Review: We can happily confirm that Enei is in startingly good form on his first solo release for nigh on 12 months, delivering a quartet of cuts rich in bombastic bass, punchy D&B drums and his usual aggressive, forthright electronic sounds. He hits the ground running with opener "Voices", a peak-time ready affair where quick-shot Amen fills and echoing vocal snippets occasionally punctuate a typically rolling affair, before reaching for one of the biggest and darkest basslines known to humankind on the enormous "Recoil". Veteran Bristol mic man Jakes lends his distinctive rap flow to hot-stepping Particle collaboration "Fame", while skittish closing cut "Rollin Machine" very much lives up to its title.
Review: Drum&BassArena award winning Austrian Mefjus proves his hype once again with two outrageously heavy cuts. "Contemporary" (a collaboration with the equally talented Icicle) has already become an early seasonal highlight, all sheet metal sound design and mind-bending dynamics. "Dissaude" is heavier again; tub-thumping drama with a cinematic sense of drama, it's contemporary neuro on a Phace & Misanthrop level. Something tells us more awards will find their way onto the Mefjus trophy cabinet in the near future.
