As the Russian drum and bass scene continues to expand its influence across the globe, those in the know continue to dig deep in search of those underground vibes outside the scope of the usual heavy-hitters. Check the latest from the Russian imprint, Citate Forms.
Featuring a pair of iron-fisted rollers from the Germany-based Psychic Pressure, the futuristic sci-fi tinged vibe that Marius Faschingbauer is kicking are perfect for those late-night outings under the autumnal stars. With releases on imprints ranging from Skankandbass to Blendits, Subplate Recordings, and Tsunami Bass Weight, Marius flexes on the dark and deadly tip for Citate Forms.
While “Synchronize” brings on a strychnine-laced dopamine rush, the synapse-twisting “Skydive” is our go-to on this release. Easing into things with a slow build, the crystalline layers at the core come together one beat at a time. As the fractured edges of the piece begin to dissolve and shimmering details cascade their way through the otherworldly center, “Skydive” transforms the casual listening experience into an intense introspective ride.
Whether you’re looking to get lost in your earbuds or roll this one out for the squad on the dancefloor, the release is out now so stream/download your copy here.
