Influential West Coast beat master Eprom
and heavyweight producer Boreta
of The Glitch Mob
come together as Nasty Ways
to present "Cyber Snake / Skrakken", a two-track release that slithers through the sonic expanse on a slow-ripping shockwave.
With a laid-back roll that saunters into a heavy hook, "Cyber Snake" sizzles around the edges with a sharp combination of tightly drawn synths, smoky effects and a bulbous bassline. Bristling with electricity and a slightly higher tempo, "Skrakken" spreads out into shiny slices of sound, a metallic tune with an undercurrent of a choreographed robot invasion.
Taken together as a dose of fresh sonic stimulation, the two tracks of "Cyber Snake / Skrakken" showcase Nasty Ways' finesse with bass-lit production, delivering chopped audio hash and an easygoing slide off the edge.
