debut on the Lithuanian imprint in May of 2017 with a contribution to the label's Initializing, Vol. 12 collection. Also owning releases on Manual Music, Particles, Steyoyoke and Traum, Frezel now returns to Suffused Music for his first EP entitled 'Ancient'.
Spread across three tracks it's the dark beats of 'Live In The Moment' which lead the release off. Stripped and punchy from the outset, walls of sub bass engulf the framework as tough percussion and crunchy electronics steal the air. Wavering atmospheres add a subtle tension throughout the first act, building anticipation before melting down into a cinematic break, and perfectly setting up a third act of rousing bass modulation.
The journey continues with the vibrant and bouncy 'Primeval'. Sitting in a similar sonic space as 'Live In The Moment' it's groovy, dark rumblings become immediately captivating. From it's well contoured low end to aquatic designs and dynamic stabs there is a wealth of sensory bliss. Perhaps most compelling is the final break as it moves through wonky motifs and stellar modulation upon reaching a heady apex.
Once again showcasing Frezel's uncanny ability to meld progressive house and techno the release concludes with the title selection 'Ancient'. It's driving groove and lively percussion brings a momentous roll early, before spaced out motifs and growling stabs add further intrigue. Vibrant tones advance the mystical storyboard as timely rhythmic shifts and a dramatic break seal it's brilliance. A stunning three track showcase from Frezel who continues to be one of the Netherlands most highly touted progressive house talents.
