Ternion Sound is one of those formations that just can’t do no wrong. Since their “Hopeless EP” dropped on Distance’s Chestplate Recordings the trio has been unstoppable. Tracks such as “Verify Me” and “Parasite 6” became instant DJ favorites which gained them the support of some of the scene’s household names. Their sound is a fresh take on the original Dubstep sound. It’s hard, deep, groovy, dubby all at the same time. Just the way we like it. So naturally we had to get these guys on a release. Thanks to our mutual friend Bukez Finezt it happened and the result unmistakably is next level.
The “No Other Way EP” is one wild ride from start to finish. It’s probably Ternion’s heaviest outing to date. While already gained the support of Caspa, J:Kenzo and others, when you listen you’ll know why.
Starting off with the title track “No Other Way”. The intro’s bass guitar slaps away at you while giving you that gritty downtown kind of feeling. Just before everything turns black & white the guys go in with a bass line that is both relentless and intense which had us from the moment we heard it. But that’s not enough for the Ternion men. They just keep cranking the juice on this one giving it almost beastial characteristics as the track progresses.
“Dovetail” is a different kind of cookie though. With this track Ternion reminds us why we fell in love with Dubstep in the first place. The magic of a well worked out wobbler is lovely when done correctly and Dovetail delivers on all fronts. It’s militant and angry while it keeps it groovy, fun and bouncy. We know it’s not much of description to go on but those are words that come to mind when one plays this track.
Guarding the rear is “Jammer”. A gnarly sounding stomper that’s bursting with energy. It starts of light and sweet but as soon as you near the drop you can tell it’s going to show you a darker side. It then skips of snarling and growling away and showing you why it earned the title Jammer.
