Boomkat Product Review:
Dubstep linchpin Martin Clarke delivers his finest production yet for his incredibly consistent Keysound imprint. This record should come with a Government health warning, Mr Clarke and the man like Dusk have produced some seriously illegal bass pressure, soundsystem engineers beware - this one's going straight into the red! 'Mantis' opens with an unnerving battle cry twocked from some choice Chinese field recordings, before subsiding into gluttanous subbass abuse, something akin to standing next to a Boeing 747 on takeoff. Much like his previous effort 'lata' the uptempo electro flecked riddim is interwoven with authentically rich sino melodies for a lush ride into areas yet unexplored in dubstep territory. 'Mantis V13' takes a slightly more opiated route, brooding strings and splashing drums, with no less bassline trickery, the producers carving the bottom end into a driving drone of immense proportions. F*ckin hell, this has got me going! Pure bassbin burial material.
