DFA005: Voima – Epiprocta / Apoplexy
With DJ support from Maztek, Jade and Bowsar, Polish producer Voima presents his first single on Austrian drum & bass label Deep Field Audio, who with their fifth release continue to make a name for themselves in the field of forward-thinking bass music.
The virtual A-side Epiprocta commences with some uplifting soundscapes before luscious drums and gnarly bass take over for the proper rolling main part. Total sub engulfment, floor bombardment, break madness, you name it. The flip Apoplexy starts with a bitter-sweet mixture of tension and harmony as subtle chimes engage in melancholic melodies and an overall sombre atmosphere dwells underneath. Needless to say that this is just the dramatic foreplay to the no nonsense neurofunk that is about to follow on the other half of this massive debut.
