The name „Mefjus” is currently dealt like a code for awesomeness in the drum and bass scene. It seems like pretty much everyone has heard the word on the street –Mefjus is a prodigy of drum and bass that you cannot await for the next production to surface. And this time you can believe the hype, whatever discipline of drum and bass — Mefjus masters them all. Sound design and songwriting, originality and suspense — it´s all here.
Lead track „Double Tap” opens with a big movie score intro and rolls out with great drums after the drop. The bass stabs gave the track its name – two well-aimed shots are fired at the same target with very little time in between, in this case bass stabs shots that hit the dancefloor hard.
„Bilateral” on the flip has a more experimental rhythm making use of triplets a lot. Combined with fresh and unheard sounds this one is strictly for the heads. As the title suggests
„Dogs and Frogs” hints at the state of mind that music is made here, all for fun and not for study — or does it refer to the huge sounds that croak from the speakers? If you prefer dance to it like a dog and jump like a frog, in any case this one is another dancefloor sureshot straight from the jungle.
„Out of Scale” (Mefjus remix) is closing this ep with a bang. The orginal by Wintermute was released on Trust in Music sister label „Katakis”. The rework convinces with an original drumbeat, the trademark Mefjus “high pitched snare” and lots of switches — all built around this twisted winding lead sound that is known so well from the original.
