Catalyst.AD 'Off The Chain EP' CD"
Catalyst.AD is an artist who’s already been widely recognised by the drum & bass community through his ‘Coming Home’ EP. After receiving critical acclaim from Red Bull, his success was noted by his widening fan base. He’s now ready to unleash his ‘Off the Chain’ EP, a follow up which will once again reidentify you with the producers sounds.
From the beginning to the end, the ‘Off the Chain’ EP pulls you into a dancefloor orientated package which will surely have ravers ready to go back to the nightclubs. With a rework offered by DJ E, who’s spent nearly three decades working within the drum & bass world, especially within its darker trenches, his background at Rude FM and Kool London has enabled him to come under the radar of Conjunction Recordings.
The imprint set itself a path to deliver the most cutting edge underground bass music that the scene has to offer. Despite not being genre specific, the EP presented from Catalyst.AD gives an unforgiving insight into what the label has at its disposal. The title-track ‘Off the Chain’ is a dark, driving number which takes you through the motions as it ducks and dives between every layer of percussive texture. Next up comes the rework from DJ E, who revamps the selection through his own lens, giving it his own unique flavours. Following suit is ‘In the Shadows’, a growling piece of music which would stand pride of place within any DJ set. Then finalising the EP is ‘Law of the Jungle’, a record orchestrated through its punchy drum work and bass, whilst manifesting at a lower tempo. The EP demonstrates what Conjunction Recordings is about. Only providing the absolute best which their scope has in their reaches whilst presenting a brand-new label to the masses.
