Quoted from Viral-Mental Press Release
“Aseity makes a welcome return to Viral-Mental Records and brings with him a quartet of upfront, drum & bass anthems with the release of the ‘RED SERPENT EP.’
The tone of the EP is set by ‘Death Wobble,’ an ominous slice of stripped back D&B composed of skeletal, 2-step breaks, razor sharp synth riffs and rumbling basslines.
The title track, ‘Red Serpent,’ drops a filthy, twisted mid-range stab pattern over a series of relentless crisp breaks and rumbling sub bass to devastating effect.
The menace dripping, ‘Stay,’ expertly utilises authentic oldskool flavas and layers them alongside a barrage of rolling amens, rugged Apache breaks and stepping 2-step beats.
Rounding off the collection, we have, ‘The Apple,’ which lures you in with it’s orchestral intro before delivering a punishing combo of tear-out breaks, growling bass and ominous vocal snippets.
If it’s uncompromising, dance-floor driven drum & bass that you seek, then Aseity more than delivers with this must-have release.”
This hits the nail on the head. Hearing the EP, I can tell you 100% this is a more unhinged and aggressive Aseity from what we have heard in the past. To me, ‘Red Serpent’ and ‘The Apple’ are totally the standout tracks on the EP. Don’t forget to tune into RadioKallisti at 8 PM for our premier of Aseity’s 2003 Vinyl mix title ‘Hearse Driver’ this Saturday! (April 11)
