Des McMahon's flare for deep and dark drum & bass knows no bounds. The Second Renaissance EP is a brilliant and diverse piece of work, blending dystopian future soundscapes with driving beats and twisted neuro bass lines. The title track's necksnapping breaks and soaring reese style bass lines start this release with big energy, while Stephen Parsons melancholy guitar licks drive us through to the other side. 'Blackhearted', a rolling bass driven track flaunts an eerie vocal aesthetic. 'Stone Fists' brings the grit, spouting distorted bursts of bass and a trance inducing repetition, while the bass line in 'Voodoo' will send shivers down your spine as it warbles and modulates, creating an undeniably addictive bounce.
