Dysphemic is back with a new album for the new decade. Following the Australian native’s ‘Mind Bandit’ EP from last year, the bass music phenom’s new ‘Apollo’ LP is a highly-anticipated and welcomed addition to his rolodex. Out now on Dysphemic Productions, the 7-track release, in its entirety, is a master lesson in meticulously crafted psychedelic dubstep.

Cinematic in nature and scope, the latest from Dysphemic stylistically feels like a soundtrack to a viscerally epic film. Featuring his brother Yiani Treweeke, hefty bass drops are paired in perfect unison with his siblings’ fast-paced guitar plucking, in turn creating an intoxicatingly potent effect rife with Arabic and Egyptian-Greek musical influences. Serving as a prime representation of both musicians honoring their heritage music, ‘Apollo’ also effortlessly encapsulates the creative and artistic influences the brothers were able to absorb during their time growing up in New South Wales, Australia’s Blue Mountains.

Kicking off the album with a high-octane heavy-hitter, ‘Peyote Demon’ sets a high precedent for the rest of the LP to follow. Taking it in a more percussive direction, ‘Desert Hawk’ is a no-holds-barred romp of a track featuring subtle hints of drum and bass from start-to-finish. ‘Primate’ keeps up the massive tempo, characterized by its gritty tone and sharp synthlines. Following, ‘Arch Angel’ and ‘Lost Brothers’ both start out with slow, melodic instrumentation before blowing up into huge dub-laden behemoths. The penultimate tune, ‘Tripeando Denso’ is a psychedelic rollercoaster replete with abrupt waves of wobbly sound effects. Lastly, ‘Journey’ rounds everything out with its commanding energy, the perfect end to Dysphemic’s ‘Apollo’.
