Drum And Bass
  1. Liberation (with Emperor)
  2. Headtop (feat Chimpo)
  3. Circles (feat Sam Wills)
  4. Mosquito
Review: Not seen since his debut album Machines was released on Critical in late 2012, St Petersburg's best Drum and Bass exponent Enei resurfaces in double plated fashion with the Liberation EP. Despite the absence, Aleksei Egorchenkov is on fine form for Critical here, experimenting with new tempos and new collaborators without any hint of sacrificing his skills for raw, next level drum and bass. Fellow Critical producer Emperor, Mancunian vocalist and producer Chimpo and singer songwriter Sam Wills feature across the two slabs of wax, with the tempo shifting "Headtop" featuring Chimpo a standout track.

Review: Russia's D&B golden boy Enei hasn't released a bunk tune since he first emerged on Fokuz and Subway almost five years ago. So let's face it; he's not about to change this habit on his debut solo album. Yup, Machines is every bit - and club ready - as you'd expect it to be. Immersive bass depths laced with industrial force and just the right balance between clinical mastery and raw soul, it's Enei at his least bunk ever. Highlights include the hymnal dark bouncer "The Moment" (with DRS), the Reinforced-meets-"Up All Night" flavours of "Elephant" and the stark minimal theory of "Trainchaser".

Cat: CRIT 076. Rel: 03 Jun 14
Drum And Bass
  1. Goliath (feat DRS)
  2. The Artefact
  3. Prometheus
  4. Hotplate
Review: Russian D&B supremo Enei returns with his first full EP since his epic debut album Machines in late 2012. As you'd expect, it's yet another masterclass in solid rhythm and industrial strength sound design. "Goliath" opens the ceremony with a distinctive sermon from MC-du-jour DRS. As the title suggests, it's majestically monolithic. Further in we're bombarded with demonstrative dynamics; the techno-like loopiness of "Hotplate", the dramatic, rim-shot-striking tantalisation on "The Artefact" and the slimy, sludgy half-time twists on "Prometheus". Will Enei ever make a bad record? We somehow doubt it. Get to know.

Drum And Bass
  1. Stonehead
  2. No Fear (feat Riya)
  3. Moving Fast
  4. Cracker (feat Eastcolors & Noel - Jubei remix)
Review: Kasra's Critical Audio is once again the showcase for the distinct production talents of Russia's Enei, serving up Stonehead, a four track selection presented across this heavy weight double 12 pack. All the hallmarks of an Enei arrangement are here, as the title track sets the mood with rigid click clacking rhythms dextrously rippling over beams of aggressive dark side bass. This sense of aggravation is matched by the vocal sample that literally barks at you. "No Fear" operates on a similar level, Riya's vocal contribution aligned with the tight stepping syncopation. Those seeking some sort of classic drum and bass solace will find respite in the amen heavy tear out sensation of "Moving Fast" and Jubei's rattling refix of "Cracker".

Just One Look/Bad Proof (Rituals Album Sampler)
Cat: CRIT 085. Rel: 22 Oct 15
Drum And Bass
  1. Just One Look (feat Charli Brix) (4:55)
  2. Bad Proof (5:19)
Review: Russian D&B mastermind Enei is about to deliver his second album Rituals and if this sampler is anything to go by, we're in for a treat of industrial strength proportions. "Just One Look" shows Enei's more sentimental, emotional side as Charli adds a sense of soul that he's usually kept at arms distance in the past but we'll hopefully hear more of in the future. "Bad Proof" is more like the mechanical hell-raiser we first saw enter the game in 2008 - neuro-edged and heavier than a coachload of 80s darts players, Enei is on banging form and his album should be a next level deal.

  3. Enei & Particle - "Fame" (feat Jakes) (4:39)
  4. Enei - "Rollin Machine" (4:34)
Review: We can happily confirm that Enei is in startingly good form on his first solo release for nigh on 12 months, delivering a quartet of cuts rich in bombastic bass, punchy D&B drums and his usual aggressive, forthright electronic sounds. He hits the ground running with opener "Voices", a peak-time ready affair where quick-shot Amen fills and echoing vocal snippets occasionally punctuate a typically rolling affair, before reaching for one of the biggest and darkest basslines known to humankind on the enormous "Recoil". Veteran Bristol mic man Jakes lends his distinctive rap flow to hot-stepping Particle collaboration "Fame", while skittish closing cut "Rollin Machine" very much lives up to its title.

