Zygos - Drained EP (Trusik 006)
Trusik are definitely leading the way when it comes to really pushing the more underground artists into the forefront. For a label that’s only been around for 6 releases they’ve really made their mark. Their name is super recognized in the industry and they’ve definitely made me aware of artists I’d probably never heard of until a much later date. Apart from Pugilist who I’ve kind of kept tabs on due to him being based in Melbourne and J:kenzo’s relentless pushing of his music early on, I hadn’t heard of any other artist Trusik released.
Zygos is once again another artist I hadn’t heard a release from until this pressing got announced.
Trusik definitely got the right taste because this EP is giant. The first track is as thick and heavy as it gets. Extremely minimal sounds with wild samples in all the right places and a snare I can’t get enough off.
The B sides of the press are more on the roller end of dubstep. Definitely something strong for the dance floor though. Would love to hear these tracks appear mid set from somebody. Proper space the floor out and move kind of things.
Trusik are definitely a label to follow when you’re looking for the up and coming specialties the 140 world has to offer. Huge release guys.
