Encore

Protohype – Encore Ep | Featured Review

On a day that was otherwise yet another bleak Tuesday, up and coming producer / DJ Protohype released his latest EP entitled Encore and has made quite the impression with the 5 track compilation. If this is your first encounter with Protohype and his music you are in for more than a treat. Protohype builds a solid soundscape of electro-dubstep vibes from beginning to end that will hook and entertain any and all who hit the play button on this all out amazing project. The EP is complimented by features including the likes of Datsik, Duelle, Ras and Jeff Sontag who all of which only enhance the general feel of the project and give each track its own unique sound. Protohype keeps the listener on their toes with attention to detail production wise and a great use of surprise build ups, drops and all out change ups on the tracks that will have you hitting the replay button on at least one, if not all the songs.

After listening all the way through I did come across two records that really left a lasting impression. The first of which had to be the title track “Encore” which will hook you instantly with a solid dubsteb vibe on the beat that  is held down like no other by Ras’ hard hitting well received verses. The drops are simple yet effective and show off Protohype’s ear for well produced music. You will find yourself vibing out to the song much like you would to the sounds of a hip-hop record with a cool consistent feel.

My second pick from the EP, “Zero,” which was produced by both Datsik and Protohype is an all out dubstep hit that is topped off by a sick “I don’t give a f*ck” sample which will be stuck in your head for a minute after the track ends. The record is consistent, full of energy and will keep you strait up rocking out all the way to the end. I must comment upon the mysterious laugh that presents itself about half way through the song. I honestly thought someone was behind me when I first heard it. Well played guys, I am more than positive you surprised everyone who has heard this strategically place laugh!

All in all I got to give it up to Protohype, Encore proved to be an entertaining EP from beginning to end and has definitely filled my hunger for new Protohype music for at least a month, maybe two. I give the project a solid 8/10 and look forward seeing what the future holds for Protohype and his music! #BOOM!
