about

The newest heater from the Noctilux clan comes from West Coast producer, Konka. Well established in Vancouver, B.C. with previous releases on Aufect Recordings, Konka joins the Noctilux family with his self-professed “heavy beats and loud noises.” Influenced by artists such as Alix Perez, Noisia, and Josh Pan, Konka amalgamates those established sounds into a composite that is all his own. Hand of God is a journey through beats, imprinted by bass music’s many identities and hints of classic 1990s electronica.

Hand of God with his original adaption of the EP’s namesake. “Hand of God” commences with an eerie cadence and vocal sample, that establishes the dark mood within, tying the whole release together. “Intriguing isn’t it, how our faces betray us?” It’s a haunting sample, perfectly interlinking Hand of God’s elements and closing the release.

L Nix and Outsider’s version of the EP’s title track, “Hand of God” brings traditional dubstep wobble and tempo to the forefront. The deepest track on the release, the L Nix and Outsider remix of “Hand of God is a profound expedition into audio bliss.

The original interpretation “Fakie” kicks off with a bang, establishing an addictive melody accompanied by footwork-style beats, completely worthy of headbanging. Quickly descending into a lowend expedition of bass, “Fakie” is a comprehensive sound system workout that will inevitably flex club and festival dancefloors.

Then a remix is courtesy of Strange Thing from Victoria, B.C. His version of “Fakie” immediately initiates dark undertones, quickly picking up velocity. The track gives way to a funky, deep bass groove, the perfect accompaniment to good times and weighty sound.

Konka ends with “Big Street,” invokes images of electronic music’s migration to the masses. If young Liam Howlett and Trent Reznor traveled to the future and made a tune with the big bass of today it would be reminiscent of “Big Street.” Its sound evokes images of live festival music videos of yore – big stages, big sound systems, and big crowds.
