Release | C4C - Battlecruiser / Moongerm (Pythius Remix) | C4C
‘Battlecruiser' gradually moves itself forward on cranking drum patterns and slowly creeping synths cutting through the mix, edging out its atmospherics and then crashing forward on its grating snare. Every bass note stabs into the composition, with subs rattling each beat, resulting in you becoming more tightly gripped with every relay and layer. Pythius delivers his raw, unfaltering musicianship, whilst Optiv & CZA help to conjure the darkest elements of drum & bass, which they helped to create. This is a stark blend of old school and new, demonstrating C4C's contemporary standards and elevated understanding of the realm they reign over.
Pythius then goes on to rework Cause4Concern's ‘Moongerm' for the flipside, nodding to its predecessor whilst utilising his own driving, colossal production and heavyweight breakdowns. Exorcizing the intimidating, creeping dynamics which made the original so daunting, Pythius then allows the track to explode into a drop that explains why both his DJ sets and output are gaining so much attention. With a hook that snares you between breaks, the artist gives a dancefloor twist to an already drivingly aggressive anthem. Darkly underpinned yet still providing a record that'll make every nerve ending twitch in the club, Pythius becomes a welcome addition to C4C's discography.
C4C has always been about drawing out the scene's most exciting prospects, as well as its already established creators. This single acts as a microcosm for that ethos and the imprint never fails to impress with their selections.
