Intrusion 2 EP//Nu Venture Records//Full Spectrum of Drum & Bass U.K.
[A] Rafau Etamski - It's Not Me: Polish Drum & Bass producer Rafau Etamski returns to Nu Venture Records for an unexpected appearance, to open the Intrusion 2 EP, with his aptly named track It's Not Me. Far from his usual characteristic Liquid style he presents us with a production offering more sinister and darker tones from the beginning. With the ultimate emphasis focusing on the drum pattern and bass line, which is expertly accompanied by atmospheric detuned pads, that intensify from the second drop to round off this raucous but bouncy Dancefloor track.
[B] DRTWHT - Wraith: Wraith becomes the second installment on the label from Hungarian producer DRTWHT as he presents his Jump Up inspired Dancefloor roller. Another trademark technical track, in typical DRTWHT style, this time with the primary focus on the dark synths stabs and rolling atmosphere. Additional percussive elements and a gloomy bassline, right from the depth of the the murky shadows, help to increase the perceived tempo of this cross breed mechanical production that is sure to catch your attention.
[C] qk - Until: Estonian newcomer qk is welcomed to the Nu Venture Records roster with his rowdy but energetic track Until. Production was centred around the dominant bass with the intentions of using this as a basis to build this bustling track upon, whilst also drawing on elements from the Jump Up scene, to create the intensity and lively nature of this track. The ideal distressed vocal sample then perfectly compliments the driving flow of Until, alongside heavily reverbed pads and snappy drums, to further enhance the alarming atmospheric tension.
[D] Allumino - Anime: Completing the EP is Ukrainian producer and NVR newcomer Allumino with his truly unique production Anime. As the title alludes to the inspiration for this track, concise Japanese Anime vocal samples are frequent throughout, to help perfect the deep Asian atmosphere surrounding this composition. Traditional Japanese woodwind sounds and percussion work alongside Samurai induced pads for a real sense of Asian flavour, whilst combined with a sinister bassline to round off this intense but bouncy Drum & Bass track.
