Scout 22 – Anti Life EP [Brainrave Music]
Welcome once again my drum and bass friends! Today we share the latest and first release by Brainrave Music in 2024! Scout 22 – Anti Life EP [Brainrave Music] is on its way. A strong release by Scout 22 and Brainrave Music ensures they start the year as they mean to go on
in what could be a big year for Neurofunk. Brainrave Music are steadily proving themselves a force to be reckoned with amongst Neurofunk
drum and bass circles. And they show no signs of slowing down with a heater of an EP. Following releases by the likes of NEMY, Kenney, Rico. And let’s not their thumping Cortex Chronicles Volume One album. Brainrave Music have had a very solid year in 2023. What mayhem will they bring in 2024?
Keeping the momentum rolling heavily is none other than Scout 22. Providing a thunderous piece of art. Featuring four pulverizing tracks. Anti Life is sure to be a go to for many selectors. Prone cause ructions within USB drives and on the dance floor all over the continent. With projects spanning across many electronic genres, Matt perfected his craft through lock-down. And since then has proven to be an extremely busy and skilled producer. Previous releases with Eatbrain, Program, Dispatch and his own label Shadownet respectively display Scout 22’s passion. He’s got heaviness oozing through his veins. A promising journey lays ahead for this rapidly growing and talented producer.
The title track of the EP is a mind-bending way to kick off proceedings. With an introduction full of sharp slaps and a voice to send shivers down many a spine. It perfectly builds to a drop of distorted sounds that are greatly gruesome. Deep and low basslines accompanied by occasional snappy sirens. Then on into blasting Neuro breaks. And a continuing build through the breakdown lead us up to choppy synths that cut through the mix like a scalpel on Dr Cortex’ operating table.
More enchantingly melodic in the earlier stages and building up into a sword slashing scream. This track drops with softer snares and a low distorted bass line to put a fierce frown on any dance floor dweller. The breakdown brings melodies accompanied by harmonic chants all while building up to a face melting second drop filled with darkness and rampaging snares.
An intro with a jazz piano sound, an occasional bass tease and breaks in between. This melodic build up drops into a heavy bass line to make your jaw clench. Sprinkled with tings and clapping snares before a breakdown, this track is sure to make smiles in front of the speakers.
Building up with mind racing string melodies and progressive rolling drums. This final track of the EP drops into thunderous body jolting bass lines. Simmering into a breakdown of choppy strings before returning with an almighty bang.
This EP is set to release this Friday the 16th! Pre-save and pre-order here for Spotify and Beatport!
