Snap Shot & Chimpos: Dooms VIP reviewed on latest edition of Trap Magazine!

Review: “It’s an all-Mancunian affair here. From the buttons to the mic, Snap Shot’s productions are dark and simplistic, allowing space for the MC’s to compliment them with aplomb. Tonn Piper – a staple in the northern D&B community – generally opts for a spoken-word approach, while the ever-diverse Chimpo rides the riddim, skilfully striking a balance between profanity and comedy.”

Nian Dub review by Luke McCarthy

Screen shot 2013-12-04 at 10.54.52

Here I introduce Nian Dub, a duo from Manchester, given their first release by NB Audio. It has featured vocals from FOX who has had previous release on the likes of Critical and Soul:R. It is set to be released December 16th and is the perfect blend of sounds.  Get your sub ready – the frequencies are low.

The EP starts with ‘Aftermath’ featuring FOX. In terms of progression and beat building the track is very simplistic but the delivery is executed well. It’s deep, dark and minimal – a good tune to build the crowd in your sets.

The boys make great use of low frequency sub bass and haunting, atmospheric samples to create the dark vibe. These sorts of tunes do tend to have good success with in the scene and this could be most people’s favourite from the EP.

‘Aftermath’ is followed by ‘Deliverance’. If you weren’t a fan of the more stripped back vibe of the opening track then this may tickle your fancy a little more. Its amen-break heavy and the focus is way more on the percussion that the bass. It’s always good to see artists switch it up on EP’s, there’s nothing worse than an EP sounding like three or four remixes of the same track.

Again, a little more progression would’ve been nice but they break the track down well and take it in a slightly different direction on the second drop. They give the reece bass a much more prominent role while the amen-break stills rolls out. Main criticism of this track is the main kicks and snares could be more powerful to real solidify the beat.

Onto ‘Antaeus’ and once again Nian are displaying real variation. The amen is less outstanding and a little more subtle. The focus here is on the different sounds with a low and consistent bass line flowing underneath it all. This track is a little more techy than the previous two and is probably the sound they could improve on the most. Very reminiscent of Ulterior Motive/ Octane and DLR.

The style of ‘Jazz Craft’ is far more unique than the previous tracks. It can be very easy to get this sort of hybrid sound wrong and create something that doesn’t blend the two sounds well together. The boys have done it well though – a flirtatious sax is the main sound throughout and seems to be in conversation with a reece heavy bass hit.

They’ve toned down the drums to suit the vibe of the piece and have really hit an authecntic sound. They’ve combined two different sounds extremely well and the second drop is where it gets really interesting. They bring in much more tech sounds, keep the sax going and bring up the drums slightly more. Here the boys are showing they can build a beat in a composed fashion.

The penultimate track ‘Step Out’ is made for the club. The main bass hit that introduces the track almost sounds as though it’s going to be a dark style tech-house tune. Then the beat drops. Rolling at 140bpm this track takes you to a much grimier place.

The rhythm is created through the rolling percussion but your head is nodding to the bouncing bass. No dubstep track would be complete without the slightly nastier bass hits but the boys leave it until the second drop to introduce these. If you were part of the scene when dubstep first hit the clubs you’ll love this.

Finally we are treated to ‘Almighty Dub’. A ragga dub influenced track complete with brass, raw bass and funk guitar. This track is made for sunny days, lazy nights and clouded heads. The Jamaican vocalist finishes it off perfectly and it’s a great track to finish the EP and a statement that says ‘we’re not scared to try anything’.
