Happy Halloween!! I hope everyone is feeling festive today (and past weekend)! I bagged myself a last minute “costume’ for handing out sugar bombs to the tykes this evening while the vampirish Antik One spins on our porch. He’s been cooking up some ultra creep-step for the kiddos, and this week’s NAPCast fits nicely with that vibe.
Die~Verse submitted his first NAPCast in July with a wicked Jungle set. His return makes no apologies about being along that same vein. As it shouldn’t. This thing is straight fire. Another example of the happy harmony that Jungle and Footwork/Juke are in, and done with careful attention to details. Die-Verse drops that ultra vibey dark dub style like it’s second nature to him. I got severely lost in this mix a couple times…and then a couple more. But with the Night of Dead upon us, this was the type of groove I was looking for. Exaggerated bass lines help build that tension, ya hear? He might actually be crate digging in the same places as Antik with some of the more unusual footwork tracks he brings in at the midpoint. Very atmospheric and nuanced with tight rolls filling in behind synth melodies. Consider this NAP DNB’s special treat for all our maniacal tricksters out there, before we send you head strong in to the night to terrorize your neighborhoods I’m sure. Just remember, this mix is best served with Reese’s Cups and the blood of mortals!
