Amboss: Kompressorwahn/Avenida Paulista
(Sub/Version 014)

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.

Poxxe: Iono
(DM12003)

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.”

Sub/Version 013 – Vile Enginez: Cycadelic / Tool out now!

After several months on white label Vile Enginez’ new release on Sub/Version is out this week – a mind trip through devilish labyrinths of a myriad of sound constructions. Vile Enginez, hailing for Basel, CH, has produced his most innovative and complex record yet – and look for his next Zhark Intl. release sometime in the future. Taking up the Sub/version project of twisting drum n bass and smashing up whatever has become standard for the genre, Vile Enginez bizarre creation clearly demonstrates his masterful production and technical skills. “Cycadelic” might be best described as creating the feeling of a black magic trip spurned on by female power gone mad – this is a track that will push everyone on the dance floor to extremes. “Tool” works perfectly with the dynamic of “Cycadelic” making a forceful totality of this 12” (played at 33 rpm). Hard-hitting beats, crazed ambiences, distorted full powered bass and rhythmic complexities abound !
