Anthony Mea is a rising Italian artist, who is responsible for countless smooth and sophisticated deep and progressive house cuts this past year. We welcome him for the first time on Silk Textures for a three-track EP.
The first cut, "Move," features a "subterranean" soundscape, including a heavily filtered and groovy bassline, distant vocal echoes, and subtle jazz effects (including gorgeous piano riffs). There are also various spoken-word effects, including the titular hook: "I can make you move that body."
The next track, "Crimson," has a bit more hop to its step, and, once again, we are met by the dubby sounds of a male voice. The rhythm is a real strength of this track, with seemingy "live" drum percussion and a subtle groove.
Finally, "Make A Smile" concludes the EP on an after-hours vibe, as the track sinks down once again into cavernous depths. There are numerous jazzy effects in this one, including some really sexy and evocative synth stabs and vox effects. The distant sounds of the congo drum complete this lush and provocative affair.
