Like a fourth dimensional creature experiencing past and future simultaneously, Eleftherios Kousakis (aka Elef) has created music for Fresh Meat drawing from the traditions of House music and reaching towards its future. Elefs Haus EP is a three tracker that will be pressed on pristine vinyl followed thereafter by global digital release. The tracks on this EP connect Detroit and Chicago influences to Elefs own German roots. The opener Haus is in many ways a bread and butter American Midwest acid house jam. Three lines of Rolands TB303 lovingly glide over repeating filtered electric piano and ghostly background strings. The infamous TR909 ride bunches together an undulating mid range heavy rhythm track, with cymbals played one tightly against the next, snares juxtaposed to each other falling in long decaying arcs and the kick drum scoring each measure into 4 spacious packets of insistent motion. In the second half, a slim dry synth stab completes the conversation between bass, piano, string and drums. Weird Situation was the last track Elef wrote for this EP and is our favorite. The memorable, emotionally deep vibe of Weird Situation uses square acid bass waves this time bubbling over modulating organ chords. Mechanized closed high hats swing wide round a clipped kick and clap combination and reversed detuned cymbals. Heavily reverberated vocal snippets provide the sole human connection to an otherwise pure exercise in machine soul.Things of Tomorrow closes out Elefs EP. Resonating elongated synth stabs and playfully intermittent plastic bass bumps seem to tease an eerie female vocalist to shout atop jazzy lo-fi drums. These are emblematic motor city soundscapes, whether youre talking Detroit or Stuttgart. Things of Tomorrow predicts an immediate musical future which is direct and in your face; an ethic based on the visceral punch of dry automaton programming and intuitive human experimentation.
