Paul Reset’s notes:

After Noisia on NERVE009 and Terminal Velocity on NERVE010 we decided it was time to get back to the Nerve roots and get more Pyro material out there.

“Sentinel” opened the release and it’s a moody stepper, with a big bastard of a bassline that smashed up many a dancefloor back in 2003. Proxcis stepped in to lend a hand on the flip for “Oblivion Cruises Inc” and this track still gives me the fear to this day. Sinister synth stabs combine with the tracks low slung sub bass and eerie atmospherics to lend the whole track an unnerving feel. Amazing stuff!

Once again – artwork duties were carried out by the guys at Yuva.TV.

(oh and again I’ve nicked the artwork from Rolldabeats temporarily until I get my own versions online)

Pyro’s Notes:

This 12 was all about the darkness! We did oblivion cruises inc in one day. To this day i think its still the fastest I’ve ever finnished a tune. Funny story about the title: Proxcis is a fellow producer originally into psy and progressive trance. I introduced him to drum’n’bass and he particularly fell in love with tracks with reese basslines (as pioneered in jungle on ‘terrorist’ by dark solider aka ray keith), said the high notes sounded like the horn of a ferry. So we wrote a track about the ferry of doom…. scary stuff!
