Knife Party’s last EP was definitely one of the best releases in the Dubstep world this past year. Their track “Internet Friends” crossed over from just being a hit amongst Dubstep fans to being played by big name DJ’s in every EDM sub genre. Based on the huge success of their last EP their follow up had very big shoes to fill. I honestly didn’t think their next EP could top “100% No Modern Talking” but their latest release “Rage Valley EP” definitely tops it. They showcase a deeper Dubstep sound on these tracks, which i’m very fond of. Each track sounds different and each incorporate different elements. The track “Rage Valley” is the closest to the sound they had on their previous EP. They throw in a drum break down at certain points of the track and then incorporate different snare sounds to maintain the drum feel, which gives it a nice touch. Another track on the EP is “Centipede”, which most people heard them play in their Ultra set. Without knowing I actually heard this track for the first time this weekend at EDC NYC. Nero played this towards the end of their set and once I heard the intro I thought to myself “Where did they find this??”. Knife Party is known to experiment with different concepts and vocals on their tracks, and the track “Centipede” pretty much falls in to that category. The track starts off like the beginning of a documentary you’d see on National Geographic, with a voice talking about centipedes and how centipedes attack tarantula’s. It’s definitely random but the drop on this track is sick and the deepest track on the EP sound wise. If you’re a Dubstep fan, give this EP a listen, you wont be disappointed.
