    First piece of audio is up! This EP is sounding really wicked. The artwork almost has a Mad Max feel to it but with a twist. Plus there's a storyline behind the EP. Love how Billain is creating a whole universe with his music :D



    Here's the Colonize EP trailer.. looks like a trailer to a sci-fi film

    Here's the official EP artwork. Made by Enis Čišić (the same guy who made the Colossus and Blockfield artwork)

    The Colonize EP is being released 14.09 as a Beatport exclusive, and 28.09 worldwide digital. The vinyl date is still TBA as of now, however if you go on the Triple Vision page you can see that the vinyl will be a 12" single with Colonize / Feed For Speed (!).

    Seriously? It personally grabs my attention more than the other recent Eatbrain releases (sorry Eatbrain fans)...

    I feel like Billain is drifting away into this new style with every release... he even described his upcoming LP as "a whole new type of neurofunk" o_O

    Seriously, I respect him for experimenting with his music / being original. More artists need to do this, there are too many dnb artists that blatantly try to imitate other artists

    I had the chance to chat with him briefly while I was having him over in June and I must say I seriously respect and admire the guy. It's not like I would dig each and every single one of his tunes, then again the depth of thought he puts into his production in general is incredible and almost unparalleled in this field.

    You had Billain over? Lucky bugger haha

    Yeah, Billain is in general an intelligent person IMO. So far I don't think I've heard one bad tune from him, I also have an appreciation for his work. Plus he has great taste in films :D

    Second piece of audio for the Billain EP just dropped: "Billain - Kingston Drone"


    Also, Billain said that apparently the vinyl is going to be orange (Eatbrain never did coloured vinyl before). Let's hope this is true!

    As much as I wouldn't regularly play a fair bit of Billain's music, there's no denying that the depth in production is absolutely astounding, something that should definitely be respected.

    The dude is definitely in a leauge of his own I'd say. Its always fun to see the reactions when you drop his tunes on an unsuspecting crowd

    I am so happy that this tune exists. It's almost a parody of his own music.

    I'm not sure if this is true, but I just heard that 'Feed For Speed' was inspired by the guy on Youtube who comments "IT FUCKING NEEDS TO BE IN THE NEED FOR SPEED UND 3 RGROUND!!!" on every video :teeth:

    You sir are correct. Btw Billain told me that one or two of his tunes might be there (and this one's one of those) :D

    That Feed For Speed tune is just terrifying.
