about

Profane’s Guardian immediately starts into the main melody and rhythm with a filtered bass synth. Additional percussion elements both synthetic and sampled build on the central idea morphing between sparse and dense layering. Staying true to Profane’s sound, hints of funk samples are dropped throughout the piece.

Iceberg 74 is broken soul music with a clangy, aggressive drum break falling on top of looped guitar samples and quick excerpts of soulful singing. In the second half, the bass starts reinforcing the rhythm bringing up the energy even more. The drums abruptly stop at the end.

Shift’s Juju leaps into a vibe like late 90’s dark jazz Tech Step but with large amounts of variation on the rhythm. The percussion is sharp and a rapidly evolving. Double bass and squelching synth notes trade off. This is a high energy piece.

Totem has a drum break which is a bit muted sounding sitting with sparse, delayed sax samples. The melody is a double bass loop which sits around the stuttering pattern of the drum break. The second half takes the melody and twists it into an instrument a bit like tuned steel drums.

[Bonus Downloads]
Shift - Wasteland starts out sparse and gradually brings in more percussion and the main drum break. The ambient nature of the track abruptly becomes much darker with a tense bassline and a forceful drum rhythm. Bell-like melodies from inside piano and airy pads tame the serious tone.

Random found sounds slowly morph and reveal the main rhythm of Kekkai. A double bass melody ties into the earlier tracks. Layered and alternating drum breaks give the track a strong groove. The slower tempo and ethereal sound effects make this a nice lead out to the EP but the second half shifts and leaves on an ominous note.

about

Pinecone Moonshine California

Run by Nic TVG, Pinecone Moonshine is a growing collection of Drumfunk (a style of Drum and Bass) and other abstract and ambient music. 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 in several of the pieces. ... more
