Amit is no stranger to bass music; he’s released a slew of drum’n’bass bangers across several colossal labels, including Commercial Suicide and Metalheadz. His first album, Never Ending, showcased his uncanny ability to blend Eastern instrumentation with foreboding basslines and hyper-paced rhythms. The producer has been hard at work on his sophomore album, but found some time to adventure in to world of dark and disturbed dubstep. His EP Stay With Me on Exit Records exemplifies the strengths of his production skills–spooky ambience and a devilishly ominous bass melody.
The title track features the alluring vocals of Rani, who will also be featured on Amit’s forthcoming LP. From the droning ambiance to the sad melodic phrases of the strings and pianos, every instrument in the arrangement conveys the same melancholic flavor. The EP’s other track Kritical is an industrial, hard-stepping stormer. More breaksy and up-front than Stay With Me, Kritical is a tune meant for dancefloor demolition. The organ keeps the pressure on while the hi-hats slap the pace into heated frenzy. Amit scores high marks for establishing two completely different vibes with both tunes.
