Deep progressive duo metrONomes return to Progrez with the superb three tracker Domin.US. Their last outing came in the form of the wonderful Madam Butterfly which gained lots of attention. You can also catch the guys in action on Bonzai Basik Beats radioshow where they showcase their brand of progressive vibes with tight mixes. Always a pleasure to see these talented artists and we are sure to see much more in the months ahead.
First up is the title track Domin.US with its percussion led intro filled with snappy snares and crispy hats. The brightness is broken by a monster kick and a pounding bass that beats at your chest mercilessly. The tight arrangement brings a deep rhythmic groove that would be at home in a darkened club with the amps all the way up. Quite a minimal approach with a few layers being added as the track progresses, this makes for a truly dark experience that will definitely blow your mind, not to be missed.
Pussy Hat intros with a winding bass that fades in and out to the backdrop of an eerie soundscape filled with multiple textures. Crispy sharp hats are met with a big chunky kick that dominates the sound beautifully. A deep rooted bass begins to find its way through as it rises up from the depths. The break reveals more of that huge soundscape before we are thrust back to the main groove and those solid beats. A monstrous sound that have any system quaking in its boots.
Narcosis rounds up this fine package with its deep progressive offering. Tight beats and sharp percussive elements are shored up by a pulsing bass that gets the head nodding. A great drum arrangement gets the rhythm flowing nicely as deep low end frequencies begin to rise up. Top quality FX litter the sound adding cool textures throughout. An intensity is generated with the introduction of cool synths that are perfectly filtered in and come to prominence on the break. Superb stuff yet again from the guys and a definite must have.
