Intraspekt - Shinobi / Neighbourhood Watch

Release Date: 09/07/2018

Label: XEX Audio

Catalog: XEX015

Intraspekt is the artist people have been watching out for over the years. He's been bridging a gap within drum & bass, one characterised by its heavier settings, as well as the complex strands of tuning which push producers like Intraspekt onto the forefront of music's trend setting agendas. And he delivers a stunning double sided record, one which peddles a slamming blow on both ends. From 'Shinobi' right through to its flip 'Neighbourhood Watch', Intraspekt goes for the vital points and shows no signs of slowing down as the first bass notes begin to hit.

Forthcoming on one of the finest independent imprints within drum & bass, 'Shinobi' and 'Neighbourhood Watch' pull no punches when it comes to their climaxes and dramatic breakdowns. Your first example is through the initial drop of 'Shinobi', with its dark and moody atmospherics merging alongside its drawling bassline snaps, which dive th roughout rampant levels. 'Shinobi' has a dancefloor twist, one which is inherently Intraspekt's and demonstrates why he's built such an imperative fan base over recent months. 'Shinobi' is cutting edge, with stepping beat patterns and waves of thumping subs. This track is about to do serious damage through the clubs this coming festival season, with Intraspekt laying down beat after hard-lined beat.

'Neighbourhood Watch' begins with looping sci-fi inspired samples, ones which slowly creep on their listener until its drums suddenly kick into play. Spiking levels of bass-distortion are stepping stones throughout the mix, which drag you in further and further before you're submerged under its weighty rhythms. It's as ominous as its predecessor, whilst being marginally different through its aggressive hook. Gradually it begins to filter through more and more elements before it takes its full form. It's a complicated sequence, one which highlights how finely honed Intraspekt's production genius has become as he builds his back catalogue throughout the explosion of his career. This is an exciting movement for Intraspekt, proving he has an undeniable penchant for bass driven destruction. The type to push him through dizzying heights as he progresses over the coming years; the time of Intraspekt is here.
