The explosive, cinematic EP from the newest member of the Shifty Rhythms family

"Outpost as a whole curates a brooding feel to it, an honorable tip-of-the-hat to the dark side – if you will. The opening track, 'Hours,' kicks things off with very simple but somber guitar plucks, setting the dark feel to the track from the start. Things pick up with what sounds like a chorus of chanting, before dropping into the bass-frenzy you’d expect from AYA. Bells line the top of the mix, while a heavy sub rings out underneath, combining to create a powerful track.

'Ren' is the perfect follow-up, bringing an ample amount of Star Wars sampling to the table. The bass-intensive drops really do the Vader sampling justice, as they maintain musicality while still bringing that evil feel associated with the name. Similar sounds from “Hours” make their way into the mix at lower octaves, resulting in unique tracks that still form a highly cohesive EP." - YourEDM.com
