Macabre Unit drops it 6th release on wax in the shape of the Grandeur EP.

Featuring input from members N Dread, Occult and Chapta alongside label boss Demon, this is a slice of low end pressure with creative ideas and a broad pallete of sound. ‘Grandeur’ is the twisted banger that has been doing serious dancefloor damage, expertly crafted by the N Dread who is often affectionately referred to as the ifrequency inspectori. It’s both dark and nasty and beautifully musical in equal measure, deep, alluring strings warming from the start striding forward with crisp snaps of percussion. Lush sub rises in before a brief calm anticipates something unexpected. Sub pulses, and a wickedly twisted synth rises and falls; worming into your consciousness, before glitching out and darting off into the distance, zipping above and beyond the marching drums.

Epic ‘Fate’ sees Chapta pair up with Demon for what is essentially a straight up screwface maker. Eerie noises, muted voices and filtered stabs and snarl raises uncertainty and fear; hard hitting percussion maintains forward momentum, broken up with attentive edits adding fearful intensity into a even sinister breakdown and punishing bass workout. Real macabre sound. Third up, Occult teams up with Demon on the intricate and haunting ‘Motive’. Snapping into a pulsing bottom end littered with futuristic filtered growls and bleeps, echoing out amongst some stomping percussion, drum edits add fluidity and variation as space age blips and effects catch your ear and pull you in deeper. Deep. [Surus]
