Antagonist - Vortex (clip) - Vortex EP NBR004 - Released 25th November by Nurtured Beatz Recordings published on 2013/10/21 19:42:56 +0000 Antagonist, an artist from Manchester, creates music comprised of the distinctive brilliance we’ve come to associate with the cities drum and bass circuit. Frequently playing nights across the country, alongside some of the scenes finest, it’s evident he does damage on the decks! We’ve had a few tasters of what Antagonist is capable of in the studio, his weighty presence on the recent Gravis EP generating an abundance of hype, and this time we’re treated to a full 4 track EP. Opener Vortex sets the precedent, delving into dark territory there’s an undercurrent of Blue Note 90’s influence channelled throughout the EP. Sideways is a tune of eerie, industrial vibes; and whilst System Failure continues this, abrasive synths pry in and out of the tune, contorting the body and mind. Next up Gutter, the dark and militant nature of this tune contributing to an EP that whether listened to at home or in the dance will take no prisoners… Watch out, big things to come from Antagonist!
