No.ko - War

Catalog: IAR081
Release date: 2021-14-03

Since debuting on Insane Ambition Recordings last year, Montpelier's No.Ko has proven himself to be one of their most valued regulars—with his new two-tracker, ''War'', serving as a timely reminder of this burgeoning talent's drum and bass production prowess.

Kicking off the new release is its title track, ''War'', a veritable neurofunk stomper which finds garbled basslines colliding with mottled, metallic synths and pounding drums to great effect. Rhythmically keeping listeners on their toes with a combination of all-out carnage and halftime switch-ups, it serves as one of the rising star's busiest and heaviest arrangements to date.

Also present is the comparatively melodic ''Enemy'', which opens with snarling, modulated synth plucks and winding FX before descending into jagged drops centred around gnarly sound design and pitch-bending chaos. Made for good soundsystems, this rollercoaster of a tune is not for the faint-hearted.

With more en route imminently including select unreleased tunes teased via his SoundCloud, it's looking like this could be No.Ko's biggest year yet.

''War'' is available on Beatport and Spotify from 14 March, hitting other download stores and streaming services a fortnight later on 28 March.

One love from Ia Fam'
