Lost in the Grid

Deep, dark, drum ‘n’ bass. Tinny, delicate fast beat intro, joined by D’n’B beats and a chilling build on glacial synths. Full beat drops, womps over a harsh electronic beat sample , glassy and hard. Laser beats and vocal samples shoot through, building a tense, claustrophobic atmosphere. Dark, threatening and strange, a nightmarish soundscape, like a post-apocalyptic world of malfunctioning technology gone rogue.
