Here’s the press:
Any fan of drum & bass will know the name Cyantific. Having built a reputation as a leader of the new school D&B generation, Jon Stanley is now approaching a decade of releasing incredible music that’s equally at home on the dance floor as it is on your iPod or in your car.
Last year saw Cyantific unleash an incredible single for Ram Records, as well as ‘Bounce It’ / ‘Obey’ on his own self-titled Cyantific record label. Here we have the follow up to that release and it’s undoubtedly another exciting 12”, packed with plenty of Cyantific’s trademark energy.
Effortlessly combining sharp production skills with graceful musicality, you can always be assured that a new Cyantific record is one to watch out for and this new single is certainly no exception.
‘Mirador’ takes the lead, opening with huge sweeping sound FX and a bouncing synth line that harks back to a classic Ram sound. It’s not long before you notice Cyantific’s signatures though, as he brings in vocal snippets and washing pads that gradually build and grow before a monster bassline drops into the mix. This one undeniably straddles the line between restrained musical class and outright dance floor mayhem.
On the flip side ‘Defect’ comes in at an infinitely more paranoid level. Strings are infused with urgency and rolling breaks thunder along, dragging you kicking and screaming towards the inevitable drop. You won’t be disappointed when it hits either, grinding bassline sections are juxtaposed with obsessive synths, all pulling you deeper into Cyantific’s musical world.
