Eastern Promise Audio


Eastern Promise Audio is proud to present the latest Dam Nation EP which is nothing short of a little work of art. After meticulous studying and especially listening to the feel and sound of old spy movies and plays, the Dam Nation crew created a series of drum ’n bass pieces which attempted to blend the atmosphere of shadows, dark alleys, and cigarette smoke with creeping jungle sounds. The result just has to be heard to be understood.

Imagine yourself walking through dark, rainy streets at night with the feeling someone is spying on you, and this might be only a first hint at how the sound of the Double Agent EP can be described. It also tries to convey the smoky atmosphere of sleazy bars, gambling parlors, femme fatales, and long raincoats. Stepping aside from their usual sound,
Dam Nation has created a unique work of art that captures these scenes in this unique EP.

The Spy EP opens with Mulholland Bound, which literally puts the needle on wax and after starting with a friendly bar atmosphere, the track suddenly flips to a mysterious sound of vibes, organs, and clarinets against pulsating dub rhythms, oozing towards a silence only broken by a heartbeat and harrowing clarinets. Double basses and ruff hitting rhythms then take up the track. The dark atmosphere gets completed by stabbing warp basses, invoking increasing feelings of paranoia.

Next track in line is a special remix from Logikz and Reactor Grits, who remixed the track Poker Acing twice (the first one can be found on the EPA website for free), and crafted a skillful piece of enigmatic vibes and flutes against jazzy double bass sounds with minimal but forceful breaks. With the sudden interruption by a classic solo which can be only said to be both light and dark, the track pulls the listener more and more into the Spy EP’s web of mystery.

Stage 3 brings us to A Routine Check, which opens with raindrops and a band playing dark melodies through muted trumpets, vibes, and brushes, the EP builds up towards a rougher edge where dub and brass stabs are intertwined with rolling breaks and ear caressing strings.

With many mysterious effects and subtle percussion, the EP rolls on to the last and most haunting track, On Their Tail. Creeping bells and rotary speaker-driven Hammonds play a dissonant sound which signal for a dark finale. Soon the breaks start hitting at their hardest while double bass sounds play harrowing dark jazz patterns over screaming brass stabs. A classical intermission seems to soften the ride, but a raw bass tour de force interrupts this and grabs the listener once more unexpectedly. Ultimately though,
Dam Nation doesn’t shy away of concluding with some warm bossa only for you, to end this EP on a lighter tip.

After the massive success of EPA’s last Rumbleton EP, the holidays are here and Eastern Promise
Audio decided to do something special for the fans; the new and first Dam Nation EP entitled
Deeper Heights will be available for free… that is, the choice to donate is up to you!

It is that time of the year when everybody tries get nicer, warmer, and fatter. A good time for us
to think about all of you, who have been supporting us over the last year by listening, dropping,
twisting, buying and hopefully enjoying the releases. The Eastern Promise Audio crew has therefore
prepared a nice and fat gift for all our loyal headz out there. In the form of… you guessed it,
more beats. In this exclusive FREE release (although donations are always welcome of course),
the production force Dam Nation have put together a special showcase consisting of 3 tracks in 3
different styles.

The first track is entitled “Dam Nation Anthem”, and introduces the Dam Nation crew and EP in
rough and craftily switched hip-hop style. Expect the unexpected; from rough and highly compressed
beats to catchy marching pianos and brassy horns, it’s all present and scratched and sometimes
reversed to boot. If you’re a lover of dark, jazzy breaks and this won’t make your head move, we
wonder what will.

As we roll on to the next track, “Deeper Heights” slipstreams into Dam Nation’s unique and dissonant
approach to drum and bass. The basslines are mangled squashed and stretched; they seem to drag
you through Dam Nation’s trademark sharp breaks while the sonic soundscape around it gets filled
up with sequences of madness and confusion. Accompanied by hard hitting brass stabs and a wide
spectrum of strange percussion, this is cold and dark drum ‘n bass just like the holidays.

