"Assassin" I applaud the duo in their ability to neatly stitch together a sound you don't know that will kill you. The synth varations are chopped nicely and have been arranged tightly creating a hitter that moves alot through bends and pans while at the same time maintaining a stringent sense of order.
Thanks to labels like Play Me and producers like Gein-- Gangsta Drum & Bass will never die! The Explicit EP features three tracks from Gein & Blaqcix. "Definition" is some hardcore junglism for the street. Undoubtedly staying true to its name this track is for the OGs on a nostalgic kick. Serious break sequences define the masterpiece and in addition to some heavy kick and snare patterns the immortal Eazy motherfuckin' E and a few other niggaz wit attitudes intensify the atmosphere by thuggin' through the cut and threaten justifiable homicides.
Fucking Fairy! - Halo Nova If the other two tracks didn't kill you then this maniac will emerge from the shadows and stick your brain in the grinder.The fucking fairy is a demon carried by synth that may lead to motion sickness nonetheless it adds character to the nauseating combination of muffled bells and snaps that build and culminate to hit you right in the gut. Unbeknownst is the aftermath of the impact on your core in which the sounds quickly attacks your nervous system and hemorrhages your brain. Blame the rupture on Ultragore! Dark and evil bwahahah!
“Being in the moment, with music, staying fresh is about understanding what people are going to want to dance to tomorrow,” is a statement of promise from the Fresh Young Minds which is quantified by any of the 8 tracks available to download for FREE!. The first notable standout is an original production carried by an energizing and instantly classic Bay Area dictation. "Blossom Hill" is a track that demands listeners to get straight up hyphy with it. This song supplies a fantastically blended simple but deeply crunk drum pattern with a well sequenced mixture of mildly distorted gangsta synth leads and chime driving 8 bit highs. Definitely a banger!
Another tune that grabs it from the get is their remix of Helicopter Showdown's "Get Tuff [(Skulltrane & Fresh Young Minds RMX)" This tune is a product that speaks truth with a catchy hook that surfaces through intricately staggered combinations of synthesizers. Acute automation adjustments strengthen the glitchy stabs and prove that a correctly placed seemingly minor detail drastically increases the quality of synth builds in successful layered constructions.
These forward thinking artists are definitely on a mission.“In the Bay Area, the dancers are ahead of the curve. You have to keep up with the people, and that’s what being a fresh young mind is all about." Thematically staying ahead of whats next to come is something the Fresh Young Minds do well. In addition to the gratuitously abundant selection of newly released compositions these emerging artists are also tossin' out a solid hour of slammers recorded for J'aime Le Dubstep.

"Get Out" is a bouncy electro screamer that step wise definitely carves a more driving and energetic jump style path. "Phonic" turns subtle wobbling drops into a wicked bass mash that methodically puts the hype on the floor. The track displays his talent medling in dirty builds and skillful bends.The EP closes up with a smoothed out leaner titled "Hellbur."
