When news went out that PhaseOne had been exclusively signed to Disciple, we knew it was only a matter of time until the imprint unleashed a heavyweight release to celebrate the occasion. Enter the monster five-track Origins EP that already has those in the know thumping their chests and letting out a rebel yell.
While the Australian producer has surfaced on the imprint for a number of years, most notably winning a Virtual Riot remix competition for the imprint in 2014, this EP is sure to not only solidify his position within the Disciple fam but level up his own status as a big bass beast not to be fucked with.
With the title of the EP no doubt referring back to his musical roots, the merging of metal and bass come together in a powerful way throughout, most notably on those cuts that the Australian metalcore band In Hearts Wake make their presence felt in the form of rugged vocal drops and hardcore riffs.
For a taste of what PhaseOne and In Hearts Wake are bringing to the table in collab mode, check the exclusive premiere of the face-shredding “Welcome To Mayhem” cut below. From the well-placed ragga vocal stab to the heavy metal roar that announces the drop, it’s obvious that PhaseOne ain’t holding nothing back as he goes straight for the jugular. Sure to have all the neck-snappers up on the rails begging for more, check the technique and hold tight for the full EP, set to drop on January 16.
