Evol Intent at the Gashaus

Evol Intent at the gashaus?

It was a major weekend for the Singapore Junglist as Heavy weight Evol Intent dropped by our sunny island at the tail end of their tour. Gigantor, one third of the drum and bass trio and co-founder of Evol Intent Recordings in 2000 with Knick, broke the beats with unstoppable force as he ascended to the set at 1am in the Gashaus.

The jovial Giant from Alanta was true to the incendiary jungle sound with an almost hardcore arsenal of Rinse-out tunes, serrated with jagged synths and lightning flicks of the crossfader- there were some rather spectacular gating effects midway through the set, although Gigantor disappointingly spun down and rewound too many times for the momentum to reach a psychotic critical velocity, as is typical fare for Evol carnage.

Gigantor shared the set with Indonesian MC/Producer/DJ DMZ and was heralded by the combined troop of Inner Nation and Heavy Artillery troopers Livewire, JK, Pseudo and Clart of Setup fame. "This is a great atmosphere!" Said Sean (Livewire), remarking on the bouncing bodies paying homage to one of the hardest Drum and Bass icons to grace the island.

Gashaus's surprise decision to have the entry to the venue via the rear alleyway and boarding up the windows enhanced the underground vibe. Other local drum and bass heroes such as 'General' Vortex from Exitmusik, Kiat (formerly resident of Rouge) and Daniel from the DYI crew were also gleefully in attendance.?We're still shaking!

Thinky says: Babes frantically dancing (jiggling) to 170 beats per minute and a resonating bassline that shook the ceiling tiles.

Thinky saya again: Sitting down to drum and bass? You need more alcohol.