The final track, “Into The Water”, ends the showcase by submerging the listener into a twisted
bubbling and throbbing ambient madness. Sit down in comfort, close your eyes, and you will soon
feel yourself in a strange world that only you can envision for a full five minutes. Follow the current
to the end of this track and you might never see the light again.

All an all, the Deeper Heights EP captures the capabilities of Dam Nation’s unique experimental
modernism and their skill in applying it to a varied spectrum of styles.

This release is downloadable through our Bandcamp store from December the 22nd 2012. This
is a FREE or “name your price” download. Our number of free download slots will be large but
not unlimited so watch this space for further updates on when it goes live to secure your copy!

Eastern Promise Audio’s second EP and 6th release is all centered on Toronto-based producer Rumbleton, who after several outstanding releases has been hailed under the label’s flag.
This time the connection stretches from Toronto to London back to Amsterdam,
where EPA residents Double O and Phuture-T have both contributed remixes of Rumbleton’s tracks to make this release one of the most forceful yet!

With this release Eastern Promise Audio celebrates their first anniversary, which needed to be done in style.
The cold days are upon us again which call for some cold, dark sounds to go along.
Rumbletons tracks Lion Structure and Panther Fist where the perfect choice.
To push the envelope even further the release will also feature exclusive remixes by Double O and Phuture-T.
The result is a menacing half hour of both tribal and oriental vibes blended through the original Eastern Promise recipe.

The Tracks:

A: Rumbleton – Lion Structure

” The EP’s title track Lion Structure is all about affirming Rumbleton’s skills to contribute to Eastern Promise Audio.
Opening with deep nyabinghi sounds and reggae vibes in a halfstep beat, the tune opens as a walk through a dark piece of jungle in the inner lands of Jamaica, with dub sirens amplifying the vibe.
It then erupts into a collision of dub vibes and mashing jungle breaks.”

B: Rumbleton – Lion Structure (Double O Remix)

” Both it’s spiritual and philosophical character have been perfectly taken into consideration when Double O did the remix of the track on the flipside,
where lays down breaks over the tune’s vibes as only he can put them down. More twisted but just as exalted as the original, it has to be heard to be believed.”

C: Rumbleton – Panther Fist

” The rasta vibes make way for more oriental ones on the next plate. Rumbleton opens up his second track Panther Fist with cold, mysterious pads and kung fu vibes against a palette of various jungle breaks hitting the ears like gunfire.
The drums rain down and slide past you as if choreographed by Shaolin monks, while deep rolling bass stabs bring back that distinct oldskool feel that completes the track’s timeless fusion.”

D: Rumbleton – Panther Fist (Phuture-T Remix)

” Phuture-T then closes the EP as only he can do it, by remixing Panther Fist into one of the most dangerous examples of raw drumfunk that EPA has offered so far.
While holding the original track in high regard, he goes one step beyond by blending hard hitting stabs and creepy effects into a dark canvas of stampede while breathing the original’s martial arts;
ending the EPA 1 year celebration EP with a blast.”

Eastern Promise Audio EPA06 is be for sale now exclusively from Bandcamp,
and will be available on Juno Download and Digital-Tunes from November 11th, 2012.

Dub Of The Living Dead, the second EP from Dubmonger is available now, exclusively from the Dubmonger Shop on Bandcamp.

This 6 track EP sees the Dubmonger in a much more minimal setting, letting the mixing desk manipulation and effects take the spotlight.

These are some tracks that feature on the EP:

” Mountain Dub rises like the morning sun over gentle atmospherics and a subtle locomotive-esque percussion that chugs along, projecting a serene aura of warm vibes to lift your spirits. ”

” The Dubmonger continues the zen-like vibes on a more up-beat note with Crumble where the bass swings and sways along to reverberated congas and titbits of dissipating piano keys, dubbed to infinity. ”

” Version 2 is an energetic fusion of dancehall styles and downtempo grooves. Dubmonger craftily furthers this union, blending sub tones with a bubbling natty bassline and plucked guitar dubs for a live-feel. ”
