Anyone remember early nu skool breaks? Or breakstep? Or 1997 tech-step drum & bass? All three sub genres saw producers compete to create the most preposterously dark and soulless soundscapes, the sonic equivalent of being thrown headfirst and helpless into a giant heap of long-dead insects, lifeless eyes, limbs and carapaces scraping against your skin as you sink further and further into the depths. Something similar seems to be happening once again in the more noisenik corners of bass music, and UK producer Vellum is at the heart of it here. 'Scriptures' and 'Bombs' are a couple of hard-jacking industrial monsters, with drops to gently fillet your ears and serve them up on a platter.
