Picks Of The Week (by u/lefuniname)

0. Gydra - Snake Monastery LP [Eatbrain]

Recommended if you like: Mizo, Pythius, Prolix
In case you missed it, one of my favorite releases of this week was Gydra's Snake Monastery LP. A full-length review of that can be found here!
Since I don't review any more neuro this week, I just wanted to mention a few more Neurofunk releases of this week before I start with the other reviews: - Zombie Cats - Did You Know (Kemal Remix) - 2Whales - WOW (Vitalik on that double single is amazing) - Kumarion - You Want It (Spor Remix) - Mewone - Shine - Deformaty - Mass Murder is a Lazy Man's X Factor (what a name) - Mechanical Vein - New Blood (Zardonic Remix) - Paranoiac Del - Radio EP

1. The Prototypes - Ten Thousand Feet & Rising [The Prototypes]

Recommended if you like: Mind Vortex, Culture Shock, Tantrum Desire
Another album review? Hey, why not.
The next entry in the ongoing dancefloor album month comes from none other than Brighton-based legends The Prototypes! Since they were some of the first producers I listened to in my early dnb days, they have a very special place in my heart. But not just that, they actually headlined the first dnb rave I went to, back in 2016. Since then I've probably seen them live around 10 times and I'd see them live another 10 times in a heartbeat, and that's not just the rave-deprived me talking. Okay enough of me fanboying over them, what's this about an album?
Earlier this year The Prototypes announced the release of their second album Ten Thousand Feet & Rising, to be released in May of this year. Turns out that this wasn't the best time for it, to put it mildly. First pushed back to July and then to October, the release of this album has been a bit of a wild ride. To make up for the extended waiting time, they decided to beef the album up a bit. In addition to the already released singles, they also released Enter The Warrior, with sick music video included, Paradise, the Paradise Remixes by Audio and upcoming electronic producer Mal Madson and Quantum before the full album launch. So you might know a lot of the tracks on this long player already. But I still wanted to talk about it, because it is still one of my favorite albums of the year.
The album starts off with the absolute anthem that is Enter The Warrior. I already reviewed this way back in July, but the things I said back then still hold up today. The LEAN BACK, DROP BACK, FALL BACK vocals by B3NDU never fail to hype me the fuck up. I still occasionally get the vocals stuck in my head. Incredible way to start off an album.
The Prototypes keep this momentum up very well in the following track, Shadow. At first you might think that this is more of a chilled followup to the intro. Then the piano comes in and the hype expectations rise, maybe expecting a fun Danny Byrd-esque track. But then, BAM, the massive drop hits you in your face and gets you moving with such an incredible ease that you instantly know: this is a Prototypes banger. A Protobanger maybe even. The bass melody of the drop might seem simple by itself but together with the arrangement around it it just gets you hooked like its nobody's business.
You will probably know this next one too. On Oxygen the duo takes a bit of a breather and takes us on a beautiful dancefloor ride. From the incredible intro with its stripped down version of the main melody in the background setting the atmosphere perfectly, to the chillingly beautiful vocal performance by Kudu Blue, to the explosion of magnificence that is the drop, this is a special one. Somehow they even managed to trump the first half of the track with the second half. Might just be a few slight variations here and there, but it just works so so so well for me. Okay, let's get back to the bangers.
To be specific, let's talk about Quantum. The quintessential, or should I say prototypical, Prototypes track. Space documentary sample? Check. Simple but effective melody that you can easily sing along to but also can't because you will run out of breath? Check. A sick switchup towards the end of the drop? Checkeroni. It's like an upgraded version of their first big hit Lights. Banger. Time for another switchup.
Reason is one of the new tunes and brings us straight back into the realm of beautifulness. But unlike Oxygen, this one goes way further into liquid territory, with a bit of break chopping thrown in. Just like in High Contrast's latest oldschool break-age Rhythm Is Changing, this track features LOWES on the vocals. And my god, they really hit it out the park with their performance. That whole last minute of the track where it slowly becomes an acapella of just LOWES should make that abundantly clear, just amazing.
You want more switchups? Sure! How about we switch to something completely different this time? Something that isn't even dnb (gasp)? Introducing Paradise, the Prototypes' foray into Electro. Or Electro House, I really don't know genres outside dnb. For this experiment they got the lovely Elle Exxe on vocal duty, who you might know from Oliverse's Unspoken. While listening to this track you really get a new appreciation for the production skills of The Prototypes. Even in this "foreign" genre, they still manage to produce a banger of the highest calibre. The melodies throughout the track are just masterful, from the stunning melody in the buildup to the in-your-face drop. I'm definitely in Paradise while listening to it. For us dnb folks they even got Neurofunk legend Audio to do a remix of it, which I very much recommended.
Back. And forth. Move the track styles back and forth. In other words, it's time for a nice little uplifting track again. On Passion the duo once again flexes their talent for catchy uplifting dancefloor. With uncredited vocals by Kudu Blue's singer and their aforementioned musical skills, they crafted another great tune here. I'll skip talking about Electric and Rocket Guns Blazin', because they've been released for quite a long time and you guys should just know that they're incredible bangers by now.
Sandwiched between those two bangers we got Killer, a collaboration with 2Shy MC, their regular companion on live shows. For this track they have gone for more of a rocky neuro vibe, which 2Shy's vocals especially emphasize. Heavy stuff. Last but not least, we have the title track, Ten Thousand Feet & Rising. It is pretty much the calmest track of the album, which was much needed, considering the amount of bangers in a row we've just witnessed. Like a lot of their contemporaries, namely Sub Focus & Wilkinson, this one is more of a slower atmospheric breakbeat track, conveying the feeling of the album being over quite well.
All in all, I'm very happy with what we got in this second album. Incredible production, anthem after anthem, just great all around. My favorite has got to be Enter The Warrior, but Shadows and Reason are also very much up there. Fully recommended.

