Love & Light set a futuristic soundscape with an understated psi-fi excursion into Dubstep realms, the mood picks up quickly after that with Samples crunching bits with a glitchy banger take on the tune ‘Inertia’. On the deeper side Aligning Minds provides lushed out landscapes of dubby atmosphere set to rhythmic urban beats. Knight Riderz then pound out a Trap slammer that has already proven to get dancefloors bouncing. Dov then comes in with a Drum & Bass version of ‘Apex’ with reworked horns utilizing dancehall influences and then dropping into an epic wobbly bassline drop. Hypha rounds things off with a gorgeous tune that goes even further ‘out there’ with a tune or what could also fall into ‘Future-Bass’ , ‘Slowfast’ or ‘Juke’ genre descriptions. All in all a thorough journey through some of Bass Musics sub-genres.

ENA – Bilateral LP is released on @7evenrecordings on Ltd Digipack CD on 17th April 2013.
Tokyo, Japan: 2013. In a city where time and space can easily become uncontrollable factors, the underground electronic music scene has built its own culture and society for more than 30 years. Taking and incorporating influences from all over the world, the creations born from Japan’s underground continue to stay highly unique and maintain a clear sense of being deeply Japanese. ENA has been a multi-instrumentalist artist, studio engineer, DJ and producer for more than a decade now. The author of three acclaimed 12” releases over the past three years on the 7even Recordings imprint, his rare output has always impressed by the uniqueness of his sound and the high level of studio technique in his production. ENA has been tying the old to the new by blending diverse influences such as Dub music, early Drum & Bass, Dubstep, Techno and Abstract Hip Hop. He’s gained support from major players such as Surgeon, Laurent Garnier, A Made Up Sound, Pangaea, Goth-Trad and Peverelist to name but a few.
This first full-length album, “Bilateral”, is a visionary piece of music emerging from the studio of a very unique creator. Uncompromising, the 12 original tracks which compose “Bilateral” are the soundtrack of today’s Tokyo underground, the sound of a city of light and obscurity, stability and disequilibrium, stagnancy and full speed, the past, the present and the future. Press play and enter the world of one of the most creative composers of this generation.

2012 has seen them gain the support of an impressive list of DJs and, with a number of respected labels now sitting up and taking notice, the boys seem to be manoeuvring into position to take the scene by storm
Santura is the sound of Fearful getting out of the wrong side of bed, grumpy and brooding. A bear with a sore head plods determinedly through a forest of chunky drum breaks, wrapped in a duvet of stomach-churning sub-bass before waking up during the breakdown to deliver a tantalisingly glitchy finish. This track has already caught the ear of Amoss and Renegade Hardware’s DJ Nyx
Gorilla shows a different side to Fearful, in the form of an outrageously gritty, groovy stepper which has picked up DJ support from the likes of Amoss, Phil Hustle, Cursa and Philth.
For Bass Commands first release they turn to exclusive artist Drone.
Hailing from Melbourne Australia it’s a big surprise to hear this is Drone’s debut release. He is sure to be a hit and tipped as a future star by many on the DnB scene. All we can say so far is this is going to be the first of many releases from this producer.
Already with radio airplay across various worldwide stations and growing hype with the online community the title track Membrane has already received great reactions from the likes of Hype, Krust and EBK.
Membrane is a smooth deep thinking tune with subtle synth stabs and a beautifully crafted rumbling bass, with progression that has been described as nothing short of quality. One for the Liquid and Intelligent scenes for sure.
Drone follows the title track with Answered Prayers another intelligent piece that that flows big time with a relentless bass that keeps giving and giving. This tune certainly sucks you in and spits you out the other side.
In addition to the original of Membrane comes the X-ecute remix. Set to counter the relaxed chilled vibes of the original X-ecute brings his unique style of tuff as fuck beats in a not quite Crossbreed not quite Breakcore but definitely hardcore sounding stomping remix. One for the raves for certain. X-ecute has been smashing the airwaves with his resident show on Dutch radio Gabber Fm and this remix fits the hard edge sound perfectly.
