As a producer, Icicle’s technicality is kind of unparalleled. Poised and measured he’s impeccably frequencially balanced and ever so meticulous. In short, his attention to detail is impressive to say the very least. It’s a style of proficiency that the Dutch producer has demonstrated consistently throughout his discography of critically acclaimed material (which includes two phenomenal artist albums, Under The Ice and Entropy, which were both released on Shogun Audio).
Combining the hard-edge dancefloor sensibilities of Mejus’s rugged bassline science and breakbeat programming with Rido’s cinematic musicality and ear for melodic and harmonic ideas, the Optimum Trajectory EP is an almost game changing event for Blackout. Using clipped, powerful, cybertronic drums, to power the tunes forward along with neuro reese basslines that topple a skyscraper, Mefjus and Rido have created a cogent four player that will – hyperbole aside –literally melt your entire head.