2. Various Artists - Soul Music 2020 [Soulvent Records]

Recommended if you like: Soulful Drum and Bass
Compilation albums are great. You get a whole bunch of new music all at once, usually from all kinds of different producers ranging from people you have never heard of to some of the biggest names in the scene.
Usually they aren't as huge as this one though.
Soulvent Records just released their massive 31-track compilation Soul Music 2020. Yes, not 13 or 3.1, actually 31. That many tracks on any dnb label I kind of like would be amazing, but this on Soulvent is just a dream for me. The label founded by Pola from Pola & Bryson, amongst other people, is one of my favorite go-to's for soulful releases from lesser known producers. Just this year they had marvellous releases by Blacklab, In:Most, Siege MC, Mountain and Askel & Elere, some of which will easily end up in my top 100 of the year in December. Safe to say, I was excited.
Obviously I won't talk about all 31 tracks here. I'm not that crazy. For this I have selected my top 3 tracks on this massive release, in no particular order.
First off, we have an amazing contribution by Circumference called Midsommar. Circumference is a new duo consisting of Freshney, whose Bloom EP is probably one of my top 10 EPs of this year, and Kit Jones. 18 year old Freshney's solo work was already way too good for his age, but their work as Circumference seems to somehow take it yet another step further.
Just listen to Midsommar, you'll get what I mean. The IMANU influences of course cannot be denied, but they repackaged all the building blocks into something more beautiful instead of the usual darker vibe IMANU goes for. With the help of a lot of strings and pianos, an amazing call and response and a second drop that changes the whole feel of it, they have created something that truly gives me chills. Easily one of my favorites this week. Just weird that they released it now, it's not even close to Midsummer. Learn to read a calendar smh.
Secondly I want to talk about Natus - Rhema. Natus is someone I just recently found out about thanks to his track Falling Up, but I wish I discovered him earlier. He's a up-and-comer from London with experience in classical music, and man, it shows. The easiest comparison would be Keeno, someone he actually shared a release on earlier this year, on the Med School: Graduation compilation. Every now and then Natus crafts a composition that is out of this world. Rhema is one of those. Prepare to be taken on a journey. And please stick around for at least 4 minutes and 30 seconds, trust me, you will not regret it.
Last but not least I want to mention Blacklab and their track Losing Touch. After their beautiful Violet EP in August my expectations for the american duo have skyrocketed. The good thing about these two is that they still manage to satisfy even the highest of the high expectations. Losing Touch is just a vibe and a half. With lovely vocals by Erin Goss and a sublime production they managed to create yet another track that just makes me drift away. Beautiful stuff.
Those were just three amazing tunes out of the whole 31-track strong release though. If any of this sounded interesting to you, please check the whole thing out, there's a lot of great stuff on it.
Other deep/dark/techy (liquid stuff comes next, don't worry) releases I would recommend: - The Caracal Project - Expresso (Tom Finster Remix) <3 - DRS, L-Side - EAV - Sustance - Be Forgiven - GEST - Been Thru - Whiney, Parly B - Roll Out - Forbidden Society - Spectral / Hypno - CELO - Collider (Kidsonic Remix)

