Our Wednesday selection:
Brotherhood of the Wolf – Pack Mentality (Distrackt Records, DR00.00.17)
Pack Mentality is the debut EP from Distrackt label heads Brotherhood of the Wolf. Having curated the Distrackt sound since its inception the Irish boys recently debut- ed their production skills with their excellent remix of Angelo Currao’s Sinister Dance.
Pack Mentality sees the duo formally introduce themselves via a four-track effort that showcases a sound inspired by Detroit and influenced by the Dublin underground scene.
A1. Tank Man: Acid melodies ride a wave of percussion throughout. Layered synths and vocal splashes sit atop of a heavy kick and driving bassline while a metallic drone maintains the intense atmospheric feel of Tank Man.
A2. Dispatch: A deep groovy bassline and polyrhythmic drums set the tone. Synth stabs and perc splash’s add depth and character. Vocal fx’s and melodies add the glue that holds Dispatch together.
B1. Wuhanian Spicy Nightwings (Original Mix): Layered rumbling bassline, haunted strings and acid melodies characterize Wuhanian Spicy Nightwings. Deep pad sounds take the lead and the chanting vocal adds to the driving undertone.
B2. Wuhanian Spicy Nightwings (Brotherhood of the Wolf – Jeff’s Obsession Edit): Brotherhood of the Wolf re-works Wuhanian Spicy Nightwings into a distorted dub version of its original form. Jeff’s obsession edit offers more hypnotic rhythmic soundscapes than the original more aggressive cut.
