After the massive success of EPA’s last Rumbleton EP, the holidays are here and Eastern Promise Audio decided to do something special for the fans;
the new and first Dam Nation EP entitled
Deeper Heights will be available for free… that is, the choice to donate is up to you!
It is that time of the year when everybody tries get nicer, warmer, and fatter. A good time for us to think about all of you, who have been supporting us over the last year by listening, dropping,
twisting, buying and hopefully enjoying the releases. The Eastern Promise Audio crew has therefore prepared a nice and fat gift for all our loyal headz out there. In the form of... you guessed it, more beats. In this exclusive FREE release (although donations are always welcome of course), the production force Dam Nation have put together a special showcase consisting of 3 tracks in 3
The first track is entitled “Dam Nation Anthem”, and introduces the Dam Nation crew and EP in rough and craftily switched hip-hop style. Expect the unexpected; from rough and highly compressed beats to catchy marching pianos and brassy horns, it’s all present and scratched and sometimes reversed to boot. If you’re a lover of dark, jazzy breaks and this won’t make your head move, we
wonder what will.
As we roll on to the next track, “Deeper Heights” slipstreams into Dam Nation’s unique and dissonant approach to drum and bass. The basslines are mangled squashed and stretched; they seem to drag you through Dam Nation’s trademark sharp breaks while the sonic soundscape around it gets filled up with sequences of madness and confusion. Accompanied by hard hitting brass stabs and a wide spectrum of strange percussion, this is cold and dark drum ‘n bass just like the holidays.
The final track, “Into The Water”, ends the showcase by submerging the listener into a twisted bubbling and throbbing ambient madness. Sit down in comfort, close your eyes, and you will soon feel yourself in a strange world that only you can envision for a full five minutes. Follow the current to the end of this track and you might never see the light again.
