And so the final piece of the Drums Of Death Waves Trilogy EP’s snaps into place, DoD caps his latest run of releases with 4 tracks of varied, taut, emboldened dance floor rhythms.
Set to solidify his new role as purveyor of heavy, club-focused music for the UK’s furtive underbelly, ‘Blue Waves’ sees Drums Of Death explore tough-built, kineticism on opener ‘Life In The Machine’, where classic electro rhythms oscillate around punchy, razored synth lines, before a masterclass in tension is played out across that breakdown. ‘Let No Shadow Fall Upon You’ reaches for the euphoria and is set for large scale rotation across this summer’s sweat-filled dance tents, with a chest-rattling bass line littered with chopped piano, early 90’s vocals and all round rave dramatics.
‘Transistor Rhythm’ sees Drums of Death enforce his knowledge of the UK’s new school house scene, as a subdued melody winds it’s way into the brain with ascending melodics and stepping kick that creates a dystopian ear worm that you’ll be hard fought to shake off. Final track ‘Waves City’ closes the Trilogy with images of hope and warmth from within a retro-futurist climate, as layered melodies and winding keys break loose from an epic bass drop that recalls Rolando’s classic ‘Knights Of The Jaguar’ with a 21stCentury twist. Receiving huge support in the clubs and on the radio from across the electronic music spectrum as Sinden, Skream, Tiga, Laurent Garnier and Claude VonStroke continue to reach for the Waves.
