The Untouchables give us a mesmerisingly, hypnotic groove driven track called ‘Silence Your EGO’. This is available on the well respected Samurai Music. This track is simply infectious and will have you swaying as if under a trance. It’s spooky and dark, yet inviting and amazingly sculpted with some excellent sound design. I’ve listened to it several times round and really love the way the sounds are mixed and positioned against each other.

I really enjoyed the movement in the drums and the tones that swell from low down and up through the reverberant highs. The vocal chant is really cool and is possibly one of the sounds that gives this such a sinister edge at times. As the music progresses, that mesmerising beat is still pounding along keeping you moving. Brilliant track, check it out ๐Ÿ™‚ Its part of their EP – Mutations.

Available on Samurai Music, this track has groove, ambience and leans towards a more sinister vibe. Kwartz has an amazing talent from drum production with the percussion and energy continuously developing and driving the track forward. Each drum sound is perfectly crafted to cut through the wall of sound, and tail off in to the background with itโ€™s reverb or delay pattern. The percussion is positioned all around the stereo field which makes it a joy to listen to. This sounds awesome on all sound systems I have played it through – a really inspiring mix.

The rest of the instruments fall in to a drone type category, pulsating in and out of the drums and ambience. The texture and tonality of the low end bass part, and the pads, is really rich and filters through a gritty energy in the track. There are other sweeping sounds that come in and out that are really cool in the way that they pull your attention away from the rest of the mix and over to one side of the stereo field before dropping you right back in to the centre of the mix. I love this track and I am really inspired by most of the output from Samurai Music.