3. Winslow - Mumbles Of Grace / To Walk A Mile [Goldfat Records]

Recommended if you like: BOP, Subwave, Royalston
Sometimes perseverance pays off.
That's at least how I feel when I scroll through the amount of content the prolific US-based producer Winslow has amassed over time. Over years he has published articles, for example his Women In Drum And Bass article that I clearly remember being shared here, countless production videos and streams and just a lot of general DnB related content. Seriously, his YouTube channel is a real treasure trove. This year, however, it seems like he is really picking up steam. Multiple UKF uploads, two Goldfat releases, the incredibly unique Home Alone EP on CODE Recordings, a remix for Degs on Hospital and he's also part of the Soul Music 2020 release! Slow and steady wins the race sometimes. I guess that's why he's called Win-slow and not Win-quick.
His latest double single Mumbles Of Grace / To Walk A Mile was released on Goldfat Records. The liquid-focused label was founded by Mitekiss back in 2015. While it was at first just an outlet for his own productions, he soon enough included other producers onto the label's roster. Just in this year they had releases by Easy & Geeks, pyxis and PRSPKTV that I all rate very highly. Mr Kettle has joined in on the fun too. And before you ask, no, I don't know why he's the kettle boy/man/master, but everyone keeps calling him that so I thought I'd try to blend in. I'm just jumping on the bandwagon here.
The first of two tracks on the release is Mumbles Of Grace. In short: The chillest of the chill vibes. Okay long version now. It starts off with a simple but catchy loop that sounds like something straight of a chill street cafe. Soon enough a piano and some strings join in and progressively build the track up into something beautiful. Even the vocal sample adds to the whole vibe of it. Apparently it's just him trying out his new voice recorder app and asking his girlfriend to say something, to which she responds with "uhh". Incredible, I know. Works really well for some reason though. Throughout the track the "simple but catchy loop" increases in power until it explodes magnificently in the second half of the track. Seriously, that second part is a piece of art.
The second track is To Walk A Mile. In his own words, this is the dark side of the EP. Reflective of the mood he was and is feeling during all of the chaos that is going on in the world this year, which becomes a bit more obvious when you begin to focus on all the little news clip samples he worked into the track. On this track he also went more into the jazzy direction, with saxophones and lush pianos setting the mood. I also like the drums.
All in all, go check it out. Especially the title track.
Other liquid releases I would recommend: - Telomic, Emily Makis - Dayfall - Cyantific - Farewell, Shadow - Hugh Hardie - Learning To Fly EP - ALB - Breathing Space (Edit)

