Label: VisionScore: 7/10
Seeing these titans of all things bass collaborating would make anyone a little bit more than excited. Who doesn’t love Noisia and Calyx & Teebee? Have their endeavours in the studio been fruitful and worth the wait? I’d say a resounding yes. Hyenas gets Noisia back doing what they do best; brain defying, edit laden tech step D&B. We know they can do the big and brash stadium shaking beats which Deadmau5 seemed to enjoy yet may have alienated a few die hard fans. There’s no doubting this will bring those heads back round. Choppy percussion and a deadly lead riff, it bears all the hallmarks of those involved. It’s vintage Noisia all over Hyenas, which is never ever a negative. More aggression is found within The Liquid. A shuddering 2 step groove thunders amongst a mass of bleeps and precise drum editing as Noisia and Evol Intent seem to want to see if they can start an all out war in the studio.
Noisia will forever be one of D&B’s most revered production outfits and with good reason. They have a mastery with sound that seems to put them beyond reach of other producers and with this latest single, they appear to be back with what made them so popular in the first place.
