Debut Transmission: Dead Man’s Chest – Liquid ’94
The revivalist project of established drum & bass producer Eveson, Dead Man’s Chest focuses in around the 157bpm mark, bringing together the classic sound of skittering breaks, guttural bass and stabs that transport each and every listener back to golden age of the early ’90s (whether they experienced it for real or not). “Dead man‘s chest is simply me delving into and re-imagining the music that got me hooked 20-odd years ago,” the Bristol producer tells Data Transmission.
Opener ‘Liquid ’94’ sets a rough and ready standard for the EP, one that is often missing from productions with a more modern focus. The track feels raw and ancient, but holds a great significance, as if it were responsible for carrying on the memories of long lost ravers.
