Athena is a a name who’s been bubbling under the surface for a while now, and who’s finally seeing her potential realised over the last year, with two great releases on Drum & Bass heavyweights Shogun Audio and one of the finest up and coming liquid labels around - Goldfat Recordings.
Her newest offering ‘Next Door Reality comes as part of Goldfats Full Fat Volume 1 LP, a selection from some of the hottest next-gen producers in the underground DnB scene.
Stepping away from the liquid stylings of Miss You, Next Door Reality is an ambient stepping affair, with a jittering break layered over rising bass womps & oriental sounding pads.
Pitch perfect drums give way to a fully ambient breakdown, before returning with aplomb after the break.
Littered sparse percussive hits top off the track, resulting in a lovely contrast between dark & light and another delightful piece of music from one of our favourite rising stars.
