Rated: *****
On the cover artwork of release number 40 by renowned label by Caine, which is hotly marking time and keeping abreast with the interesting stylistical niche of dark minimal drum'n'bass, there's a printed tyrannosaurus, but on the face of the persistent and fast beat rolling of the six amazing tracks on it, it could be some hybrid between that ravenous ginormous lizard and a velociraptor indeed. There's a constant sense of rush and escape from a threatening predator over this release, whose emphasis by the talented producers involved in this EP conveys a suspenseful tone. After the extremely basic hitting, anxious ticking and cavernous echoes of the initial title-track by St.Petersburg-based producers Andy Pain and Z Connection, a sinister murmur, frenzied tablas and grimy laser shooting on Fade's "Tribal Dancer" relocate the pursuing scene into an imaginary jungle. The wiry neurotech and the rhythmical stretches on sci-fi ghastly sonorities of "Lost & Found" by Kuantum, the clobbering catchy beats on "Fissure" by Mono, the reprise of tribal style by means of disquieting reverberations, slanting wicked pressure and infectious bass hits on the gorgeous "Achime" by Hungarian producer Giocator, the relentless ride which got deceptively masked by floating flutes of the final "Course" by talnted Ukrainian producer Disept quicken the break. "Hunted" definitively sounds like a prehistoric sonic adventure rendered by futuristic sounds, which overlaps to current wild crazy civilization, whose dynamic pressure is sometimes more monstrous than sharp chops of a giant-sized reptile.
