Hungarian drum & bass producer MVRK muscles his way onto Hybris’s Pseudoscience Recordings imprint, which releases a record not put together by its head honcho for the first time.
Dots by MVRK is the third release, and the first not to come from Hybris – and the label boss has explained the reasoning behind his decision. He said: “When I started Pseudoscience, I wasn’t in a rush to sign other artists, as I only want to release music that I feel absolutely confident about, and I’m a picky bastard.
“But upon first listen to Voyage (on my phone speaker) I told MVRK to lock it down, and the rest of the EP soon followed. MVRK is an exceptional talent from Budapest, who perfectly represents the Pseudoscience sound, and I’m extremely proud to present his debut EP on the label.“
Broadly speaking Dots is a neurofunk workout, but the sheer variety of sounds and arrangements warrants its own genre tag – ‘Voyage’ is sheer chaos, punishing synths running amok over erratic drum hits, while ‘Energizer’ retains the neuro muscle over a madly swung beat.
The title track rips over razor-sharp percussion and the record closes on the nuclear soundscape of ‘Ghost Circuit’, a borderline terrifying track dripping in atmospheric pads and menacing bass.
