'Fallen Angel' is a return to the tech layered engineering which Total Science have become renowned for and it's a return to the old school vibes that still litter their sets. With cranking breaks which leave marks against its metallic swatches of percussion, 'Fallen Angel' begins to ramp up throughout its intro, snipped up with distorted vocals and a slow decent into thundering bass stabs. The track takes another descent midway, bringing you into more subterranean levels, ducking and diving between each jungle-esque breakdown. Total Science makes a welcome revisit, alongside another mind bending dancefloor offering.
On the reverse, 'Not Again' delivers a completely different set of atmospherics, featuring jazzy undertones and bleating melodies of sonic. Channelling a more liquid undertow, Total Science pay homage to the more subdued half of their back catalogue, with harmonic, yet distorted vocals and instrumental breakdowns. The versatility shown by Total Science on their forthcoming single helps to demonstrate why they're such focal artists within drum & bass and why they've stood on its forefront for a number of years. Their compositions are unshakeable and their music filled with the type of energy which drives the heart of any late night set. This is why CIA Records has stood the test of time.
