In this early summer of 2014 Eastern Promise Audio celebrates, as their 10th release is a fact. A challenge for the label to come up with a release noteworthy of its number and by staying in line with the quality of the former nine releases as well. After a long time and many considerations, the jungle kings Phuture-T and Double O were chosen to share the space on the ‘Turbulence EP’, which can safely be described as a landmark for the label which both reflects the last three years of Eastern Promise Audio and assures its future, kicking like a mule.

Both Phuture-T and Double O need no introduction to the label, as well as to drum ‘n bass in general. Double O helped shape Eastern Promise Audio’s sound in its early days with the now legendary ‘Why are we here? EP’ and is currently expanding his skills and tastes through his own amazing Rupture label. Phuture-T, as both a member of Dam Nation and having done several remixes on EPA from both Rumbleton and Acid_Lab, is no newbie to them as well, and has expanded his list of releases recently through labels such as Alphacut Records. For EPA’s 10th release, both the dark and dubby flavored releases from the label were taken as a starting point, to ultimately take it to a crucial point of dreamy, sinister atmospheres and some raw, menacing jungle as shown before.

The opening track is by no means a track meant for warming up towards the rest; Turbulence by Phuture-T is an extreme example of taking the simple ingredients of drum and bass and expressing nothing but havoc. Pizzicato strings play a haunting repeating melody whilst detuned pads resembling flight sounds are warning that you have taken off and the flight is going to be all but comfortable. Being underlined when a hard as nails hitting break determines the initial sound, the track moves towards its center point of darkness when a sudden rolling sub actually simulates a raw, turbulent feeling in one’s gut meant to do what it does best; shake you down as hard as possible. Phuture-T is in the cockpit, making you having a not too pleasant but unforgettable flight.

Things get seemingly toned down afterwards for the time being, where Phuture-T after the landing brings you Worlds Awakening; oozing, mysterious pads envision a world of wonder and novelty, but soon fading in raw breaks and deep subs quickly remind you that the atmosphere of the previous flight is still present. Accompanied by fierce ravey stabs, a refined blend of drumfunk trickery with breaks fighting a constant battle of contrasting, mirroring, and blending enrolls where dark leads growl and roll around the spectrum.
Double O then picks up the pace from the last track with his own remix from World Awakening, which is nothing short of a jungle masterpiece as the pure junglists knows him. Giving a slightly more dark twist to the track, his awakening certainly has a gloomier feeling, but gives a breaks tour de force which could raise an eyebrow of even the more hardcore jungle heads around.

The EP concludes with Phuture-T remixing a storming track from Double O, where reggae legend I-Roy helps you pick up the pace of a fine mix between dubwise sounds, thumping breakworks and deep rolling basslines, cooperating in a hypnotizing fashion which is only broken by some raw mashing amen interims to bring a gradual change of pace to the initial groove. By this point it will have become clear that the tone set from the start of the EP is being kept up both skillful and mercilessly.

And if this wasn’t all enough, a bonus track of the ‘Warrior VIP mix’ from the Phuture-T remix of ‘Iroy Lion’ will be obtainable on Bandcamp only when purchasing the whole EP. This mix gives the last tune a fresh rewind with a raw twist daring you to make some more moves; that is if you didn’t get enough stampede already. It’s up to you now to find out; in the meantime, EPA shall roll on towards new ventures…
Eastern Promise Audio EPA10 is for sale online from Bandcamp exclusively. Digital-Tunes and Juno Download will follow in a few months.

EASTERN PROMISE DREAMS DARKLY WHEN MEETING ASYMMETRIC

The ninth release of Eastern Promise Audio travels to the northeast this time, where it meets Asymmetric with two haunting tracks of mystery, industrialism, and blood chilling sounds. Indeed, this mid-winter release brings the coldness when this Russian artist debuts with the single Antibodies and the VIP mix of Nightmares, two tracks of sharp-edged drumfunk madness and evil soundscapes, proving his asset to the label.

Asymmetric has already released his debut album two years ago plus various singles, and requires no introduction to the underground lovers of dark jungle. It therefore only seemed a matter of time before the mutual vision between him and Eastern Promise Audio of drum ‘n bass music connected, and resulted in a single of uttermost drumfunk and modern jungle finesse, albeit by mood and atmosphere not targeted for the faint-hearted. This single was made for the mid-winter moment, for this date of release, and is an aural interpretation of science and dreams gone haywire.

The A-side track Antibodies opens with a fading soundscape, like something is waking up in a strange place. Deep bass stabs then enforce this eerie vibe and set the tone for the single’s atmosphere, when out of nowhere a storm of crazy drumfunk rhythms, which are morphing and switching endlessly, twitching if you like, start to support the stabs and bring the track to its onset. The break works seem to embody a crazy chase through a dark and unknown landscape, which is supported by evolving mysterious pads and dissonant piano chords. The chase seems slowed down by both the bass stabs and heavy atmosphere, as if they’re pressuring it; it creates an effect which could embody a battle between antibodies and antigens. Of course, this is only a scientific interpretation of the track, and those that open their ears to it know that there is a lot more to envision that could embody the sound.

