Phuture-T opens with Ominous Maze giving equal space to breaks and a bass assembled from an overdriven contrabass clarinet. Excerpts of piano, sax, and inharmonic tones are worked around filtered out drums and change-ups.
Earl Grey brings the series back to Drum and Bass staples like Soul Pride, Amen, Think, and bright atmospheric vibes. This playful end is energetic and the breaks are heavily chopped letting sub fill in.

Martsman takes on a sample collage from Cordani and Nic TVG. Field recordings are granulated into rhythmic droning pads while the main drums have a distant feel to them like a recording from a live event. Harmony is filtered in as long notes which transition into a play on repetition.
Snaper's Pod, from his solo EP Grey Line, emphasizes a rhythmic bassline loud in the mix and a light break with shuffles or slightly quieter snares filling the down beats.
Nic TVG's 09_13_2012 (Vinyl Take) has been updated with steadier intro and long outro. The digital version has been freshly re-mastered by Macc.

Bonus Downloads (from A Third Sun EP):
The intro of Dave Hoax's Man from Another Planet starts with a sustained note and a muted Soul Pride break before releasing into layered breaks. The bass falls downwards, sound effects swell and fade into the background, and percussion is added on wide stereo channels.
The main break in Dam Nation's The Third Man has a bizarre timbre where snares mimic loose metal sticks. Samples, recordings, and percussion are dense making an uncomfortable tone especially with a repeating orchestral swell.

Pinecone Moonshine Portland, Oregon

Run by Nic TVG, Pinecone Moonshine is a collection of Drumfunk (drum and bass) and other abstract and ambient music.

See the neocities link below for the demo policy.

Majority of the tracks are melancholy collages of noise, heavily processed samples, and atmospherics driven by broken break beats and heavy sub. Free jazz, early electronics, blues, and funk are noticeable influences.
