Q BIG & Zenith – Exiled Mind / Matador


New drum and bass on Protect Audio. Exiled Mind is bassy but restrained. The drums drive this along with regular pauses for added tension. Almost too restrained. Matador is the better track with a crisp spring to its step. There’s a balance between the darkness of the bass and the skittering beats.

If you want more, here’s a mix on Protect Audio from Shiver:

Protect Audio return with with their tenth release, a deep 2014 opener showcasing the sound of QBIG & Zenith B. ‘Exiled Mind’ and ‘Matador’ bring a release of percussive dexterity and bassline finesse; a winter essential for the early morning rave.

Liquid maestro QBIG makes an appearance on this high-production valued record by mixing his daintily rolling basslines with Zenith B’s dark allure. What’s great about this record is the that you expect it to roll out one way, but the building crescendo of malevolent drums and wavering pitches pulls it in a completely different direction.

This duo has definitely twisted minimalism into foreboding percussion and breaks which will leave you guessing. Don’t expect a track full of pretension as the producers have been too busy creating a record that’s structure is as impervious as its sound.
