Ruse Records presents ‘Continuum EP’.
This time we’ve tried something different, we’ve moved out side the usual sound of our Ruse Concept of 'Light and Dark Neuro influenced' releases and showcase two different sides of the Drum and Bass Spectrum; from some extremely talented producers drawn from different sides of the globe including New Zealand, USA and Europe, utilizing the ‘Deeper’ sounds from one edge of the spectrum from Urban Notion and .Lotus to the Technoid sounds at the other edge of the spectrum from Yabol and Lethal & Khanage with kalashnikov.
‘Continuum EP’ is a derivative from the gradual transition from one side of the Drum and Bass Spectrum to the other.
We show case two tracks from the ‘Deeper’ side of the spectrum to two tracks from the ‘Technoid’ side of the spectrum.

Deeper – Urban Notion – Insomnia
This group of New Zealand producers, come correct with a beautiful piece of art with ‘Insomnia’.
Squelching reeces introduce tight and powerful drums while horns and melodies blend and morph into each other inducing a hypnotic state, a semi poignant reverberated vocal dictates every drum and bass producers motto: ‘I shall not sleep’ as the tune hit’s it’s first huge drop, a colossal wall of deep bass is released, to the listeners enjoyment. As the drums kick in anyone standing still will automatically start moving.
The New Zealand heritage of these producers can be felt in the flavor brought to this track and like New Zealand parties this track is full of fun, vibes and a great time!
Technoid – Lethal, Khanage + Kalashnikov - Contaminate
This incredible team effort from a barrage of this sounds best artists, creates the metallic Technoid influenced monster that is ‘Contaminate’.
Unsettling layers of beats start the progression as the metallic hard hitting drums join forces to get this tune turned fiend underway, rumbling sub bass carries the tune along while dirty reese’s bubble, morph then tear along the layers taking everything in it’s path along fore the ride.
The tune breaks down with a minimal approach to the storm, the drums are reintroduced leading the 1st few bars which then seem to get injected with the drug everyone wants, a bridge before the drop then back in to the madness, multiple reese layers not seen in the previous section of the tune are added helping the progression of this tune and ride into hell.
Deeper – .Lotus – How can I Love Her
A new super group consisting of 3 producers, Spherix (from Catacombs), Signal (from Robot Death Squad) and Aqua-Tek join together for their first of what looks like many great releases.
‘How Can I Love Her’, starts of with alluring bass knocks and cords, a well processed female vocal prepares you for the drop as the bass knocks and strings calm the setting, the drop is lushly set in deep sub bass with brooding reeses, a very sophisticated tune fusing a subtle yet very tech element with a deep emotional vibe.
An extremely versatile and appealing tune, perfect for any set and every mp3 player.
Technoid – Yabol - Dissociation
Polish producer Yabol creates an absolute masterpiece with Dissociation.
Taking the core sound, roots and influence of the Techno genera like no other Technoid tune, the unconditional fusion of the two means you could fit perfect in a Techno or Drum and Bass set and still be completely overwhelmed by the tune.
The groove is set and the intro begins, a jumping cacophony of layers gradually evolve into the drum, powerful drums then lead the intro into a break down which like the title name, displaces you from earth; from the breakdown ‘Yabol’ builds you back up with muffled sub bass waiting to get out, it’s wish is granted and the full tune explodes into action with high energy drums and complimenting layers building and driving.
The tune gradually breaks down half way through the tune and enters into full techno mode, continuing the influential groove for the next minute encompassing all that is Technoid giving just enough time ‘Dissociation’ drops back into the Drum and Bass fusion that helps this masterpiece to have received support all over the world and deliver awe and admiration for listeners and producers alike.
