If The Prototypes were not already known for their big room, vocal drum-and-bass productions, their recent release of the Suffocate EP on Shogun Audio has firmly solidified their place among the new wave of promising production teams within this genre. Similar to 2010’s “Cascade,” the title track off this EP relies on a powerful vocal topline to complement characteristic breakbeats and a captivatingly melodic bass line.
The EP’s B-side, a track entitled “Habitation,” throws you for a bit of a loop by exposing the moodier and more dramatic side of The Prototypes’ musical ability. The EP includes an instrumental, radio edit, and Koven remix of “Suffocate” as well.
