DNB badman ESKR is in the spotlight this week, rolling out bangers left and right with recent releases on Boomslang Recordings, GTA and a load of free downloads across the board. ESKR is bringing it back home to Boomslang this week with a four track smacker of an EP, ‘Terraform’. Let’s get right into this release and be sure to read on for more from ESKR including those free downloads and some super sic DJ mixes!
A barrage of beats kicks things up quick as snappy snares and bouncy basslines warm up the build. “Drop It” flawlessly unfolds with smooth, rolling basslines that keep the composition kicking with clever drum breaks that punch between soft fills and sleek effects popping through the mix. Drop this one in your set and see the floor explode in a furious dance!
Next up “Terraform” delivers aggressive beats bang forcefully winding up to the drop with bottomless basslines and exuberant energy that can’t be missed. The drop unfolds into a chunky composition with expert use of broken beats flowing full and wild with ample effects to whip and switch the motion of the track with ease. ESKR always delivers the thickest tracks full of endless energy to get the floor moving and grooving and “Terraform” is no exception to that rule!
The build howls to life on “Specter” the highs twisting through as the rhythm begins to rise reaching for the drop. Colorful beat patterns unfold twisting and bending the narrative of this track with a unique break all its own as groaning basslines provide a steady, eerie vibe. Harrowing effects tie it all together as “Specter” from ESKR is a bone chilling display of drum and bass.
Tension grips the build as hair raising highs tick through wound with serious synths and barbaric beats rushing furiously toward the drop. “Burst” explodes into a technically funky tune that chops and rolls with hard, clean kicks and unearthly undertones. The dirty bassline winds and womps through the measures while the broken beats flip and fold taking control in the mix to seize the floor in a solid groove.
