If Equiknoxx, Minor Science and Slikback made a tune together it might sound something like ‘Impulse’, the opening cut which positively gallops out of the blocks on Forest Drive West’s Terminus EP. ‘Impulse’ is a thrilling production, one which also perfectly sets out the stall for the rest of Terminus. ‘Impulse’ builds outwards from classic jungle and hardcore sounds - over a whirlwind drum loop and distorted ‘Woo! Yeah!’ sample, Forest Drive West layers writhing bass and grinding synthesisers to create an invigoratingly tense number.

The remaining cuts on Terminus follow suit by at once supercharging classic rave sounds and also taking them into a strange, shadowy and mysterious new space. ‘Void Control’ and the Terminus title-track exhibit the same freewheeling energy that characterises the best Special Request cuts, their breakbeats skittering around all amid all manner of alien synth tones.

There is also a darkness which lurks at the corner of this record that makes one think of Pessimist, Overlook and the rest of the UVB-76 label. It’s a vibe which is accentuated still further on closing cut ‘Curved Path’, a tune where paranoid drum ‘n’ bass passages in the Metalheadz mould are balanced out with periods of ominous ambience.

The Terminus EP sees Forest Drive West delivering a blistering ride through post-jungle productions.