  3. Iron Curtain (Fre4knc remix) (4:14)
Review: Rituals was a game changer LP for Enei. A chance to showcase a wickedly wide side to his repertoire, few knew how soulful the man behind some of the heaviest Russian tech D&B in recent times could be. Critical have ensured the quality is respected with three precision remixes; Break adds his relaxed, loose-groove charm to the goosebumping "Homeworld", Signal takes the sensuous roller "Just One Look" 20,000 leagues under the sea with pneumatic drums and textured vocals while Fre4knc irons out the gritty creases on the still-thunderous "Iron Curtain" for a well-oiled mechanical funk session. Three serious remixes and a nice reminder to listen to the album again.

  4. Enei & Eastcolors - "Jungle Business" (5:00)
Review: St Petersburg drum and bass producer presents us with his fourth album of high tech engineered drum and bass, guaranteed to deliver some serious future shock. There's some real dystopian themes overshadowing this album, but Aleksei Ergachevnov has the right knack for sound design to pull of the concept and album as a whole. There's some undeniable influences from some of the masters of the craft, such as Ed Rush and Optical and Peshay, but he's definitely representing the new garde of breakbeat science pretty damn well. Highlights include the subterranean sonar transmissions of "Iron Curtain", the jazzy liquid breaks of "Moment Of Now (feat Frank Carter III", the evil futurist minimalism of "Just One Look (Feat. Charli Brix)" and the peak time destroyer "Between The Split". One for the heads.

Review: Not content with scooping up all the plaudits for Rockwell's recent killer Aria double twelve - you heard the Untold collab right? - Critical Sounds go East and go hard with this brutal tech step collab between Estonia's Enei and Russian's Noel and Eastcolours. "Cracker" twists screaming sub bass around crisp metallic syncopation and rolling snares that crash around brilliantly. On the flip Enei goes solo on the clipped digital half step of "Danger Dance" that demonstrates a schizophrenic understanding of beat programming that's reminiscent of Bricolage era Amon Tobin married with the contemporary sonic aesthetics of the aforementioned Jack Dunning.

  2. Enei & Mefjus - "Crawlers"
Review: A tasty little teaser piece from his album Machines, here Enei calls up Eastcolours and Noel to revisit their 2011 hit "Cracker". Spacing out the darkness with a pneumatic bass plunge and more emphasis on the percussion it's more than worthy of its VIP status. Meanwhile on the B we find a brand new, non-album track "Crawlers". A tag-team with Mefjus, there's added edge and paranoia that gives it more than a faint whiff of Black Sun Empire. Tasty!

Review: Christmas comes early for fans of Critical output as the label presents a luxurious double 12" various artists EP that bristles with talent from their razor sharp roster. Enei, DRS, Ulterior Motive, Phace, Jubei and label boss Kasra himself all feature on the killer Sequence One EP. Enei opens proceedings with the 24th century slab of future funk that is "Obsession", featuring typically dextrous lyrical assistance from MC DRS, whilst Ulterior Motive plunges you into the dark side with the jagged roller "Divergence". The second slab opens with "Freedom Of Filth" an equally jerky, industrially charged hard stepper whilst "The Rift" sees Kasra and Jubei get their sub bass on with immense consequences.

Review: A king selector and respected label director first and foremost, Critical bossman Kasra doesn't dish out sonic sermons very often. But when he does, it's always worth paying attention. Especially when Russian demon Enei is on board, too. Five tracks in total, we range from the swampy half time sludge of "Inside The Box" to the early Metalheadz ice and depth plunge breaks of "Words" via the peaktime heads down stepper "Arcana". The real highlight, though, is "Overthinking". Haunted pianos, ghostly breakbeat flickers and paranoid poetry from everyone's favourite MC, DRS, this is up there with "Count To 10". Yeah, it's that good.

Review: 2014 sees Kasra's Critical Music reach its twelfth year of serving up crucial future thinking drum and bass for the heads and the hips, and the label are opening proceedings for a landmark year in requisite fashion. The 19 track Underground Sonics label compilation is out later this month across various formats and features contributions from Noisia, Dub Phizix, Enei, Phace, Sam Binga and Kasra himself. This 12" sampler is a nice vinyl shaped taster for that compilation and long term Critical Music fans will be pleased to see the Kasra and Enei collaboration "Breath" sitting on the A Side, with the track a long time request for release! Down below Emperor drops the pressure with the low riding roller "Control".

Review: Critical Music's second Underground Sonics collection was a game-changer back in 2014 and the sounds it sports to this day remain just as ahead of the curve. Case in point; "Repentance" from one certified dream duo Mefjus and InsideInfo. Rolling tech drama with more space than the NASA museum, this still absolutely pounds the system and always will. Enei's "Slender" tickles similar sonic sweet spots but with more funk in the break and subs so juicy you could panic buy them for years and they'd never run out.
