The first installment of Balans Records in 2016 brings the debut of young, talented Italian artist, Drafted, to the Dutch label. Beautifully opening the EP, 'Frames from the Lake' fills the air with a thick suspense, reminiscent of a mystical fairytale before 'Frequency Graven' dives straight into a persistent kick and coordinated with fluttering chords. On the flip side, 'Shaded Impacted' delivers a deeper bass which introduces a progression into a climax of heavenly dissonance and relentless hi-hats. 'Vortex Empire' on the other hand features contradictory rhythms which dance atop stirring atmospheres. Each track is able to emphasize that naturally opposites do attract as the confronting rhythms compliment any dark dance floor.
