Modern classic release, these tunes have been played at nearly every imaginable d&b event the past few years.
With "The plague" being the usual pick. This track starts with a typical keaton-type rolling beat and builds up a brooding atmosphere into the massive drop where it turns into the dancefloor killer that is "The plague". A very recognizable synth-hook and two bass patterns are the core of the track which makes it a bit too straight forward. It sounds a bit like a virus release on speed, but that not being bad in this case.
On the B, we have the under appreciated "Resolution" which is the better of the two tracks. Again starting out with a recognizable keaton-esque beat, this one doesnt turn all dark that soon. After a while into the intro the moody melody and the female vocals enter, and it all blends perfectly. After the drop a pretty deep bass is layered underneath and the beat breaks and switches intricately, slowly building towards the massive second drop. In the breakdown the atmosphere turns grim and when it all comes back in again everything sounds dark and turned up another notch. Very good track, recommended release
