Zenith B & QBIG – Exiled Mind / Matador – Protect Audio
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.
