Dark Elixir has been creeping along the fringes of bass music for a long time now. He might not be one of the biggest name’s in the game, but don’t let that fool you. He’s been around the block. The LA producer is truly one of the best when it comes to supplying the deepest and darkest of beats, spanning from drum & bass to dubstep. With his new Simple Chaos EP, Dark Elixir isn’t taking one moment to relax, flooding each track with haunting sound design layered over grueling bass lines. The EP focuses on dubstep, but manages to explore all different corners of the genre, from post-dubstep, to grime, to atmospheric, to unrelenting filth. And of course no matter what style he tries out, there’s a clear stamp of Dark Elixir inspiration. It’s just another incredible release to add to Firepower Records‘ already massively impressive catalog.
