This heavy-bass roller is a definite dancefloor hit. The intro begins with that signature Von D sound. The brief 16bar intro drops into an “ear catching” synth melody which alongside the rhythmic drum pattern gives it a tribal feel.
The bassline is heavy weight and as often Von D get the balance just right.
Signed off by the Wicked Pharaoh sample this is definitely Von D raising the levels once again.
Kush – Von D & JB
Kush produced by Von D and Copenhagen’s JB is another roller but this time slighter deeper. Keeping in line with the EP's vibe, this track is rich in ambience with atmospheric chords balanced with an industrial hypnotic synth and heavy sub bass. The lively percussion and skippy beats keep the track moving. A great production from the duo.
Everytime is another example of Von D at his best. The track begins with the jazzy and slightly mysterious intro accompanied with smooth vocals which leads you to believe the track is going down the melo route. The drop is pleasantly surprising as it drops into Von D's finely-tuned balance of dirty synths, soulful chords and weighty bass. Another dancefloor roller by the prolific producer.
