The Hungarian madman known as Mindscape brings his trademark sound to the masses with "Road Rage EP" - the latest offering on EATBRAIN, the label from the mind of Jade. Under the creative direction of this neurofunk innovator, Eatbrain has presided over countless releases by drum & bass's finest since the label's inception in 2011. 2013 alone has seen Eatbrain work in conjunction with the likes of Telekinesis, Concord Dawn, Coppa, 2Shy, NickBee, and Teddy Killerz, while continuing to expand into a widely supported movement within drum & bass culture. Continuing the streak of quality, Mindscape joins the fold with his first solo EP on Eatbrain - Road Rage EP. The producer has been a close ally of the imprint since it's inception, having worked with Jade on tracks like 'Banshee' (Citrus Recordings), 'Orion' (Commercial Suicide), and Mindscape's own infamous remix of Jade's 'Venom' (EATBRAIN002). With "Road Rage EP", Mindscape delivers his finely tuned artistic vision to Eatbrain; grungy, innovative, riot-starting drum & bass music. Mindscape - 'Rat Pack' 'Rat Pack' immediately sets the vibe with satisfying plucked keys atop pattering drums and ominous atmosphere. Mindscape doesn't wait for listeners to get comfortable before unleashing two hulking bassline punches on the downbeat, setting the stage for the remainder of the tune. The intro draws to a close, and equally distorted bassline counterparts come into focus. 'Rat Pack' gets serious as aggressive drums converge with riotous vocal snippets to create a potently anarchic concoction. Melodic components descend downward, with a sense of hopelessness. A descent into madness, no doubt. Mindscape - 'Brightness' Mindscape provides no-nonsense dancefloor vibes with 'Brightness'. Quickly stepping things up during the intro, 'Brightness' continues to gain momentum as new elements are brought to the forefront. A hefty bassline swings back and forth as the drum programming intensifies, kicking things into full force. Synth stabs converge with an unruly cowbell to increase the pulse rate. Faint vocal-like pads stretch into the breakdown, strangely mystical and bordering upon uplifting, before crashing back down to earth with another heavyweight drop. Mindscape delivers a pure dancefloor bomb with 'Brightness'.
