Eastcolors - Heavy Tone by Demand Records published on 2012/04/23 09:38:34 +0000 Vladivostok lad Eastcolors is probably most well-known within the DnB community for his mixes and for his collaborations with Enei and Nuage. As far as modern drum and bass is concerned Eastcolors is at the forefront of that techy, fresh sound emanating from Eastern Europe and Russia. With this in mind then, it’s clear that while his tunes fuse well with his fellow Russian drum and bass cohorts, Eastcolors is making a departure from collabs. What better way to celebrate Demand’s tenth release then, with Eastcolors settings about placing his name upfront and alone with his first ever solo 12”. On the flip “Heavy Tone” rumbles forth with a typically Eastcolors take on what a roller should be. Lenzman-esque synths and strange, celestial vocals are quickly worked over by an electrical storm of droning bass and pads. As the synths return to break up the clouds here and there, “Heavy Tone” loses the idea of becoming another lost bass-heavy roller and settles into being a multi-layered piece of quality drum and bass.
