Kantyze is maybe one of the fiercest dnb duo, consisting of Frederic Bauffe (Feubo) and Igor Denat (Knockoutz), who gave many innovative shakes to French dnb scene by adding to dnb typical doodads a weaponry of dark-techno-oriented primers. On this excellent digital EP, which will be officially released on 10th June, they strenghten their sound by enhancing both dynamics of rhythmical patterns and and grip of sounds. It's possible you will associate their combination of dark shading and hyper-hectic swirls to the sound of other projects such as Cern, The Upbeats, The Sect, Subtone, Stalker, Proktah and similar projects, but one of the distinguishing aspect of Kantyze sound is the fiendish focus on the insertion of psychotropic samples, futuristic roller and sometimes militant beats within their computational reticula. You will find four wicked tunes on this EP, which comes on their own m-Atome imprint, who all have the above-mentioned elements, even if according to my ear and neural response, the abysmal pits and the nervously stretched drum rolling of "Factory Slum" as well as the squishy bouncy "Fish Eye" deserve the purchase of this release by themselves.
