Disprove has dropped a hard EP on us that goes by the name “Damage”. You can hear all sorts of bass in the background, from the heavily distorted to the heavily resampled, it is there! Set in a galactic criseis, each track serves to open a new eye to the struggle faced when the sensitive intergalactic peace of the cosmos is interrupted by a swarm of invading pods, which will change the balance of the universe.
Two Faced starts us off with some incredible ravaging bass lines, with the drums ripping holes in the sound to fit in. The name seems to imply a sort of political corruption and when the drop hits you feels its full effect!
Cosmic Law takes us for another spin. Great use of space in here, as you hear synths fly around in the stereo image and a voice melds out of the soundscape. It appears that there is no court in session in this track, no...instead it feels more like the very laws of the universe, the ones that no one can change, and they are meeting out the justice that only they can give. Ripping shards of metal bass with heavy grounded bass lines shove their way against each other, attempting to reshape the conflict.
Supernatural brings a force, perhaps one that does not answer to the cosmos in the mix. Excellent use of vocals and sounds that rise in a very organic way, bringing everything to a climax that resolves into a mix that fits so well that it is hard to imagine anything else as a possibility.
Finishing us off is Damage. A fitting name for the final track, a look at what is left after the conflict, the destruction, turmoil, change, and perhaps even a chance for new life. Once again, Disprove’s sense of structure is spot on, writing and producing phrases that even the most untrained ear can sense as smooth and vivid, indeed a masters work.
Of EP’s of this kind, it is always a wonder how such masterful bass sounds are produced and mixed in such a comprehensive and cohesive way. An excellent work, that those who jive to the sounds of drum and bass will seek out for sure!
Press Release //
They had watched silently and stealthily from the cold vacuum of space, processing the activity of the civilization on the planet designated by the prime species as ‘Earth’. Monitoring the frequencies below and this culture’s increasingly advanced, but still infant communication technologies. The enforcers of galactic order - observing and calculating the potential for breaching the rift at that critical moment of social and technological advancement at which so many races had fallen. These primes were culturally schizophrenic, with much of the race confusing universal anomalies for the supernatural whilst the elite reached ever deeper towards a true understanding of the mysteries that would unlock access to the depths of the galaxy. The exploration of volatile sonic forces both powerful and dangerous, with the potential to turn simple civilizations into dangerous swarms with the capacity to disrupt the galactic harmony. Cosmic law had been established to prevent the untold destruction these errant and infectious signals had caused in the past, to coldly, brutally and entirely annihilate those who dared to handle powers beyond their means of control. That moment had come… they were on the verge and it was not to be allowed. Drop-pods ascended from the Underverse into real time planet-wide, falling from the skies in vast numbers, crushing everything in their path, full of their deadly, precise and unstoppable cargo. The podbay doors opened, spilling the civilizational surgeons onto the planet surface, commencing their operation of maximum DAMAGE…
Disprove returns to Eatbrain in force with his DAMAGE EP, following up his hard-hitting anthems - FRQNCS and Tip Slip - from the Mirror Universe LP last year. Delivering his inimitable Brutalist style with perfectly crafted distortion and towering waves of bass, held together with dynamic and kinetic percussion. His highly anticipated arrival on the label with a full EP delivers fully against ravers’ expectations, showcasing the sound of aggressive perfection unique to this exceptionally talented producer and representing an entirely fresh and unique vision of the d&b spectrum.
