Hot on the heels of our last release from talented trio Creatures, Subtle Element touches down with his first solo EP for Infidelity, ‘Rotations EP’.
Following his personal exodus from Cornwall a few years back, Subtle Element has found himself amongst some of the best up and coming names on the Bristol D&B circuit, receiving support from some top level names including Noisia, Optiv & BTK, Foreign Concept, Xtrah, Nymfo, Bailey, Chris SU, Doc Scott, Fre4knc, Eastcolours, Volatile Cycle & many more.
He is also resident for promoter ‘Bristol Drum & Bass Events’, enabling him to appear on lineups for the likes of Dispatch Recordings, Shogun Audio, Neosignal & Metalheadz.
His unique brand of sub-low drum & bass has rightly earned placed him as one to watch right now.
The title track ‘Rotations’ propels us to another level in Subtle Element’s arsenal – employing an organic sounding groove-charged break, worthy of it’s namesake. The concurrent bassline is serious head-nod material, complete with clever LFO rate variations that complement the funky precedent already set by the impressive drum work.
Next up is ‘Clockwork’ – this truly is a sub-low roller in it’s purest form – gritty, dark and littered with stabs and pads eerie enough to send even the most ardent heads running for the hills. Don’t be fooled into thinking the evil undertones in this track are all it’s got, however, as it’s packing serious punch and dancefloor worthy grooves throughout.
Track three, ‘Disorder’, continues in the same vein as it’s predecessor, with autonomous sub throughout and super tight percussive elements – accompanied by his now trademark bass sounds.
Rounding off the EP is ‘Overkill’. A thunderous kick drum pattern ensues before we’re introduced to the star of the show – yeah, you guessed it, sub-bass. The producer’s dedication to the cause right across this project is clear for all to see, but no more than in this track.
Creatures present ‘Alchemical EP’, their second EP on Infidelity Records, the follow up to their well received 2015 debut, ‘Lost Gods EP’.
This four track offering epitomises the monumental, incremental steps taken by the young trio since their last EP, ‘Lost Gods’. Akin to the last time around, the lads have employed a theme across the release, encompassing the , EP title, track titles & artwork, which in-turn manifests it’s self in the style and tone of music.
The lads wholeheartedly demonstrate their eclectic abilities on each track here.
The EP opens up with guaranteed floor filler ‘Transmutation’, a heavy yet tasteful, Neurofunk roller – showcasing an astonishing abundance of dance floor groove and musical intellect.
‘Eclipse’ is up next – this deep, sub-low gem takes us down a few pegs to a murkier place, as we begin to learn about the individual ‘Alchemical’ elements that comprise this EP. Groove-laden
Track three, ‘The Crucible’, with it’s ferocious lead and smooth as you like sub, takes us back to a dance floor inspired place. Once again, we’re treated to a masterclass in modern Neuro – how it should be done.
‘Archive’, something a little different from what we have come to expect from Creatures – a very clear distinction between solid sub bass and the mid-high frequency ranges. This track rounds off the EP nicely as the fourth and final slice of Drum & Bass.
