Two brand new releases exclusive from Praxis Distribution –
And this week only from Praxis mail order & shop ahead of general release
Amboss: Kompressorwahn/Avenida Paulista
The most relentless Sub/Version release so far! Two mighty tracks combining a wall of sound with rave hyper-energy. Side A “Kompressorwahn” kicks off with stepping tension-oriented rave-esque melodies quickly culminating in the most extreme pounding beats that throttle your nerves and whip the dancefloor into a frenzy with no end in sight. Amboss keeps up the pressure with the side B track titled “Avenida Paulista” in which hard industrial effects, intense frequencies and relentless beats are pushed to the limit. Deemed to be “too hard” for some, Sub/Version 014 by Amboss demolishes all other drum and bass tracks around thus demonstrating the possibilities for further explorations in hybrid extreme sounds.
Darkmatter Soundsystem frequents their third visit to vinyl (DM12003) this time around with the Southern California native Poxxe. The 12″ kicks off with a screaming dubstep floorkiller titled “The Malfunction” sure to incite soundsystems and crowds. Next up is the rattling tear out breakcore track titled “Funky Lizard” with Minion on the collab. On the flip side, the two tracks “Yellular” & “Plastic Hip” explore the more sparse rhythms and tones of Poxxe’s sound. A strong follow up to the label’s previous release (DM12001) “Minion – Bored In The U.S.A. EP.”
