Datr3ndz – Dead Rising [Red Light Records]

by | Jan 15, 2016 | Tunes

I won’t lie to you, I’ve never heard of Datr3ndz before.  As I scanned the new releases this Monday, my eye–as per usual–was drawn to the ridiculously evil album artwork that Red Light Records consistently puts out (seriously, whoever does artwork for Red Light Records is a madman, and I completely love all his sketches).  I have a lot of respect for the label head-honcho, Optiv, and I typically listen to all RLR releases. I was instantly drawn in by the intro to “Dead Rising” thanks to its ominous vocal samples and atmosphere.  It’s an extremely short intro, and that’s fine, the drop and everything that follows completely makes up for it.  Juicy high-range synths dance on top of a groovy drum line, with terrifying SFX and more vocal samples maintaining the apocalyptic atmosphere.  The song doesn’t really change much after the drop, and while I would like to see more variation, I think the spectacular production quality and unique synthwork allow the track to stand on its own.

Overall I give “Dead Rising” a 7/10 and consider it to be a valuable track for every drum and bass DJ to own.
