Limited to only 400 copies on 140g blue & green marbled vinyl. Eveson aka Dead Man's Chest returns after the massive 'Dreamscapes EP' touched down late last year. Having delved through the archives of 1993-94 jungle, he continues with arguably better results. His magic of re-creating that old aesthetic but turning it into his own will be hard to match. Nautilus EP sets about its business with the summery Jungle contagion of Liquid ’94. This bracingly organic roller crackles with a gloriously warm old skool timbre; shooting from the hip with a bounty of ocean deep breaks, retro pads, and blissed-out instrumentation. Juxtaposed with the crisp contagion of the vocal hook; this sun-soaked number erupts into a shimmering crescendo of rhapsodic drum flourishes and soundclash style elements, atop a swell of rumbling low passed reese bass and winding bittersweet synths.

The rapturous quality of Cut Throat Hardcore captures the frenzied essence of the 90's hardcore sound, with its spasmodic cut-and-paste arrangement that has Dead Man’s Chest joining the ranks of the revivalist sensibility that’s carving its way through drum and bass right now. This frenetic slice of pandemonium pays homage in a whirl of classic breaks, buzzing electrical distortion, retro beeps and bloops, crashing high hats and a quintessential female power vocal laced throughout.

Nautilus, doesn’t mess about as further proof of Dead Man’s Chest's effortless sampling technique for maximum impact. The densely atmospheric title track swelters with the twinkling soundscape of the rainforest floor beneath a canopy of dense high hats, raw breaks, hard jungle vocals and a devastating brass hook that seals the deal for anyone with an inclination for dance floor Jungle pressure.

Gorgeously atmospheric, the downtempo mood of The Future winds down the EP in a sweeping musical progression of ethereal vocal chops and sublime chime and string samples; descending dramatically into a luscious breakdown of potent jungle flourishes, scathing synths and a throbbing, dubbed-out bassline. This track espouses a strong 90’s cadence whilst embodying the flawless matrimony of past and future sounds.
