Coming through like a steam train on the second release, Seminal Sounds proudly presents two diverse workouts from longtime East Coast Junglist, Todd Buchler.
"Onyx" is an interesting half-time experiment in slow progression and suspense. Anchored by a heavy tribal drum and hypnotizing percussion, this tense track builds into an all-out war dance and is a perfect intro tune for any heavy set.
True to the Seminal Sounds taste, "Proem" harks back to the Techstep days of old with a fresh and rugged approach. An intense, stormy intro leads into a nasty acid squelch pulled straight from the warehouse and dropping immediately into a classic stepping break. This tune fits into just about any set with its balance of dark and funky vibes, which is sure to keep the floor moving around.
