D_iolax – Inferno – High Resistance [HIRE027]


It’s my pleasure to introduce another banging release from the ever more amazing High Resistance.  This time from a producer who I hadn’t heard of before by the name of D_iolax.  The artwork on this one is sick, like a demon rising from the fiery pits of hell, coming to get you, you know this one is going to be a heavy ride!

The title track ‘Inferno’ starts gently but mood bearing with a filtered drum beat over a hi-hat with some deep brewing reece bass creeping up on you.  The drop is an utter neuro smasher with that reece punishing you for turning the headphones up too loud, the off beat snare smacking you left and right as it eventually calms down before the breakdown but maintains that energy which you’ve become accustomed to previously.  The moodiness presents itself again in the breakdown and leads you to the second drop, which picks up the pace again with even more going on to destroy your ear drums.  Warning, ear protection will be a must hearing this played in a club and the sound engineer will be crying at the amount of red lines on his mixing desk. 

The flip side of this release is ‘Abandon’ which is proper scary on the intro, sending chills down your spine but leads you nicely up to the drop which is an absolute stepper.  You could be forgiven just switching this on the drop to change the pace of the dance floor with a heavy rolling neuro track.  The next set of bars picks the tempo up a bit with some additional percussion therefore increasing the speed of your dance moves.  The second drop brings that head nodding vibe back which will give you a neck ache after a while it’s that fat.  What a tune, I love my tear out neuro tracks but personally prefer this one on the release as it shows some real dimension!

Looking forward to hearing more heat from this artist.  Go get the release this Friday (16th July 2021) on the link below:





About Author

Absolute D&B nut! Love any type of Drum & Bass really but Neuro is my main passion. I got into D&B back in around 2004 where I started going raving, I then discovered heavier D&B in the form of Renegade Hardware nights in London which I attended almost every one for several years. Having developed my listening style with how the music has evolved I love the freshest tunes as well as the old ones! I've been mixing for fun since around 2005 and just love playing in front of people and sharing the music with likeminded people.
