Subsphere Review of Muffler / Nebula (DFA004)
"Double Helix’s newest single propels him straight into the champions league of forward-thinking drum & bass."from Subsphere.net
While his previous release on Deep Field Audio made me elevate him into the premier league of Neurofunk, Austrian producer Double Helix’s newest single propels him straight into the champions league of forward-thinking drum & bass. Again, Noisia and Phace flow strong in his youngest masterpiece Muffler, but if the almighty Stagger comes to mind it’s not because of its too close relativity but merely because it’s the only other tune that operates on such an elevated ground of information, breaks and bass. Deep and dense is the motto for the flipside too; and –being the ‘lighter’ of the two- the first-class roller Nebula with its thick low end and uplifting mid-term harmonies is just what’s needed after one is being blown out of Muffler’s ridiculously intense field. Indeed, if Double Helix continues to deliver tunes such as these it’s gonna get real tight at the top. Miss at your own peril!
