Eptic has been a producer’s producer for so long as we’ve been listening to him — since his earliest days on By no means Say Die, to his couple singles on Monstercat, to his collaborations with DJ Snake or Marshmello. He all the time brings an additional edge to his productions.
Very like Area Laces who lastly launched his Excessive Vaultage EP this yr, followers have been clamoring for an Eptic album for some time after listening to what he can do together with his quite a few EPs like Flesh & Blood, Immortal, The Finish, or Doom. Now, throughout ten songs together with collaborations with Dillon Francis, MARAUDA, MUST DIE!, and HOL!, we get Eptic at his most pure.
There’s a powerful argument to be made that a number of the collaborations overshadow the solo productions, as some are saying on social media. However I believe the fact is that the collaborations give a break within the pacing that make them stand out. The best way the album is organized — 3 solo tracks, then 2 collabs, one other 3 solo tracks, then 2 ultimate collabs — offers symmetry and clear sections of the venture. It’s truly an excellent technique to craft a tracklist.
And as many individuals are saying that the collaborations overshadow the solo productions, we get some basic Eptic lure and bass home in tracks like “Run It,” “Drum Beats,” and “Final Flex,” full together with his signature sonic tags.
That being mentioned, “Wall Of Demise” with MARAUDA (the one single from the album) and “Talent Verify” with MUST DIE! are absolute bangers in their very own proper.
You’ll be able to try the total album under now by way of Eptic’s personal Overlord Music.
