Species - Promo 2010
Breakcore, IDM Species is the work of a young man from Berlin, who contacted me via a promotional advertisement I placed on the internet. It labels itself as club/IDM/Drum & Bass (A fact that quite frankly terrifies me, as I seldom listen to any of those three - and when I do, I certainly don't call myself an expert).

That being said, I recognise the difference between noise, and shite. This release certainly isn't shit. It is a 6 track Promotional Demo - the first track I stumbled upon ("Dr.Gravity") is without any doubt a good choice for an introduction to this project. It has that Edgy sound, which in my opinion makes D'n'B a listenable genre. The frantic beats and sampling combine to make a really good track to drink/get high too.

"Eye Open" isn't bad either - The track sounds like chaos at a Train Station, and I love it. "SUNday" is another stand out track here, and at this point, I really should stress how impressed I am with the production and sound quality of this demo. Everything about this has been packaged, encoded, and presented professionally, and if I didn't know the status of this promo, I'd assume it was a big label release.

I hate promos where the first tracks are great, then the rest just suck, but I don't think this is going to be one of them. It echoes Lpf12, and at times, The Flux Komplex, while also borrowing influences from Aphex Twin, and Enduser, but remarkably, retains its own unique sound.

Not a shit track to be heard, and potential all over this. A welcome addition to my collection, great project, good label.
