Artist: Hybris/Signs
Title: Carousel/Rotor
Format: Download Only (MP3 + Lossless)
Label: Plasma Audio
Rated: *****
Besides the remarkable quality of the sounds that I spoke about on the occasion of the introduction of some past releases of Plasma Audio, the direction that the Australian label by badman Safire is going to take becomes clearer and clearer, whenever you check the sonic seeders he decided to host in his expanding catalogue. The ninth plasmic detonation by the label got planned by two acknowledged names of the more "tech-hey" bulge of contemporary drum 'n' bass. My favourite tune of this release is the one by Czech producer Evan Vischi, better known as Hybris, whose treatment over visceral low frequencies, chopped vocals and wisely fragmented rhythmical patterns on "Carousel" could let you imagine a battle against a slimy robotic Gila monster; Toulouse-born trio Signs keeps on hit you hard by their distinctively futuristic declension of nNeurofunk on "Rotor", whose sudden sonic clattering over hyper-nervous breaks - for some strange reason - makes me think of the growling of an aggressive cat. Do not overgroom it.
