Peter Van Hoesen returns to his beloved Time To Express label after a consistent string of releases on Center 91. Echoes from Westbrook Bay is a six-track EP, showcasing the Belgian producers personal take on immersive electronic music.
The EP contains six tracks, focusing on Van Hoesens detailed, narrative sound. They all share his trademark intricate sound design, directing the listeners attention towards multiple layers and events within each composition.
The main body of the EP is focused around four brand new techno tracks, ranging from the light-footed, melodic Allocators to the muscular vibes of closing track Block by Block. Waving not Drowning continues to explore Van Hoesens recent breakbeat-oriented output on Batus Timedance imprint. Its an abstract drumnbass roller, combining a tight rhythmic framework with modulated, shifting FM pads. No massive drops here, its all about tension and anticipation.
Echoes from Westbrook Bay adds another highlight to Peter Van Hoesens extensive output on Time To Express.
