Release: June 1, 2017
Label: eMBi Limited
eMBI Music continues its stunning good form of late, this time courtesy of Italian production pair, Neverdogs. Renowned for their close association with Marco Carola and his scene-defining Music on Night, Neverdogs showcase their production skills in inimitable fashion here; displaying the sort of prowess that no doubt brought them to the attention of Marco & co in the first place.
The Brain Rebellion EP kicks off with the title track. A frenzied affair that’s full of suspense, it’s layered with smart drum work and a vocal snippet that weaves in and out throughout. However, it’s the melody that proves the track’s highpoint, bringing it to higher planes as the track reaches a crescendo. A bubbling track that makes all the right noises, its charming outlook is sure to win it admirer aplenty this summer.
The first of the EP’s remixes comes from Franz Costa & Forstyseven, who turn in a more tech house inspired remix. Latching on the aforementioned melodies only occasionally, their interpretation is notable for its heads down approach and an uncompromising dedication to the ‘floor. The second half of the EP showcases Neverdogs’ more relentless style with considerable panache ‘Now I See’ ups the intensity with some aplomb. A real dancefloor destroyer, this one is sure to prompt pandemonium wherever it’s unleashed. Culminating matters is Frankfurt’s Drag & Drops, with a wild interpretation of “Now I See”. Full of canny vocal samples and as unpredictable as they come, it rounds off the release with the sort of esteem that’s evident throughout here. Limited to 200 vinyl copies, eMBI’s latest is another high point in a catalogue that continues to impress.
