Confucian SoundIntervore // Sulphur EP
Making his debut appearance on Korea’s Confucian Sound, Dutch drum and bass stalwart Intervore returns with the forward-thinking two-tracker, “Sulphur” / “F7200”.
Since emerging on the scene in 2018, the relative newcomer has gained increasing renown as a fine craftsman of atmospheric soundscapes, releasing the winding, arpeggiated roller “Frameshift” and the burgeoning banger “Singularity” via Conflate Audio last year as his first full release. Picking up where these songs left off, the young talent offers up two slices of ambient techstep on his new release.
An amalgamation of tranquil drones, luscious pads and lo-fi percussion kicks off “Sulphur”, which goes on to deftly weave in and out of gravelly, mechanical drops. Accented by formant growls and choppy snares, the track showcases the rising producer’s ability to juggle dynamic range with masterful precision, perfectly fitting in with the Confucian Sound roster.
Commencing with a tense, immersive arrangement of reverberating bells, menacing buzzing and frenzied cymbals, “F7200” erupts into clanking crescendos marked by barbed basslines and supercharged drums, making for an altogether more riotous affair than its predecessor. Showcasing a darker and heavier side to Intervore’s production ability, the track serves as a promising indicator of what’s to come from the emergent Dutchman, once again proving Confucian Sound’s impressive radar for scouting the next generation of drum and bass talent.
