the flip One Armed Man heads back for traditional breaks but throws standard song structure out of the window as the eclectic producer takes us on a 10 minute epic journey that takes in a variety of different breaks and atmospheres, all with a distinctly dubby vibe.
Check out the clips below and watch out for the release at all good digital outlets from November 5th.
Hot on the heels of his debut release for Killscreen Recordings, Thrashpilot delivers an hour long mix of recent influences including a wide spectrum of D&B action. Some personal favourites of mine are included, notably the excellent Inner Space by Apex. An hour of diverse, forward thinking D&B beats…check it out!
After a lengthy absence from the scene Thrashpilot returns with a new single on a new label, and hits home with some genuinely innovative beats. Firewalker gets straight down to business with some great synth work, warm techy bass and an insistent hat-led half-step beat. Imagine 2005-era Boxcutter making D&B and you’re somewhere close.
Over on the flip Calisthenics takes things up to full roll but keeps the beat angular with kicks and distorted snares dropping left right and centre. Robotic midrange and rumbling, fast-paced sub adds to the character of the tune before a drop into ethereal, floaty bridge before the tune comes back in for round two. Watch out for these dropping July 15th.
