Forthcoming on Formation Records from Fabric8 is the ‘Sneaka EP’ flowing with four very diverse tunes full of drum and bass flavor. One half of the production duo Cemtek, this time around Fabric8 is supplying these slick solo selections to showcase his diversity in artistry, each track unique from the last sure to impress even the toughest critics. Let’s take a look at what’s in store when the ‘Sneaka EP’ drops the 9th of November.
“Acid Jungle” kicks off with soft atmospherics leading into heavy amens that consume the build. Old school flavor with a modern twist Fabric8 is pulling out all the stops as we dive deep into a brutal concoction of severely broken beats intensely crashing between grinding basslines and wicked jungle samples bringing the big, bold and heavy breaks to the mix. Sure to drop some jaws and fill the floor “Acid Jungle” will secure a spot in the set lists for sure.
Slipping into a softer selection “Put Me Through” leads in with a smooth rhythm over silky keys welcoming the serenity of a masculine vocal to shine through. Carrying through to compliment the drop the vocal rides rhythmic and harmonic cradling the vibe over deep flowing basslines and intelligent intricacy on the beat patterning to hit the heart strings hard. Mastering the manipulation of the foghorn sound listen closely for the deep breaths of bass breaking in strategically placed to bring excitement to the mix.
The title track from the EP “Sneaka” echoes in on the highs riding with a soft vocalization. A groovy rhythm comes to life as the strings pluck in supporting the repetition of the vocal through the build. Deep bass rolls stretching and carrying the soft serenity of the vocalization becoming one with the rhythm and creating a colorful contrast with the dirty basslines and complex jungle influence on the drum fills. Variance in the drum pattern provides interest in the blend and the sly second drop is purely devious, deserving “Sneaka” an extended mix.
“Hide and Seek” leads in with a soft beat quickly snapping into the verse featuring Rival Technique that builds furiously to the drop. Deep foghorn basslines growl, dark and dirty, rolling as fiercely as the hook as Rival Technique flows with fiery intensity. The vocals peek in and out through the broken beat as the bassline takes center stage climbing and falling with an interesting variance in placement and design for a unique spin.
