One of the most recognizable names in the jump-up scene for the past decade, Original Sin has paved a legendary career through his various aliases (including being one half of G-Dub alongside Sub Zero) with legendary tracks such as: Mad World, Dr. Feels Good, 8 Figure Bass, Pimp Don't Limp, Beyond Thunderdome, Beast City, Champagne Cocktails and his 2009 album ‘Grow Your Wings’.
Now making his debut release on Futurebound’s Viper Recordings, the renowned Original Sin is back and he’s returning more powerful than ever. With ‘Red Mist EP’, the production mastermind opens up a new chapter in his career with a diverse 4-track release lead by the title track ‘Red Mist’, showcasing a new sound and evolution to his production.
Futuristic and laced with a techno edge, ‘Expansions’ kicks off the EP with a storm of tinny stabs and punchy snares. This fast-paced, drum-fuelled beat firmly seals Original Sin’s re- introduction to the scene as one which is not to be taken lightly.
Next up, title track ‘Red Mist’ utilises swirling atmospherics and sinister samples to build suspense; sharp-edged vocals guaranteed to get your blood pumping. With a drop that can only be described as straight-up audial assault, this one’ll be resonating across dance floors worldwide.
For the third track, Original Sin teams up with the mighty Jaguar Skills on the hard-hitting ‘Vandals Back (feat. ELE)’ – a sure-fire rave favourite jam packed with a smackdown of mechanised beats and boisterous drums.
Finally, ‘So Vivid’ finishes off this game-changing EP with a supremely engineered, murky roller of a beat. Mechanised riffs and ominous synths leave a lasting impression as the final track proudly showcases the producer’s versatility. A true master of his craft, it’s time to welcome back to mighty Original Sin...
Viper has a sound about them that is easy to spot. It all over the way they mix their drums and the kinds of bass they use. It is this sound that has gotten them to where they are, and it is found in their newest release Red Mist. It seems all the artists they sign have this sound, of course in their own way. You will skitting bass lines and riffing lasers building the way to the next break through the whole EP. If you are in need of a serious jam session then these tunes are just what the doctor ordered. Talking wah, wah basses fill up the low end while synths and bells fill up the highs with lots of noise risers and downers. If humongous lasers are your thing, you know, the kinds that melt all the ears they reach, then you will find yourself satisfied in this EP. Big sounds in general are all over this EP. It is a hard thing accomplish a large sound without destroying or masking out part of the drums or other parts of the mix. But it is accomplished here with skill. Listen for yourself to find out!
