The Cenobites (Kompressah and Doja) have been doing the world over with their tech-driven sound for over a decade. With releases that span the globe, including a wicked remix of Pish Posh’s “Beneath the Surface”, singles on Jae Kennedy‘s Koldfront Recordings, Flex Recordings (alongside Knoxz of Kryteria), and Multikill Recordings; a forthcoming album on Mindocracy, and extended players on Flex and Schedule One. Collaborations with the likes of 6BLOCC, Pish Posh, SST & Glitch, Dave Owen, Nightbreed, and DJ Sage; amongst a monster list of other accolades to name – the Cenobites come proper on E-Sassin’s Sound Sphere imprint to lay down a collaboration of mass creation alongside the label owner himself – Affliction EP.
Koinos is one furious smasher – amens and drum switch-ups lace the tune alongside sinister sounds, neuro squelches and horror-esque soundscapes. Stepping alongside the man himself, Affliction has more of a tearout vibe, also showcasing E-Sassin’s classic techstep sounds. Remember Symptom? Yea, like that. The bassline rolls deep on this one. Pure filth. Lastly, Doja and Kompressah step up to remix E-Sassin’s 2014 release, Bacterium. Easily suitable to open up a set and demolish a dancefloor, The Cenobites use melody to pull on the heart strings before the sample drops. Neuro heads will love this one. Driving straight to the bass bins, gritty bass is bound to tear the floor apart. The second drop carries a more half time feel that pulls the bass like kneading dough.
Straight up fire in the Sound Sphere camp.
