Next on Martyn’s 3024 imprint is the hotly coveted monster ‘Pyramid’ by Instra:Mental. Over the last few months Pyramid has been generating considerable hype as a carefully selected number of DJs have been dropping it in all the right places. For me it was SCB’s exemplarily XLR8R Podcast 193 that bought it to my attention.
Built around a solid 4/4 beat Pyramids main riff pulses back and forth from sub-bass to lead hook whilst lush pads fill the backdrop until the track drops everything for a sinister sounding lead synth line and lone kick drum before building the tension back up with layers of percussion, beats and the pulsing lead riff. All in all a great track and well worth you attention.
To my knowledge a release date is yet to be confirmed.
