State Of Mind leads off with the eponymous 'Full Force'. From the first beat, 'Full Force' sees SOM balance the slick, robotic aesthetics of neurofunk DNB with the confident swagger of rock and metal; The duo makes it look easy. Live instrumentation subtly sets the stage from the outset, building eventually to a concoction of paper-crisp bass and weighty, swinging drums. Chris.SU joins SOM on the next joint - 'Chariots' - and the result is addictive. It doesn't come as a surprise - since their first collaboration in 2007, the names SOM and Chris.SU have together been synonymous with quality. 'Chariots' warms things up in classic fashion, with ominous voices underlying swaths of uplifting heroic melodies, although that's where the roadmap ends. The duo brings us into a fierce groove of warmly oscillating and grinding basslines, only cut short as they're forcefully punctuated with a lethal arrangement of menacing lead synth stabs. The verdict on this one is clear - a pure dancefloor killer. It's a testament to their finesse as collaborators, that they so easily walk the line between the listeners' expectations and sounds, rhythms and structures which are entirely alien - in the best way possible. 'Bypass' makes its chaotic intentions clear from the start - utilizing a pleasingly forboding melody and carefully layered effects, SOM raises the pressure to it's maximum level as they unleash a dirty pulsating bassline atop clamorous upfront drums. Closing out Full Force EP comes a collaboration for the ages - State of Mind with Budapest dons Jade and Mindscape. The product is a track worthy of the trio. No-nonsense sci-fi synth melodies and slick, uplifting arpeggios transport 'Know Your Place' into the distant future before SOM, Jade, and Mindscape bring things back with a dirty, earthy reece which ricochets upon towering sub bass and tactile, concussive drums. Each producer leaves their mark on the track, which is equal parts seduction, ruthlessness, and funk. This trifecta makes 'Know Your Place' an authentic blueprint for dancefloor annihilation.
