Jukebox: Midnight Conspiracy & Cenob1te - Sentinel
The producers have teamed up for a second time with "Sentinel," both groups' second release on Ultra Records and one that's sure to do things similar to those which "The Eye" accomplished. Because, after all, it's very similar idea-wise. It's a 110 BPM complextro working that does what it sets out to do - namely, use its heaviness the best way possible. A simple piano intro complete with chiptune and harpsichord moves unassumingly forward until the infamous Massive wobbles come into play. The "drop" section is surprisingly well-produced, as Midnight Comspiracy and Cenob1te chop and stutter the wobbles over and over again in a disorientingly careful way, with simple strings every beat to keep time along with the drums. The piece as a whole isn't going to break any boundaries or push beyond the current style of electro house, but it's still a brutal slice of electro that shows off the best sides of today's 110 BPM scene. Considering what it is, "Sentinels" succeeds greatly, and that's all we can really ask of these producers for now.