Things are taken into a new direction on the B-side with the VIP mix of Nightmares, where high passed amen breaks start to ooze and morph in under support of soundscapes both expressing glares of light, but overall are hinting at places of cold and evil. This pattern starts to narrate itself slowly when the breaks fully hit in a full jungle tour de force of oozing breaks and lukewarm falling bass works where suspense is felt through the whole ride; it is leading to a climax of what the track itself holds by its name and has to be heard, better yet felt, to justify itself. As a passage through the underworld, the perceived anguish seems without end, when the track unexpectedly plunges its listener back in its jungle fashion where the sound keeps on evolving in its breaks and soundscape, bringing the listener slowly and, hopefully, safely back to the real world where the immersion of the nightmare felt will sure be lingering for an uncertain amount of time to come.

A side: Dam Nation – Mescaline

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

” EPA’s first release (EPA01) will feature the Dam Nation tracks Mescaline on the A-side, and Under Dementia on the flip. The Dam Nation production crew consists of no less than five members, including Phuture-T, Splinter, Logikz, Reactor Grits, and Drome.
The first track is, as the name suggests, an epic trip which can be neither described as either light or dark, as it ambiguously encompasses both; through many stages expressed through classic jungle breaks and deep soaring basslines, the songs progress in a spiritual way through classic gamelan sounds, whispers and soundscapes which are unpredictable and mysterious.
As a heavy trip can be essentially indescribable through words, Dam Nation crew has tried doing it through sound, that must be heard to convince. ”

B side: Dam Nation – Under Dementia

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

” They continue their dark ride through the B-side with Under Dementia; more minimal but equally complex in drum patterning, the song opens with traditional Japanese vocals, subtle percussion and mysterious horn sounds, where a soundscape gradually starts opening up to draw the listener into its atmosphere. Once the bass stabs for the first time, the tune falls into its heavy form and reveals its skin of dazzling sounds which fill the audio spectrum and keep on coming out of unexpected corners. Again it makes no difference between a pure light and dark side (although it’s leaning to the latter), and even though less divided into stages then a trip in Mescaline, it is just as epic, dark, and mysterious. ”

After introducing itself with the sounds of Dam Nation, digital drum ‘n bass label Eastern Promise Audio is set for a very special second release; an EP featuring the sounds of London-based dnb pioneer Double O.
Already being played out by numerous DJ’s worldwide, this release has been anticipated for a long time and will perpetuate EPA’s quest for bringing dark and atmospheric drum ‘n bass that refreshes both the ears and soul.
Double O has been rising on the scene as one of the most promising artists in the world of drum ‘n bass today, bringing the more jungle-oriented rhythms which he combines with both dark ambiance and dub-oriented vibes.
Besides releasing on various labels since the early jungle days, he and his Rupture crew have been doing their own radio show together with DJ/producer Mantra on Jungletrain, and have thrown down their own raves for the last five years in central London where the dark side of the jungle still can be found.
After EPA got introduced to his sounds, it has been awaiting to release the Why Are We Here? EP for years until it was ready to launch, and is proud to now finally do so.

The Tracks:

” All four tracks included in the EP conform to EPA’s sound of epic, atmospheric drum ‘n bass. The A-side and title track of the EP ‘Why Are We Here?’ opens up with cold jungle rhythms quickly sliding into mysterious soundscapes that evoke an icy dream state, before colliding into a dark but beautiful ride accompanied by mashing amens and deep subs. This is followed by a deep dub-influenced jungle roller on the flip side called Version From Creation, which combines the former style with industrial sounds and pads against a heavy drum ‘n bass collision. ”

“Moving on to the second plate, Drani’s Horror ain’t nothing too short of being what it says on the tin; opening up in an atmosphere of dark sounds and fearful whispering, jungle breaks soon pull up the cart to the point of departure where a madness is portrayed further through a heavy drumfunk sound and rumbling bassline that keep on morphing further into a dark void. After this chiller, the EP concludes with Stop Dem Jah, where Double O’s reggae influences pulls you a bit more towards the surface of the light again. That being said, this track has by no means been freed yet of the cold ride that the EP has told so far, and concludes it in ambiguity with raw jungle breaks, hovering sounds, and hard-hitting dub stabs. All in all, we hope that this release certainly won’t be the last that Double O has to offer on EPA, and that it will show you what this man is about.”

EASTERN PROMISE BRINGS MORE HAUNTING MYSTERY FROM THE DAM NATION CREW



Eastern Promise Audio is assiduously continuing its quest with the third release of their brand, which will bring more of the sounds of the Dam Nation crew, who brought the label´s first release.
This time the crew brings an ambiance blended of horror and mystery, together with their unique brand of breaks to full potential with EPA03, featuring the tracks Dante´s Theorem and Effigy.

