The Pendulum sound is typically heavy beats accompanied by low, buzzing basslines, overlaid with synthesized leads. When Pendulum started out as producers in Australia, their sound was considerably more Drum n Bass-influenced than the work they are known for today. Signature tunes such as “Vault, Back to You”, “Voyager” and “Toxic Shock” which were released on small labels such as Uprising Records and Low Profile Records have a darker more melodic air to them which is substantially absent from their later, more dancefloor driven production. Early work such as “Masochist” however, seems to indicate an early affinity with a more mainstream sound similar to other Breakbeat Kaos artists such as DJ Fresh and Adam F.