4. Hidden Gems

The Authoritarian Personality

Though controversial at conception in the 1950s, Adorno’s theory of the authoritarian personality persists. He suggested the main elements consist of:
  • Blind allegiance to conventional beliefs about right and wrong
  • Respect for submission to acknowledged authority
  • Belief in aggression toward those who do not subscribe to conventional thinking, or who are different
  • A negative view of people in general - i.e. the belief that people would all lie, cheat or steal if given the opportunity
  • A need for strong leadership which displays uncompromising power
  • A belief in simple answers and polemics - i.e. The media controls us all or the source of all our problems is the loss of morals these days.
  • Resistance to creative, dangerous ideas. A black and white worldview.
  • A tendency to project one's own feelings of inadequacy, rage and fear onto a scapegoated group
  • A preoccupation with violence and sex
(Source: https://www.psychologistworld.com/influence-personality/authoritarian-personality)
Do these look familiar in 2020?
Under intense pressure, fear, and conditioning, vast swathes of people are revealing their authoritarian nature.
I have posited for over a decade that this personality has always been latent in the general populace. This has been revealed over the years by asking one question – ‘If you were the leader of your country for a day, what would you do?’ Consider the following evidence:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sMn5YVHsigE
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxhIXNiYlzs
Let me first say, I believe in the goodness of people. The problem is good intentions truly do pave the path to hell. What would people do with this sense of what they believe to be the supreme power of a head of state? Free chicken for everyone, compulsory vegetarianism, an obligatory four-day work week, everything tax free. All done on the spot, without scrutiny, flippant with the shared resources of a nation.
Along with this are several infantile policies that are specific to the person, without thought for the consequences. For all those good intentions, what we actually see is personal self-interest disguised as virtue. One person said everyone should be forced to wear silly hats. “If you can’t say something seriously enough to overcome the silly hat, you shouldn’t be saying it.” This idea alone has the consequences of removing bodily autonomy, advocating speech suppression, and stratification of society through a shaming culture.
There seems to be a belief that it is a head of state that confers power. Several in the videos believe it is the state that should provide food, which as caring an aim that is, negates the power of the individual to create that same level of influence with their free personal power. Given the power of a head of state for one single day, under their paradigm, they wouldn’t give up or confer authority to a more representative or democratic system, instead they would become total authority instantly, by virtue of their own grandiosity.
Under the immense pressure and fear of covid, people are desperate for control, for easy solutions. Lockdowns, masks, egregious state power, are all seen as justified means to an end regardless of whether they work, because they look as though they should work. Intense propaganda and a groupthink majority has been building momentum for years. The ego cannot tolerate loss of control. We are seeing now, as we have since antiquity, a descent into irrationality, and demands for a parental figure to fix it with simple solutions.
I believe the trauma we all face is like that of cPTSD and childhood trauma. Most of us have some form of childhood trauma, and most of us have not dealt with it sufficiently. As a result, many of us suffer from dissociation due to repression. As we are deep in global trauma, we cannot really work on healing as the worst of it is ongoing. Whilst we are in this state of near psychosis, many people dig further in, throwing in anything that seems as though it might work, as desperate compulsions we all must follow to be safe from existential threat.
As momentum builds, the ego of the authoritarian must grow as a shield against what would traditionally be called immorality. It is here that we learn something scary: Most people believe they are morally superior to most other people:
https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/most-people-consider-themselves-to-be-morally-superio
The only thing worse than an authoritarian, is an authoritarian that is unaware. These people are supremely dangerous, as their panic and belief in superiority gives them the perceived authority to know what is best for other people, and to do so with violence given enough stimulus over time. Since they believe themselves morally superior, and are backed up by perceived authority, they are capable of even genocide, with the belief they are doing good. Fear turns to anger, turns to hate, as shown by the many vitriolic online and real-world abuses one could describe as casual sadism.
Hitler was not an elitist. He was a regular loser. His stature demonstrates the danger of a disgruntled people ready to rally around an identifiable populist. What solution could be easier for the ‘greater good’ than total power and control? This applies to any ideology or political paradigm. Anything else is denial of human nature, as is to believe we have already witnessed the final genocide.
Most people don’t read books on history or politics of their own volition. Most millennials don’t know much about the Holocaust (https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/survey-finds-shocking-lack-holocaust-knowledge-among-millennials-gen-z-n1240031). Forgetting the lessons of history dooms us to repeat them. 21st century humans make the same mistake as all humans throughout history, in misguided belief that the present moment represents the pinnacle of human experience, knowledge, and endeavour. This delusional belief gives the perceived authority of enlightenment above all who have ever lived.
As a result, people have loose thinking, short term assumptions without greater personal systems of attempting to understand political and philosophical realities, and little understanding of the consequences of major actions within or beyond their own lifetime. The presumed authority allows all possibilities and negates individual freedom in pursuit of a ‘greater good’ decided by a minority within majority demographics.
The intentions of the good yet misguided people who become everyday authoritarians is well summed up by the C.S. Lewis quote:
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be "cured" against one's will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.”
