Annoying Fear

by Dailiv



The digital catalogue of Absys Records becomes extended by yet another amazing release. Our new addition is an Ep entitled “Annoying Fear”, brought to you straight from Saint Petersburg, Russia. The man behind it is an upcoming producer named Ilich Davidenko also known as Dailiv. Chances are you’ve heard his music in mixes by Droax or Red Army, but his musical and personal background seems to be still just as mysterious as the Ep itself. “Annoying Fear” opens with a track entitled “Cult” – a dark and brooding light-drummed half-stepper infused heavily with tribal and oriental influences. The story continues with “Annoying Fear”, which lends its name to the title of the Ep; this is where you’ll notice a much stronger focus on percussion programming, the effect of which is a punchy, dynamic drum-line, accompanied by a booming and growling bassline. Next stop is the dark and deadly “Boucan”; this is most likely what a drum & bass battle anthem of the Horde from the World of Warcraft would sound like – if they had one. The Ep closes with “Strain” – a heavily-synthesized regularly-rhythmed stepper abounding with intriguing details looming out of every single layer. A must-listen for all those into the deeper and darker side of contemporary drum & bass.
