PH42E – Hivemind EP

Catalogue nr:  SKLTR025

Release date: 30-04-2021
We’re very proud to bring you PH42E’s debut solo release on Skalator Music, stunning roller four tracker, packed with grit and vibes that we can expect from one of the members of the prolific production duo that is Neurotoxin. For this EP, PH42E brings in every ounce of his production skills and taste, delivering one of his best works to date on our label.

“Zen” is a straight roller affair, fuelled by menacing stabs, "droney" atmospherics and mangled percussion hits. Trademark sounds by PH42E in this tune, presenting a slab of pure dance floor groove packed with the kind of raw energy and funk that we love in drum and bass.

“Silesa” takes us on a different tip but still keeping the vibe at a rapid pace, with the rolling drums and smart percussion edits taking the centre stage, backed by a ominous sub bass, this track is reminiscent of the fast tech vibes from the early 2000’s. The eerie vocals and smart FX complete the bass packed smasher.

“Gunrun” is PH42E smoking gun tune from this EP. Rolling percussion, tight breakbeat patterns and fast paced sub bass make way for the unsettling railing vibe that brings this track to the forefront of any dance floor. One of our personal favourites here in the camp.

“Hivemind” drops us in deeper territory. This two-stepper morphs dreamy pads into danger zone synth lines, before descending into moody cavernous stabs, and alarm like reece droned synth. It’s a beautiful landscape evocative roller still packed with the punch that makes this release a true showcase of PH42E artist vision.
