Having risen up the ranks over the course of last year, The Prototypes have been busying themselves back in the studio preparing for the next onslaught. After their track ‘Born To Rise’ and high profile remixes for the likes of Snoop Dogg and Ed Sheeran, they now let rip with what is possibly some of their most explosive work yet. During a recent Vs battle with Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1, Friction almost blew up the building when he dropped ‘Pandora’, his set opener of choice for the past few months.
Now with Zane playing it himself this is a lesson in turbo-charged bass music for 2012; a potential power-house of earth-shaking D&B ready to crumble dance floors across the land. ‘Abyss’ then takes you into some heavy stepping territory with one the snappiest swing beats we’ve heard in a long time. After the ominous intro of cinematic pads and classic space-warped vocal, the track drops hard into a full-on stabbing mid-range assault that drags you squarely into the future.
