Product Description

With his ice-cold debut album Pessimist delivers a defining work which to us represents the culmination of nearly a decade of collective research and development in underground drum’n’bass. It is hard to think of any producer, past or present, who has so skilfully and successfully bridged the sonics and sensibilities of d’n’b and techno.

In fact Pessimist makes drum ‘n bass work as techno: combining the monotone, infinite-horizon quality of the latter with the rhythmic swerve and soundsystem heft of the former.

The ruthless minimalism, and the tension which comes of that restraint, the swing and propulsion of the drum programming, the abyssal reverbs and long trails of delay, the deep and body-numbing sub-bass, the uncompromising palette of blacks and blues.
