It’s the welcome return of Task Horizon, long hailed for their ability to drop deadly tech-driven thrillers on the dancefloor worldwide. Like renegade rebels on a distant moon who have been sharpening their skills and preparing their plan of attack, Task Horizon come roaring out of the shadows not only with fresh tunes and a reinvigorated energy but with a relaunch of their Evolution Chamber imprint.
Having transformed from a Swiss duo into a quartet, the heavyweight sound of Task Horizon seems to have taken an anabolic boost as well. Take the sci-fi driven “Rogue Transmission” that blazes its way through the outer reaches of the universe, expertly piloting the listener through the jagged edges of an ever-evolving soundscape.
Still, it’s the bit we’re premiering below, “Forbidden Planet,” that showcases all that the crew is bringing to the table. An epic cinematic intro paves the way for a brain-rattling drop that serves as a kind of primal call to arms. The filthy wall of synth-bass brings on the alien shivers before a stepping beat extends the breakdown to the point of no return. Just when you think the tension can’t hold, Task Horizon hit the switch and let the beat proper comes crushing in.
It’s a massive look that’s not only rewind-worthy material but sure to put Task Horizon back in the bags of all the battle-hardened tech-warriors out there looking for a return to their glory days. This one drops tomorrow as a Beatport and Spotify exclusive before hitting the rest of the known universe on December 15 so lock yours in here and don’t say you weren’t warned.
