Lao Wai - Wiping Brains EP (Blu Saphir Limited 009)

Lao Wai is smashing it proper all over the drum 'n bass circuit. From playing gigs around the world (the man just recently tore up Italy!) to releases on Natured Beatz and Horizons Music (alongside long time collaborator, Release), the future looks bright for this rising star.
As seen with this EP, Lao Wai does it dark, deep and can take the music to the deepest confines of your soul – a truly fresh sound amidst much of the cookie cutter cut-n-paste these days.

DIRTY ROTTEN:
Lao Wei comes through to Blu Saphir LTD with the sounds of euphoric caning darkness. With an intro reminiscent of one of those black and white movies, the well known old school sample “I’ll set you free” plows through atmosphere before minimalistic drum hits take the floor. Chopped up breaks and bass kicks resonate. Pitched down vocals and bass integrate into the break, as a slow decrescendo leaves the listener hanging on... And then the break hits... plowing through the brain.

MURDA SOUND:
Anyone that’s been around for a while is familiar with this old school formula – euphoric pads lay the ground to growling bass and razor-sharp drums. Intricate drum fills permeate the air. Melodies and airy effects fill the void of space in the backdrop, as growling bass propels forward. The echo of a voice is heard.
The break brings back memories of older style drum & bass – Lao Wei has created a style as if it were 90s tech step on steroids with more melodic elements added. Stormer!

SELF DEFENCE:
Ready? FIGHT! This track doesn’t mess around. Thick bass and articulate drums are mechanisms of raw destruction. Techy and viral, neuro heads will love this one. “Left your shield!” rings throughout, while a twisted oblivion of sounds will attempt to mangle your brain until nothing remains. Try to regain your composure during a brief pause – because the mayhem comes around one more time to destroy.

WIPING BRAINS:
Who would have thought that a tune name like this would have melody in it? A bit more chill than the previous, but still aggressive, minimal and rolling. Shorter than the rest of the EP, this tune still packs a punch. Fluttered drums switch up vibe a bit as we roooooolllll through to the finish. Brilliant EP.
