The reunion of some of the the foundational Moving Shadow artists in 2020 caught Dominic Angas’s eye having signed with them 25 years ago in the late 90s. Breaking a four year streak where he released music exclusively on his own label, his Gasoline / Sundown single on Over/Shadow presented some of his most potent work yet. Now coming back for more, his next offering for the label somehow hits even heavier and harder than the last.
‘Fever Nights’ opens with a cinematic production, a downpitched sample of reedy instruments playing into a dystopian miasma that permeates the back alleys of crumbling cities depicted in the ensuing onslaught of rumbling drum and bass rhythms. The bass growls and the structure of the track shifts with a sense of urgency, as buildings loom and groan, threatening to topple over at any moment under the weight of thundering beats. Stutters and hisses scurry under the thudding debris, details of the intense atmospheres Dom & Roland masterfully builds.
The B side turns the agitation up to 10, with brassy swells on ‘Stingray’ sounding the alarm to the impending destruction of crushing breakbeats menacingly fading in. A moody sub bass and lightning surges torpedo throughout, with reverent choir vocals cut and shuffled as each punch and kick bursts right through them.
Dom & Roland’s second release for Over/Shadow finds his drum and bass sound in a state of chaotic perfection.
