2methyl has been somewhat of a slow burner, with a flow of key releases that have consistently showcased his very specific sound and support from renowned artists such as Hecq (who remixed his track Golem). His path of audio manipulation has seen him creating music across a number of genres, and finally has led to him entering the experimental fringes of Drum and Bass. Sounding like a hybrid of Tipper and Broken Note, full of the kind of futuristic squelch found in Tippers breaks, backed by the heavy growl of Broken Note and hung on a backdrop of precisely defined Technoid DnB beats. This EP also marks The Sect's first foray onto the forward thinking Ad Noiseam label; featuring a heavy remix from one of Neuro-Technic DnB's pioneers.

You can listen to a medley of the EP below and read what Ad Noiseam have to say about the release:
In the words of Ad Noiseam's label boss - "Ever-changing and ever progressing: over the course of a few years, 2methyl (formerly known as 2methylbulbe1ol) has become something of a well kept secret. With only a few records (including one on Peace Off's Ruff label shared with Niveau Zero and one featuring a remix by Hecq), he has developed an intricate, intense and particularly sharp sound, somewhere at the meeting points of genres. "Orb" is his long awaited first adventure into drum'n'bass. The tempo has become faster, the sound a bit more stripped, and the focus has greately gained in precision and drive. And still, 2methyl knows better than repeat and copy. "Orb" is a very intricate work: clear, heavy, sharp and adding this musician's experience and experiments to beats which are sure to pack the dancefloor. An EP for the feet as much as for the brain from an artist to watch extremely closely"