Personally, I’ve been called a callous killer for daring to dance at a bar, to sing, to advocate for speaking to people on public transport. As a disabled person, I’m told I should always have to wear identification of my exemptions on my person, to be shown consistently throughout the day, a free target for harassment and abuse. People in general are willing to do whatever it takes to rid themselves of the virus infecting the body of the state (Hitlerian philosophy). In panic, the desire to find an equitable solution leads to the kind of risk overcompensation we currently suffer the irrationality of.
In their fervour, they don’t see authoritarian streaks coming out, because they have always been on the cusp of becoming fully-fledged authoritarians. Ergo, their behaviour is seen as a simple evolving continuation of the values they’ve always believed to be good, since they are good, morally superior people. This may be why people incessantly call each other ‘idiots, stupid, morons’ because they are the ones who know, and everyone else needs to be controlled for their own sake.
As time goes by, for many the only real option is to continue sinking cost, and to further put up barriers to self-reflection and criticism. This creates traumatic cognitive dissonance, which is very difficult to reason with in short order. Many will crave more mandates, bans, compulsions and diktats whilst believing themselves even more superior than the day before. Historically this grandiosity leads to severe mortal consequence. It is the mistaken belief that we are different or more evolved, that will ironically lead us to the most base, primitive behaviour. This mistaken belief that one is especially moral may be precisely what makes one susceptible to actualising their authoritarianism.
This virtuous safety can come at the persecution of minorities for their ‘common good.’ As you may see, some of the most vitriolic supporters of our current authoritarianism use regurgitated talking points, whilst advocating for abuse of dissenters from orthodoxy at the least, to near-genocide at worst. If they had power for a day, especially now, like Hitler they could become a working-class hero to the masses, the arbiter of common sense at last. A narcissist for a co-dependent.
The authoritarian personality is not to be confused with the authoritarian enabler. A chunk of the population living in apathy and wilful ignorance will accept and mould around any system, even the most horrifying, including compliance in genocide. Trauma can be so repressed that people will do anything to avoid thinking about it or facing reality, hence the dominance of materialism and distraction through compulsive entertainment mediums.
Evolutionarily speaking, it may be that the authoritarian mindset is completely normal and natural, and that the individual freedoms we may have briefly enjoyed were an unsustainable experiment. Repeating brutality may be an intrinsic and unavoidable cycle. The remedy to the authoritarian personality may be illumination. People generally are good, but we are all susceptible to entering the trance of especially strong-willed authoritarians. What keeps many from speaking that goodness to power is a ‘tyranny of manners’ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GP6mApouvAw&t=736s [12:16 - 12:56]) that keeps us from risking social and financial rejection, and as a result of lockdown measures, state prosecution. Many simply don’t understand the consequences of their desire or apathy writ large on reality. They are not evil or malicious, they are scared, powerless, subsumed by dislocation of what was promised to be an unchangeable ‘normal’ reality. It is the banality of tyranny.
Modernity puts us in a perfect storm for authoritarianism on a wide scale. An invisible existential threat, isolation, lack of education, overwhelming external influence through social media, weak family and interpersonal dynamics. A core human strength is the ability to adapt to almost any condition, but the danger is this adaptability can allow us to accept de-evolution into primitive states. There are many studies that show the true malleability of the human mind, and our deep susceptibility to propaganda and manipulation. Many people don’t seem to need the vast amount of rights and freedoms they have enjoyed, and have shown over the decades how willing they are to give up anything for ‘an easy life.’ The authoritarian readily declares that they are the victim, doing what is necessary through their own unaware abuse.
We must all question whether we are slipping into our authoritarian nature, and do what we can to allow those who have fallen into the trap the opportunity to figure out that quite often we suffer from delusion wrapped up in ego defences. The first step is admitting it. Reality is scary and requires grieving, but it is closer to truth than allowing cognitive distortions the impetus to continue building justification for a story of unquestionable and rigid beliefs.
Many authoritarians are too entrenched to be reached, they are dangerous. Many enablers are too far gone, or never had the capacity to begin with, and will sway with any fetid breeze. I’ve been trying to get those afflicted to follow through on their policy ideas to see where the slippery slope goes, yet challenging them to admit these are authoritarian steps has led to massive pushback, because the perceived threat takes prevalence over all other moral concerns. It seems to be that as people believe the end justifies the means, any amount of horror towards that goal is acceptable, any denial a viable excuse. Their hearts seem to be in the right place, it is just their minds that are compromised into unreality through overwhelming and incessant fear programming. It is that very desire to care for others that sabotages.
Our essential goodness can be more powerful than our latent authoritarianism, but it takes work. We must continuously question ourselves, admit we all fit on the spectrum, and compassionately offer ways for those entrapped to recognise the natural susceptibility to authoritarianism. Such a challenge threatens their assumption of intrinsic goodness, which can cause regression into limbic reaction when backed into a logical cul-de-sac. There’s no telling what horrors a person may commit if it meant the safety of their loved ones, so tread carefully on their [distorted] core values.
Our present and future humanity depends on our ability to illuminate whoever we can that good intentions under duress foments the natural inclination towards authoritarianism. To heal we need to become aware that the unintended consequences of such hubris and lethargy will take people further away from the kind of inclusive and caring world we all want to create.
