Owlybeats | The Dark Volume 3



"Owlybeats is back with a new five track instrumental ep “The Dark (Vol.3)”

The first track “Bane” is filled with ambience in its build up before taking on a harder tone whilst still keeping the setting it built up at the beginning very much alive through its use of bass and synths, playing around the tone set by the tune with sounds fading in and out throughout the whole tune.

The second track “Evil Face” takes on a more futuristic feel with hard saw synths coming in at vastly different pitches setting the tone for the tune whilst the VOX and brass create a lot of the impact that the sound comes with and bringing that classic Grime sound to it.

The third track “Pace” is set around highly distorted ambient sounds before coming in with hard futuristic orchestral type synths and roaring 808s creating a sound scape that really stands out, everything comes together on this tune perfectly and the pacing that the tune takes on is also reminiscent of old school Grime instrumentals such as Dexplicit Forward Riddim / POW creating a mix between classic and futuristic.

The fourth track “Dark Schemes” takes on a less impactful tone with more sounds being left to play out which gives it that extra eerie sound as they play off each other in different ways and leave a lot of open space behind them, something we don’t see as much of in Grime music.

The final track is a remix of DJ Garna’s classic Grime tune “Magik Circle” with Owly bringing his style to it, the tune takes on a much harder vibe than the original as some of the electric synths just run through the tunes sound scape and has your attention constantly shifting while listening, this is another great example of classic meeting futuristic in a tune however the classic Grime sound is constant throughout this tune with gliding squares and classic drums fading throughout the whole tune making for a nostalgic listen without moving away from what Owly does best.

Owly’s style has always been amazing when it comes to setting an atmosphere with his music and you could envision a lot of things whilst taking in his music. This project is no different with dystopian, futuristic soundscapes meeting classic high energy Grime sounds, this mix of styles is becoming increasingly more popular recently when it comes to recent instrumental releases and will continue to grow through these producer’s wor
