The support Turno has received across the drum & bass world isn’t surprising. Having a background in music technology, he’s spent years honing in on a sound which has not only earned him international esteem, but also a place at the highly-respected Charge Recordings imprint. Although, what else can be expected from a producer who’s spent over a decade both behind the decks and in the studio, pouring effort over his craft and ensuring he’d become a staple in sets from the UK to overseas... Whether that’s at Elements Festival in Belgium, or Sunbeatz in Ibiza.
‘The Invaderz’ begins the EP, a foreboding, carefully winding up track that pedestals eerie atmospherics and a construction line of pelting drums. Before long, you’re dropped into smashing distortion and a bassline that twists and turns between warbling snare. Turno doesn’t hold back and continues his onslaught, in between snippets of vocal protruding through the mix. Then comes ‘Frightened’, with clattering percussion and low-mids building you slowly into the track’s pandemonium. Tension rises and soon you’re enraptured by Turno’s incredibly catchy hooks.
