Feint revels in lofty drum ‘n’ bass disorder with ‘Defiant’ EP

Feint revels in lofty drum ‘n’ bass disorder with ‘Defiant’ EPFeint Defiant 1

Feint‘s lengthy love affair with ubiquitous drum ‘n’ bass domain, Liquicity, lives on. His myriad of releases with the legendary, YouTube-oriented label housing stretches into 2018 with the three-track Defiant EP, which includes an auspicious instrumental cut of his capstone Liquicity collaboration with Koven, “Take It In.”

The EP serves to satiate listeners who recognize Feint’s “Whatever I Do” remix (originally released by Cartoon) which he debuted inside his fiercely streamed, 99-track UFK Podcast circa 2016. In this rendition, Feint revs up the Amen breaks and blasts the bass line from a subdued echo to a rogue wave of euphoric urgency. Pushing the deliciously delirious tone onward, Laura Brehm’s seasoned Liquicity lungs breathe a chimerical cloud atop the EP’s title track, serving as the pinnacle of the collection’s nuanced lifeblood by offering a rushing dissonance paired with wistful guitar interludes. The work as a whole illustrates Feint’s inexorable ability to thrust listeners through a number of halcyon soundscapes in a matter of mere minutes.
