Eastern Promise Audio releases


The fifth release from Eastern Promise Audio brings the sounds of Dutch DJ and producer Splinter, who after various releases makes his debut on the label
with some of the darkest sounds it has yet to offer.
The two tracks presented on the 5th release of the label, Elder and Dominion,
are bothworks where dark ambiance is intertwined with both raw and minimal breaks.

The two tracks have for long been reserved by the label as Splinter’s debut, since the two tracks
presented on the release were regarded as some of the most outstanding material that Splinter has
produced yet over the years. They also suit the label’s sound it tries to seek perfectly; dark, oriental
sounds meet raw drum ‘n bass once again in the Eastern Promise fashion.

Elder is without a doubt a dark trip as much as one can go wrong; deep percussion hits and oozing high passed beats signal a storm of sheer magnitude,
as raw breaks start filling the spectrum and winds blaze in the background.
It subsides into a collision where psychedelic, acidized sounds roll over deep bass stabs and tearing leads,
while snares cut through it literally sounding as knifes cutting through.
It has got to be heard to understand, since one can only envision their own world of what dark vibes this track is able to conjure. ”

” After this very much dark ride, the B-side of EPA 05 brings a more minimal and controlled sound with Dominion,
where the still present dark vibe is brought differently through more playful, techstep oriented breaks with a minimal approach.
Rather than evoking a kind of fear as Elder did, Splinter is able to make the dark vibes swinging here, even sexy.
This makes Dominion a track that essentially belongs to the dancefloor, as it apart from its futuristic, dark vibes, was made to make the body move. ”

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 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.”

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.”

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. ”
