Before the reverberations of the mighty TECH 100's onslaught have even faded away, Drumsound and Bassline Smith are back with Part 2. First up is Phantasm. The intro stabs infuse the room with echoes of hardcore, and this vibe doesn't let up. Growling bass and haymaker drums maintain a relentless assault and, even when the track breaks down, the high-tension stabs punch back in giving no time to let up. Then, in Make Some Noise, gentle piano chords blend with warm analogue synths to create a shimmering sunrise of an intro. The calm is shattered with a shot of adrenaline made of a driving mid-line and tumultuous drums. Now that the energy level's appropriately red-lining, the VIP edit of Can U Feel It maintains it. This is the original track reworked into an unstoppable steamroller of bouncy percussion, syncopated bass and salute-to-the-old-skool sample selection. Finally, we roll into Violator. This is call-to-action music. The intro delivers film-score dram before a monster drop keep the plot unfolding, building into an unmissable epic. It's still only early in 2014, but Drumsound and Bassline Smith have already set the tone. Joining the dots between the past and future of drum and bass music, this second part of TECH 100 perfectly sets the standard for the next century of Technique Recordings releases. So don't blink, you'll want to be watching.
