Prolix, back at it again with the… quality drum and bass? Anyways, Prolix has just dropped his double-sided EP featuring “Nature of Reality” and “Sycophant” on Shogun Audio. It’s actually a bit surprising, considering the effort Prolix has been putting into his own imprint (Trendkill), to see Prolix release music on Shogun Audio. I love it either way, and “Nature of Reality” packs the usual punch we’ve all come to expect from Prolix. I particularly love the horn-packed intro. Nothing hooks me like a drum and bass track with a good intro, and “Nature of Reality” is a perfect example. What follows the intro is a little bit like Audio meets Current Value. Heavily compressed bass dances to jump-up style drums, with eerie synths layered on top to add an end-of-the-world vibe. That vibe continues to build and the high-range synths only get more shrill, finally climaxing with a particularly ridiculous patch pitching endlessly upwards. Overall I really like “Nature of Reality” and I would expect it to really go off live.
I give the track a 7/10
