If you’re looking for a Drum & Bass mix which hits you just as hard at home as on the dancefloor, look no further than the latest release by Apklypz (AKA J Holden) “Golden SpiralVerse”. The short and sweet hit may only be 2:15-minutes long, but there’s plenty of snaringly visceral hooks and drops. Even if you forget the slightly hard to remember name, there’ll be no forgetting the dark, dubbed progressive mix. By blending elements of Bass & Prog Rock, the cinematic sound becomes instantly accessible, yet the allure of Apklypz goes beyond that. With the organic soundscape’s ability to paint vivid expression full of aesthetic, Golden Spiralverse is a resonant attack on all of the senses.
