PRE-ORDER – S.P.Y: ‘Alone In The Dark EP:3’

September 29, 2017 in News

S.P.Y has been prolific of late returning to the vanguard of the drum & bass circuit with his ‘Alone In The Dark’ trilogy. He’s a man-turned-machine, firing out bass weapons from his Bristolian treasurecave of synths throughout 2017 all leading up to the final chapter, EP:3.

PRE-ORDER

Opening track ‘Transmission’ is ready to cause disorder. Turning vocal hums into premium merkage with a deadly cocktail of percussion and electrostatic bassline that prove to be all the ingredients required for the ultimate floor-filler. ‘Dominator Mode’ is a primal tech-stepper, bringing classically rugged drum & bass stylings well and truly into the contemporary realm. Rustic and tribal with a distorted vocal sample sitting top, manufactures a truly dystopian audio atmosphere.

We all dare to dream but S.P.Y appears to bring these feint fantasies into reality. Reaching for his alter-ego classic liquid movements, the pertinently named ‘Dreaming’ pictures a cosmic landscape with astral synths, a majestic key-lead hook, distant vocals and wistful melodies. Now it wouldn’t be a S.P.Y release without that signature grit. Fear not, this is delivered in ‘Hardcore Harry’. Latin chic breaks are met by jagged sounds and the warmest of sub licks – this anthem is a wall-to-wall banger. Equally, there’s the full flux of ‘Lockdown’ with sci-fi bleeps and wired rhythms that follow an up front lyrical injection before the climactic drop.

They say three’s a crowd but they couldn’t be more wrong with S.P.Y seeing his ‘Alone In The Dark’ trilogy off this October and ending on a high.
