The entity behind Billain is back once more with another astonishing display of theatrical driven heavy Drum & Bass action starting out this new year with a bang. If you are a fan of heavy and technical D&B then at some point or another you probably have heard of Billain. A project drenched in blood, sweat and incredibly creative sound design for the past 10+ Years. He’s a sonic extraordinary and this weeks review in subject is no different.
Enslaved starts its tone with taught percussive elements arranged in a meticulously abstract fashion, its atmosphere bathed in rich sounds that could paint the neo-dystopian future clear as day. Enslaved winds up into a wrenching and curdled twist of bass before launching into the drop at mach 1. Blasting into the drop is a full assault of intrinsically layed drums and fills that dont let off the throttle for one nano second, a second layer of atmospherics come in before the break overwhelmingly soaking the tune in angelic choirs of the CS80 before winding up back up.
