Exclusive: The Upbeats – Ethers
A duo that barely needs an introduction: The Upbeats are back and in epic fashion. The de-evolution virtuosos have been steadily releasing music in 2017, with a wide selection of fantastic drum & bass to choose from. To further add to their music-filled year, the New Zealanders are primed and ready to make their Critical Music debut with a thrilling EP titled Punks.
Taken from their upcoming EP, “Ethers” is a neurofunk lover’s dream. Starting off on a spine-tingling note, the track gurgles into existence, with The Upbeats enhancing the chilling tone of the track with some filthy drum samples and dystopian chord progressions. The darkness oozing out of the intro continues throughout the track, as evil, atmospheric bass lines captivate and enthrall listeners in a rather sinister fashion. “Ethers” might be a stark digression from The Upbeats’ general high-octane style, but does well to typify their versatility and production expertise.
Punks will be released November 24 and is available for preorder here.
