Under the radar, and with the minimum of fuss, something deadly has been released into the D&B scene. Since the Let Me Fly EP signalled the arrival of the Erb N Dub and Skope team-up to Technique, they've loosed a highly-targeted selection of musical shots, each time adding another unpredictable twist to their sound. Altitude arrives with a deep and humid environment, conjuring shades of nineties atmospheric jungle with a disconcerting element of darkness. Vinyl crackles vie with a sharp edge of digital distortion to maintain an incessant mood of tension, augmenting the shifting and writhing of the rhythm. Even the apparently-metronomic snare, which is the closest thing to a still centre the tune has, modulates and reforms as the track progresses. This is simultaneously addictive, dazzling and baffling, a pocket universe in which small-hours ravers can lose themselves. Meanwhile Drummer adds a totally different complexion. Weaving a nexus of dense jungle undergrowth in the intro sets the tone. Then, as the title and punctuating dialogue samples suggest, this builds into a tune that's all about the percussion. Bass squelches and sweeps provide a bed for driving tribal kick drum bombardments, pitch-shifting snares and variations in the second half of the track that are straight out of the showing-off-at-drum-programming handbook. These beats have everything the most technical edits aficionado might desire, but delivered with a funky dancefloor sensibility that keep this tune aimed squarely at the rave. It's clear that Erb N Dub and Skope share a passion for rhythmical and musical innovation that supersedes any thought of genre conventions. So, when they team up to drop a tune the only thing you can predict is that you'll want in your life.
