Hungarian born producer and composer Insect Society debuts on Basiks with this stunning three track EP entitled “Really Insane. Insect society has been addicted to music since the early nineties and he took to composing in the 2000’s. He started off using computer software with VST’s for his productions but quickly moved over to hardware to get that much richer sound. Very exciting times ahead with this guy as his talents begin to shine.
First up is “16 Hours”, high octane driven tech with that raw analogue sound you get from hardware. Strong chunky kick and a sub bass provide the intro with cool sweeping buzz effects and the percussions gradually building the rhythm. The bass goes through many transformations with some quality filtering, the synths are contrasted with warm lush stabs to tough and gritty arps, very well constructed track!
“Really Insane” intros with a monster kick and bass combi overlayed with a host of FX. This guy really shows how to get the best out of his synths with a multi layered sequence of true electronic sounds. This track continues to build and culminates with a simply amazing acid type lead that seems to go on and on. Solid grooving track that will have any bass bin pushed to the limit, epic stuff.
“Stunned Brain” finishes this EP with a much darker edged track. Another solid groove with acid lines, sweeping chunky basses and eerie pads all rolled into one full on techno experience. The rhythms are expertly crafted with crisp hats and percussions held together by a strong kick. A serious contender for the pure techno jocks cases!
