DISPROVE steps up to the sleek and understated BNKR division of METHLAB RECORDINGS, delivering an impactful and concise statement with his OPPRESSION EP. Disprove is an established producer with a number of releases behind him on a variety of highly regarded labels that have seen him unleash a diverse selection of highly polished tracks with his unique flavor and varying approach to beat structures and sound design. With the 5 tracks of the Oppression EP, he brings his full and accomplished technique to bear on ruthlessly stripped audio carried on towering bass in a vast sound field, punctuated by immaculately pointed percussion.
The wide airy bass of ORIGIN opens the EP in a bleak tech vibe true to the series, with the low frequencies infiltrated by exquisitely designed sonic microelements before breaking into ascendant arpeggios. Title track OPPRESSION rides on tightly wound anger, with its restrained reese precisely lashing at its sides. WHEN I SEE YOU fidgets deliciously, restlessly shifting on a driven shuffle against an uncomfortable but beautifully looping vocal. THE DAMNED pairs Disprove with the uniquely menacing vocal line of MC HIJAK conjuring a paranoid vision of a desolate infernal landscape pushed on an immense tidal bass wall. AUTOLYSE completes the EP on an tense and frenetic tip, with its fast flowing breaks scattering rapidly around dense impactful sub.
With the fourth release of their BNKR series, the award-winning MethLab Recordings unleash a powerful array of tracks from Italian producer Disprove. Usually known for his fierce and heavy output, the Oppression EP sees Disprove explore a deeper side of his sound, with 5 tracks pushing at the very fringes of minimal but forceful drum & bass.
