Toyfon – Shadowdance EP

Toyfon —  2019 / 4 Tracks / Neuropunk Records / NRPFRG002

TOYFON emerges from the fires of the NEUROPUNK RECORDINGS forge for NRPFRG002, the latest in the label’s series that places a firm focus on new & rising names in Drum & Bass. With previous releases on labels including Paperfunk, Invasion, Refraction Music & more, TOYFON now brings his warped tones to the NEUROPUNK recordings as he delivers a set of four tracks packed with his own distinctive sound.

SHADOWDANCE provides a cinematic introduction to the EP with its umbral pads, from within which rises a grinding metallic bassline that winds its way through the track atop a driving drumbeat. MALEDICTION follows as a slice of jungle influenced tech, merging glassy textures with a breakbeat rhythm that rings out cyclically alongside a malevolent bassline. The ominous incantation of THREAT’s vocal sample then sets its fluid bassline into frenzied action, spurring forth a sonic assault that flanks its roaring low end with fluttering high frequencies. The innocuously named PUPPY ends the EP with a razor sharp canid bassline, which rips its way through the track’s sparse atmosphere atop a stripped down percussive rhythm to great effect.

In making his NEUROPUNK RECORDINGS debut for NRPFRG002, TOYFON delivers a decisive display in sonic force built upon the tones of his uniquely distorted sonics, carving out new territory within the landscape of Neurofunk DNB with a set of tracks wrought directly from the flames of the NEUROPUNK forge.
