Integral 035 reveals a new mysterious new act to the label, taking the project to new heights as the next production outfit to the tribe. Meet Mohican Sun and their immense debut 'Dead Sea' EP. Set to cause a real stir with their unique take on the DnB sound, this brand new collaboration project includes artists from the original camp plus additional members. Kicking off the new EP, the epic sounds of ‘Where Did You Go’ instantly capture. In it’s first few plays, tastemakers in the scene are already hyping this emotive and uplifting future soul DnB anthem. The sultry, subdued vocals set against stunning musicality and extra-large bass make for an ultra powerful and beautiful dancefloor groove. As UKF perfectly sum it up, “It’s all strings and wins”... Next up, the title track ‘Dead Sea’ is lethal subterranean heaviness. The tribal intro suddenly drops into a monstrous underwater destroyer with its sub frequency bassline and percussive programming set to cause instant shockwaves in the form of frenzied head nodding / moves. Hold tight for many rewinds on this one! * ‘Sudden Change’ switches the mood back to beauty. This smooth, new wave soul tune vibes off raffinated funk. Fronted with infectious vocal licks and filtered hooks, the layers of jazz-inspired melodies and warm bass are simply stunning.
