about

Eastern Promise Audio is assiduously continuing its quest with the third release of their brand, which will bring more of the sounds of the Dam Nation crew, who brought the label´s first release. This time the crew brings an ambiance blended of horror and mystery, together with their unique brand of breaks to full potential with EPA03, featuring the tracks Dante´s Theorem and Effigy.

” The 5-headed production force opens EPA03 on the A-side with Dante´s Theorem, which indeed was inspired by his writings from the Divine Comedy. The artists tried to translate the book´s atmosphere, resulting in a both light and dark sounds surrounded by mystery; opening up with icy pads and percussion, the tune slowly progresses into a firm dance floor stepper with deep bass stabs while retaining its hellish atmosphere. As with most of Dam Nation´s tunes, it keeps on progressing as if telling a story, like in Dante´s spiritual journey. Switching between layers of serenity and sudden horror, this track draws sharp contrasts and tries to bring a different structure to pay homage to both Dante and Russian director Tarkovsky.”

” EPA´s third release stays in a spiritual realm when it continues on the B-side with Effigy. It seemingly presents a soft atmosphere full of subtle percussion and raindrops, but already from the onset of the drums tells that this trip is also not going to be as light as previously felt. It tries to symbolize both the fear and peace that depictions of death bring in its sound by bringing no rigid definition of light or dark; They are brought together in harmony to demonstrate a serenity that is neither happy nor sad. Both tribal percussion and vocals accompany the sound to emphasize this experience, whilst heavy subs roll over a blend of drumfunk and oldschool jungle breaks.”
