The opening two cuts Repulse and The Essence - are tunes more aimed at a club environment. Repulses sweeping pads and phased hats push the track forward and the inconspicuous melody adds a subtle musicality that this threesome are quickly becoming known for. The title track of the EP is the heaviest of the 4 with a deep, growling sub bass that is best appreciated on a loud system, and the stepping beats and breathy vocal sample mean this tune is definitely one aimed squarely at the dancefloor.
Aftermath is a chilled, soulful affair with MC Favas sultry vocals perfectly complimenting the laid back vibe and atmosphere of the track, definitely one for the smokers. Distraction steps things down a gear to round of the release. Stripped back beats and bass coupled with slight, hidden melodic nuances creates an ethereal soundscape that is an ideal opening or closing tune for any dj set.
This release is shaping up to be one of the biggest for DSM with all 4 tunes getting played by a whole host of d&b luminaries including DJ Lee, Total Science, Lenzman, Rockwell, Data, June Miller, Anile, Loxy, Lynx, Consequence & SpectraSoul.
It looks set to garner both critical acclaim and commercial success upon its release, and further enhance the glowing reputation Triad have built for themselves in the short time they have been in the d&b consciousness, and that of DSM for promoting new talent and pushing the boundaries when it comes to deep, forward thinking drum & bass.
