New Mountain: Overheat

Osaka’s Mountain has been creating some of Japan’s best drum ‘n’ bass over the last few years, and their most recent release through Soulvent Records marks a particular energetic high for the project. “Overheat” starts things off nicely, featuring a zippy pace joined by some vocal stutters of varying pitches. It’s a nice setter, but the breakthrough is the b-side, “Poseidon.” Here, the often-times reserved side of Mountain breaks away, revealing the most energetic track they’ve ever produced. After a little drip-dropping and piano, everything picks up and “Poseidon” just zooms ahead, powered by a gorgeous vocal melody of syllables lending the track an a melancholy edge.
