Burial Soil Records
TBR: 28th May for Vinyl and 11th June for Digital
This Burial Soil debut for Adrien d'Elzius features a double A release and a double B remix side from two like-minded artists. Brain Surgery is intended to throw listeners into a full-on trip through massive 'scapes and heavy atmosphere. A nod to the rave scene, with plenty of depth that only quality headphones can deliver, these four tracks slot neatly into the collection.
It opens with a scattering of zaps and futuristic sounds. Then, a quick and heavy rhythm is laid out on snare, bass, and more rhythmic zaps. Melody begins to create a distortion of fizz and frequency as various notes are manifested from the machinery. The rhythm pounds with a hyper-velocity sensation that pulls you in. Spacial sound-effects soar and scrape in the periphery as the rampant drums continue to smash down the tempo. Brnsrgry is a massive track that shifts and turns around chicanes of pure sonic topography.
Rumbling bass coils and curls around a snare driven tempo. Bass thrusts in ripples of sensation before a new wave of cymbals are added to the mix. These ride in like a wave which caries effervescent synths which bubble up and harmonise before sinking briefly back. The bobbing oscillations create an uplift that is only anchored by the persistently deep throb-bass. Submarine sounds warp and flow across the beat as drag-currents prevent us from leaving the dance-floor. Toxic Flood brings on the sludge and heavy pressure while letting us glide protected in a bubble of sound.
Umwelt takes the reins for a remix of Toxic Flood. It begins on huge widenings of scrape and gear that crawl into the stereo. Then, a quick bass and snare smashes in. The slow meandering of machinery continues as a vocal sample is allowed to become percussion. A quick marching and intense tempo matches the slower and dreamy under-sound that carries like passing breezes. The next remix is by Lloyd Stellar. The dripping bass is given dominance as the track begins. It seeps with gooey tone as rattling snares and kick rummage under a covering of shade. Warbling synthesiser chants a territorial melody from branches of drum that reach with quick paced micro-beats.
