The Silent Coup have been producing jungle and drum & bass music for more than 10 years, quietly honing their skills. The 3 key players of the Coup bring a unique aspect to the table – 1 from audio engineering, 1 from a classical background and the other from a music production background – their distinct sound blends elements of technical beat wizardry, precision programming, audio processing, deep musicality, tribal dub rhythms and experimentalism. Having grown up with jungle/drum & bass during its halcyon days in the mid to late nineties, their aim is to help bring the genre and audience in the 21st century back to its roots, and the innovation and atmosphere that helped define it.
Their first release on Inna Riddim sticks close to their philosophy. '13000' is a techy, edgy, brooding affair, drawing inspiration from the old Virus and Renegade Hardware sounds, circa '97, but brings in complex rhythms and heavier drums to give a more distinctive, hard percussive sound. 'Reminisce' does exactly what it says on the tin, drawing up golden memories and vibes from good times past, deep rhodes, pads and flutes enhancing the emotive aspect, while quick fire drum edits and booming subs add heavy support.
