Rising from the storied depths comes Nemy, a fiery producer notorious for his unique and highly creative brand of drum and bass. With releases on a wide range of distinctive labels including Context Audio, Counterpoint Recordings, RAM Records, and Delta9 Recordings, he never fails to deliver intricately crafted tunes that stretch the limits of the mind while shaking the body to its core. His latest release, Quire/Armbar, comes via Vandal Records – a label with an astonishingly diverse array of forward thinking artists – and results in a heady combination with lethal results.

“Quire” begins with deep atmospherics slowly creeping up in intensity, until the rolling rhythm charges in and grabs you with unrelenting force. Fading off momentarily, a perfectly timed vocal sample initiates the monstrous drop. This launches the song into a potent frenzy, with layers of murky bass growls and futuristic stabs of FX creating an unfathomable landscape of sound that is fearsome in it’s intensity. This is a tune you will obsess over, time and time again.

Blasting off from the very start, “Armbar” charges forward with a ferociously crafted beat. As the low end slowly rises, the song subtly increases in energy until the sub slides in with razor sharp precision. The hypnotic groove of the song overtakes the senses completely, with the high speed shuffle of the hat section melding with the scattered buzz of FX that give the song its sinister vibe. As each layer ebbs and flows, it reveals an endless depth of precisely sculpted sounds.
