INVSB005 Press Release:
NickBee, or Nikolai Bogomolov to his friends, has been the staple diet of discerning drum & bass fans the world over for some time now. Having already released a steady stream of
deep, dark and disturbingly good tracks, this Ukrainian producer is ready to show just why the likes of Ed Rush & Optical, The Upbeats and Invisible label owners Noisia have been jumping on his sound.

His EP for Invisible offers a range of moods and flavours. The opening expanses of ‘Discovery’, the first of two tracks produced with fellow-Ukrainian Sunchase, lead you in gently offering muted bass sounds and juddering sound FX. ‘Mangup’ also features Sunchase, and here the pair take you deep into an epic off-world experience. Chanting vocals are offset with sharp breakbeats and digital crunches of bass that create an inevitable and irresistible tension.

Sides C and D see Nickbee team up with Malk. Firstly the duo deliver the sci-fi horror of ‘Alien’, a track that’s deserving to share the title of Ridley Scott’s intensely chilling film of the same name, followed by the hauntingly beautiful ‘Cosmos’, another perfectly put together piece of drum & bass that sticks two futuristic fingers up at the usual dance floor fodder.
