Forest Drive West is back on beloved jungle outlet Rupture LDN this month with his storming new EP 'Set Free'.
After delivering one of underground d&b’s most-played tracks — ‘Jungle Crack’ — for the label run by Mantra and Double O at the tail-end of 2016, FDW returns from his forays on Livity Sound and the like with five killer cuts.
A tense steppa from the off, the title track is becomes increasingly erractic as it goes on, introducing waves of shuffling percussion and blistering breaks, all underpinned by a continuous, morbid low-end growl.
Sat alongside a slew of other tracks that offer sublime juxtapositions between space and chaos, 'Set Free' is out 29th June. Pre-order a copy via the Rupture LDN Bandcamp.
