BDMUP003: Slaven - Dissolve / Slaven & Biak - Whispers
Release Date: 1st March 2013 - Out now!
Our third release introduces the sounds of Slaven.
Our third release in; and our first of 2013 brings you Slaven. The 18 year old producer unleashes an all-out skanker with Dissolve and a minimal and slightly twisted affair with Whispers, the highly anticipated collaboration with Biak.
BDMUP003 epitomises a certain sound. Although both tracks have a style unique from each other, they still provide a sense of coherence. The A side, Dissolve, serves up solid, skeletal drums. The ideal framework for the fleshed out sub bass and evil mids that swap and change melodically and rhythmically throughout. The track erupts into a deadly swamp of aggression before gradually calming down and coming back with vengeance for the last section... A tried and tested dancefloor destroyer. Whispers, the AA side and commotion causing collaborative effort with Biak (Co-Owner of Vulcan Audio and a scene staple in his own right) takes things a little deeper. The eerie intro and atmospheric tones, combined with an emotive and compelling vocal sample don't even begin to prepare you for what comes next. The drop is a problem. Its one of those so simple yet so impactive "Fuck off!" moments. As it pulses out of a system it creates an intense adrenaline rush - then just when you think Whispers is at it's peak - Slaven's mid range aggy-ness creeps in for a second outing, seasoning the already moody soundscape and supporting the aforementioned sense of contrast.
Slaven has received DJ and Radio support from the likes of Joe Nice (Gourmet Beats), Kursk (Rood FM / Innamind) , BunZer0 (Sub FM) and Anthologic (Dubplate FM).
