The British/Catalonian connection running through the Indigo Raw camp, explores new depths on this crisp 3 tracker from Welshman, Tom Ellis.
The Hopenosis EP sees the UK producer playing around with more melodic elements than usual, while still true to form, rolling out his love of shuffled jacking beats.
The Freeroation festival resident & crew member clearly has an ear for the floor, setting out the grooves here that will sound as accomplished in the club as on the home stereo.
The gentle unravelling of the A side, Minds on Music offers a complex chord progression, peppered with a melodic bass guitar phrase that carries nicely through the key changes for a perfect summer jam.
On the flip side; Go Through Me, with its sustained jazzy chords, deep driving baseline and melodic vocals, remains gentle but insistent. Perfect for making the transition from deeper moments towards the more energetic.. While Backwoods moves away from the traditional 4/4 kick and into a shuffling broken beat groove that oozes machine soul, adding a more experimental edge to the package without breaking the flow of the EP.
