Warpaint Records has been doing it big in 2016. Their steady stream of singles has kept listeners on their toes, and this week they added another EP to their release catalogue. Noya’s Arcturus EP marks Warpaint’s third official EP, sticking to the established pattern of two-track releases. Following up his free-release single earlier in May, Noya is bringing some welcomed new additions to the world of heavy bass music.
The title-track, Arcturus, offers an aural dichotomy of euphoria and aggression. The melodically atmospheric intro builds in to a flurry of growls and bass. After bringing back in the energetic melodies in the mid-song breakdown, the madness returns one more time to navigate listeners through the tumultuous waters of dubstep.
The second track of the Arcturus EP, Kill Them All, kicks the intensity up even higher than its counterpart – by about 30 bpm to be exact. While still keeping it in the same realm of bass music, Kill Them All delivers heavy drum and bass vibes to contrast the dub. The similarly melodic intro gives way to some powerfully staggering drum breaks and neuro bass.

Noya is supplying the masses with some much-needed aggressive music in a time where “feel good” tunes are in oversupply. He and the Warpaint Tribe understand the need to balance the scales of EDM, complimenting the light with the dark.
