Brandon Miles and Tricky Pat – Sulpher EP review

Artist: Brandon Miles and Tricky Pat
Title: Sulphur EP
Label: Temper D Productions
Genre: Drum and Bass, Leftfield
Format: Digital
Buy From: Juno Download

Putting something a little different out there for D&B DJs, London spinner Temper D offers up this breathtaking EP from Brandon Miles and Tricky Pat. From Portland and Vermont respectively, these two have an innovative and refreshing take on the genre, a million miles away from the mountains of formulaic drum and bass.

As Temper himself says: “They can really have an amazing effect at parties, provided you mix out of them with something with a bit of energy”. If only all label bosses were so thoughtful. Lead track “Sulpher” has a stuttering Dubstep-styled beat with some awesome beatless sections for stunning mixouts.

“Pip Squeak” will again work wonders in sets, coming in with a half-tempo swing that doesn’t feel lazy but instead provides a classy way to switch up styles, with plenty of crescendos that are begging to be mixed out of. “Radio X” and “Sex In Slime” are two seriously dark and twisted tunes that the right DJ could deploy with huge effect. Having already been played by London Electricity, Doc Scott, Raiden and of course Temper D himself, these four tracks come seriously recommended.
