MUST DIE! has done it again! The hugely versatile producer and DJ signed to Never Say Die has just dropped his “Neo Tokyo” EP, and it’s one of the most extraordinary things we’ve heard this year. Blending a series of Asian influenced melodies with dramatic dubstep elements, Lee Bates has pulled off something that won’t be forgotten in a hurry.
The collection opens with the aptly named “Onii-Chan”, a delicate balance between super sweet melody and aggressive bass shudders. The title track provides some wonderfully charismatic vocals, whilst “Fan Service” is a multi-layered effort that just keeps bringing something new to the table. “Ebi” (Shrimp) rounds off proceedings, with a driving sense of urgency.
We can’t get enough of this provocative selection – if you feel the same, you can grab a copy here.
