Andy C’s Program imprint continues to be a hotbed for pushing the deeper, darker side of the drum & bass genre. While the mothership Ram Records imprint has evolved into the more upfront and commercial side of the genre, Program seems to nurture the kind of tech-driven underground sound that the imprint and the genre were originally founded on.
Who better to cap off the first 40 releases of the imprint than the Serbian producer on the come up known as Subview? With a pair of tunes that harken back to the glory days of renegade warehouse parties, Subview channels his impressive skills into crafting eerie soundscapes crackling with a kind of urgent intensity right from the start.
While “Gold Rush” brings on the heavy-metal thunder sure to have the heads jumping, “Your Choice” takes things a bit deeper with a more powerful and subtle menacing vibe breaking through. The suffocating, haunting atmosphere sets the tone from the get-go as the vocal stabs and lurching percussive elements pave the way for a crunchy mid-range bite that’s sure to leave a metallic grit in the air as the electricity pops and arcs from the speaker to your dome.
It’s underground illness at its very best and one that will have both the OG speaker-freaker and new-school shuffler riding that bassline all the way through to the very end. Out now worldwide via Program so cop yours here.
