Salzburg based artist ''Screamarts'' has crafted a five track spanning work of tough and deep oriented Drum & Bass for the fifteenth release in the Major League DnB series. The upcoming producer, - who has recently been featured in an episode of Noisia Radio - opens his ''Submerged EP'' with the robust sounding tones of the title track. ''Submerged'' contains grainy drum samples, an inspiring vocal cut and wide FX which add an ethereal quality to this already stomping opener. ''Ambigious'' is characterized by a slightly driven bassline that operates in perfect harmony with the more open ambiance of the chorus and break. Dreamy tones from across the sonic spectrum are dripping throughout the breakdown and a modulated but soothing pad-sound is subtly dying down before the track develops into a half time jam of monstrous proportions.
''Seize'' (a collab with 'Humanon') is somewhere in the middle of mysterious and technoid. Screamarts & Humanon again using sublime vocal cuts to guide the listener into the peak of this energetic, drum-oriented cut.
''Treat You Right'' showcases the Salzburg based producers ear for music from the popular territory. A sturdy rhythm track is balanced out by manipuluted vocals and beautifully orchestrated pads and synth work. Nevertheless, the backbone of 'Treat You Right' is still a dark and saturated bassline that helps to maintain the underground feeling of this club and radio friendly effort.
''Yami'' is a closing down track that's full of reverb, tribal sounding drum hits and uplifting bits of vocal.
Screamarts ''Submerged EP'' is a fine and surprising addition to Major League DnB's ever growing catalog and will be available across all specialized retailers.
