Enichkin - Over Dark

Enichkin is one artist who is one on my fav twisted psytrance artist since i heard him for the first time on Dark Records debut compilation Va Twisted Flavors. This is one artist who has pushed the envelope in dark-psy to an unimaginable extent. His production style is full of suprises, so lets check what he has in store for us with his latest experiments. Crazed-out mad women breaks out into laughter, followed by a kid crying in the dark silence of the night beginning with break-beaty percussions, this is a highly experimental track it looks like ...furthermore 01.01 onwards the track kicks off with some variable percussions which creates an IDM impression for this track too...obscure chopped-up beats n fungus leads 2:18 the chaos fades out into a silence with the kid crying back again with some twirly synth and there 2:34 starts the real twist dark rolling bassline with some floating synths and eerie sounding riffs building up an organic brain-dance, quirky odd synth sounds ending at 4:29 with just a snare smartly patterned adding to an incredible swirling lead, topped with the kids cryin sample repeated again breaking out into a cold tribalistic frenzy , murky evil sounds float by and more mad acid layers , this is a big leap ahead by Enichkin tryin to do a cross-over of IDM, breakbeat n Psy.

Enichkin - Mendez Goat

Spacey leads joined by some industrial ambience, Wicked rhtyms marchin along with phat rolling bassline, and restrained cerebral acid sounds and a spooky atmosphere backed with long screams and spacey leads tweaked to perfection. The whole track keeps going into a cold journey into deep dark caverns and a brief break-beat loop makes you feel experience the landing into the bottom of this deep dark dive and bursts out into the rolling basslien with more chaotic leads and a breathless voice breaks the rhythm back into a silence with drones towards the end.

Enichkin - ACid Ritual

Some vocoded voice sample with white ambient noize and some squelched beats, jagged synth lines, static washes, electrical shorts and other odd sounds and a chopped up bassline and kick keeps goin till 1:26 which opens up with a marching phat bassline and crazy leads whizzin and squeaking ,the electrical short-circuitry keeps coming from all directions, 2:53 the bassline gallops with some unexpected sounds ranging from banging percussions, jazz stabs and burps, this is like some unusual layers of sound mixed up to create some innovative rhythm which again breaks into more intense neural activity, gives a clear idea about the name of this track.

Enichkin - Russian Lullaby

This one marches with a phat wobbly bassline and kick which is frantically chopped for a break which is mixed with different melodic samples, creating a collage of moods from a funny, psychotic classic sound spectrum combined with nostalgic childhood themes and strange computer-generated acid lines, follows by pumping a sense of climax raising bpms grinding breaking into some more madness one could ever imagine and back the funny laugh of that crazy women from enichkins Over Dark track, the artists has experimented like mad and certainly given us a surprising dose of dementia through this Russian Lullaby.

Enichkin - The Morning

This one's an absolute IDM track , with some mad granular synthwork chopped and mixed together, 1:20 on breaks into that video game kinda melody and glitchy breaks makes this a surprisingly wicked track and a rhythmic convention of sorts. I find that kind of evolution beneath triviality on this one certainly some decorative evolution.

My favs 4, 2, 3, 1 and 5