” The 5-headed production force opens EPA03 on the A-side with Dante´s Theorem, which indeed was inspired by his writings from the Divine Comedy.
The artists tried to translate the book´s atmosphere, resulting in a both light and dark sounds surrounded by mystery; opening up with icy pads and percussion,
the tune slowly progresses into a firm dance floor stepper with deep bass stabs while retaining its hellish atmosphere.
As with most of Dam Nation´s tunes, it keeps on progressing as if telling a story, like in Dante´s spiritual journey.
Switching between layers of serenity and sudden horror, this track draws sharp contrasts and tries to bring a different structure to pay homage to both Dante and Russian director Tarkovsky.”

” EPA´s third release stays in a spiritual realm when it continues on the B-side with Effigy. It seemingly presents a soft atmosphere full of subtle percussion and raindrops,
but already from the onset of the drums tells that this trip is also not going to be as light as previously felt.
It tries to symbolize both the fear and peace that depictions of death bring in its sound by bringing no rigid definition of light or dark;
They are brought together in harmony to demonstrate a serenity that is neither happy nor sad.
Both tribal percussion and vocals accompany the sound to emphasize this experience, whilst heavy subs roll over a blend of drumfunk and oldschool jungle breaks.”

Eastern Promise Audio EPA03 is for sale on Bandcamp, Juno Download, Digital-Tunes, and Chemical Records.

Eastern Promise Audio is proud to present its fourth release featuring the sounds of upcoming and superb Dutch producer Infest,
who has proven himself already for some time to be a new main force in the drum ‘n bass scene.
For EPA however, he has created two very atmospheric and subliminal works which fit the label’s profile of mystery, darkness, and beauty.
Being already played widely by DJ’s for some time now, EPA04 has been anticipated for a long time.

” Infest starts his quest of bringing the EPA sound on the A-side with Angoona, which breathes nothing but an array of beauty and wonder through shining pads and saxophones tearing to set the mood. Heavy artillery however accompanies this theme when heavy amen breaks guaranteeing a mad ride which both show this song to be intelligent and dark at the same time. No matter how this song will be viewed, it shall reveal itself both as a firm dancefloor stepper and spiritual caressing for the ears.”

” The intelligent mood subsides for quite a bit on the B-side, where oozing, windy synths introduce a much darker landscape which prepares for a storm. Mindless is indeed a unique blend of eerie, mysterious sounds against a background of raw drumfunk and rolling basses that will press on your stomach for quite a bit. The sun which still seemed present on the flipside is gone, and now darkness surrounds the final installment of Infest’s introduction on the EPA label, which is however making
sure he goes out as he came in; with a blast.”

Eastern Promise Audio EPA04 is for sale online from Bandcamp, Juno Download, Digital-Tunes, and Chemical Records.

EASTERN PROMISE AUDIO WELCOMES BABYLON FALLING BY ACID LAB

Eastern Promise Audio comes through with yet another EP, this time bringing the sounds of the already well known German drum ‘n bass producer Acid Lab, who has already established himself with a number of noteworthy releases on various labels. For his debut EP ‘Babylon Falling’ on the EPA brand, three of his tracks encapsulating the label’s sound perfectly were crafted to start up the ride, with a storming remix by Phuture-T of one of the tracks to finish it off.

As was shown on Double O’s ‘Why Are We Here?’ EP (EPA02), reggae vibes and dark drum ‘n bass sounds can mix flawlessly. Acid Lab shows once again that this sound can be maintained on the latest EPA release, where a minimal but hard hitting jungle sound was chosen to blend with dark dub vibes and ambient, mysterious sound schemes. The result is a 4-track EP which fits right in the expanding Eastern Promise catalogue.

The A-side is entitled ‘Babylon’, where a steady break and chirping birds make it a rather uplifting start of the EP when ambient pads start to rise and chanting vocals seem to bring Jamaican heat into your ears, until the breakdown bring a sudden drop with dissonant stabs and a deep bassline that is accompanied by grinding amens. Entrancing pads keep rolling under the spectacle to make it define the theme of this EP.

The B-side ‘Jah’ is a masterclass session in the power of hard hitting hoover leads and modest but smashing basslines effortlessly blending with a wild texture of amen and mule breaks. Dissonant strings interchange the sections of the track with cold winds and dub effects as it is signaling the upcoming winter. As the tune carries on, the chilling sounds will make you shiver just as much as the drum ‘n bass vibe will move you.

Finally, the last two tracks go hand in hand, as the C-track ‘Retribution’ is accompanied by its own remix on the D-side. The former opens with deep hitting drum stabs and pads resembling a cold wind as in the previous track, while dubbed drum effects and rolling breaks work towards a quite sudden breakdown of mashing breaks and gnarling, creepy bass sounds. Its stepping vibe however, makes it modest but raw hitting nonetheless. Phuture-T’s take on this track finally, keeps up the vibe of the original in terms of atmosphere, but adds more desolating sounds to the palette and brings an all-out jungle ode to the mule break which can be only described as merciless. It can be safely mentioned that it is a thundering conclusion to an EP for accompanying the cold days that lie ahead of us.
