"Plastic Age EP" is the seventieth release on Loco Records. With this EP, the duo Karol XVII & MB Valence would like to welcome a New Year. Although it has taken a while to come out, many can say that it has been worth waiting for the three awesome tracks included in this release: "The Bar Around The Corner", "Simple Minds", and "Days Without You".
"The Bar Around The Corner" opens the entire EP. This tune is so characteritic due to its unique punchy big room bass line combined with stabs of synth over the top line, delicate drums that get accompanied by a subtle piano riff which in turn adds a lot of flavour to the mysterious nature of the track.
"Simple Minds", which is the second track on the EP, starts calmly and then rolls out a steady driving rhythm with seductive grooves and deep, grumbling undertones. The deep chords of the piano together with female vocal interjections make a huge combination for the big room driving sound.
The final track "Days Without You" is full of bouncy basslines rolling underneath unique melodies and vocal stabs and the clever use of strange but deep textures and noises. Swinging hi-hat pattern, a punchy kickdrum hammering through, incredible fiddle pads with some deep synth shots and gated vocal glitches are all that get the track rolling.
