Formed back in 2011, the Chroma crew crashed onto the scene right from the start, with essential tracks on Hardware, ProgRam, Commercial Suicide, and their very own Coded label. Subsequent releases have blown speakers and minds in equal measure, and now the Newcastle lads are back with the follow up to their debut Hardware release: Machine which featured on the heavyweight Limber EP. Brain Strain meanwhile creates its atmosphere early on, with overarching synths establishing themselves, as colliding breaks sit waiting to release. Dubby, echoing bass paths are also thrown into the mix, and the drop is mighty. Dirty and grimey are the orders of the day on Brain Strain, as the producers let their imaginations fly and lead them into new areas. They take you deep down into the grubby underworld of drum & bass, with hints of early Icicle vibes.
