London low-ender, Daze Prism is back once again with some deep, driving magic. This time via a three-track EP for Four40 Records—and if the title tune, “Shipwreck,” is any indication, this is one beastly release.
Keeping things gritty and oceanic, Daze goes mid-tempo here, to really let the soundscape churn. Slipping in under a hard filter, the rhythms gradually unfurl with a sneeringly wicked rolling bassline. This in only emphasized by bad-man vocals, which give way to a body-moving breakbeat.
“Shipwreck” is the kind of track that keeps things so cold, it burns with an intense fury. Moving classic UK sounds towards a modern direction, this number can grab a hold of old and new heads alike, and put them to work. Minimal and spacious in execution, all of the right pieces fall into such a satisfying place. Anyone on the dancefloor when this drops should expect at least one rewind.
“I wanted to make a back to basics breaks tune for ‘Shipwreck,’” he tells Insomniac. “Raw drums paired with a pulsating heavy bassline. To add to the maritime theme, I added some samples of creaking wood, moving water and metallic percussion to extenuate the feeling of a shipwreck!”
Available now via Four40 Records.
