I don’t know anything about spirit animals or totems, but I know that the Silverback gorilla is my favorite in the jungle. They’re smart, strong, and viciously protective. Destroying anything that comes puts themselves in harmway, the Silverbacks are not to be messed with. So Montreal’s Silverback is to be taken the same way. Silverback first got on our radar when he was part of Hidden Gems with his massive Disclosure remix and while that was nuts, we’re loving this even more. Pegboard Nerds‘ original already had primed sound design and Silverback just makes this his own. Mixing bits of primetime Skrillex influence, Silverback has snarling basslines, scorching leads and big low-end. It’s been a while since someone has really invigorated this particular style so i’m excited for the originals. But for now, just snag this download.
