Nurve drops ‘Cut Me And I Bleed / 32 Lies’ on Nurve Music
Nurve touches down on his very own Nurve Music imprint for this punishing 2 track EP ‘Cut Me And I Bleed / 32 Lies’. Nurve has openly spoken of his love affair with the late 90s early 00s Drum & Bass era and by the sounds of it, that love affair is stronger than ever!
Nurve has been an active member of the music community for a long time. Starting out by selling records in his hometown of Bedford, to producing an array of varying sounds from the UK underground, including Jungle/Drum & Bass, his production spectrum is a versatile one. Also being well established in the Dubstep and Grime scene for over a decade as part of Macabre Unit, he later reconnected with his roots through Education & Bass and its head Nomine, a respected Drum & Bass producer through his Outrage alias and long-time friend.
With the leading track being suitably named, ‘Cut Me And I Bleed’, he certainly channels that era but with a fresh lick of paint. Nurve prides himself on production value and this track is testament to that. It kicks off with the eerie dissonance that could be placed nicely in a sci-fi or horror film with ease and as it begins to pick up energy it also starts to indicate that something very heavy is on its way. It drops with the most moodiest and pulsating bass that you could imagine and the intricate percussive switch ups keep you moving as the track unfolds.
’32 Lies’ is absolutely electric! From the very first bar you are thrown into this epic cinematic experience with so many layers that it’s hard to focus on one thing. The haunting vocal samples carry us through to the breakdown where we are momentarily introduced to this grotesque bass which gives us a good insight into how this is all going to pan out. When it drops it goes forth like a stampede of bass, synthesis and a pounding 2 step drum pattern that will have you booking into a chiropractor as soon as you possibly can to sort out the vertebrae in your neck!
Today we premiere ‘Cut Me And I Bleed’ which you can check out below. The 2 track EP drops this Friday 3rd September, make sure you grab a copy for your collection via the purchase button beneath the Soundcloud player!
