Starting out the EP is 'Ever Smaller Birds' from American turned Berliner, Kenneth Scott. The artist, who's releases will appear on Circus Company and Vakant (amongst others) provides an incredible broken beat slab of whimsical dancefloor electronica which would suit perfectly amongst the Four Tet fanatics and early morning electro wizards alike.
Following this comes 'Spät Noch 'raus' from the legendary Köln born DJ / producer Mathias Schaffhäuser. The Ware Recordings label boss has delivered a tension building DJ tool, 100%% free from any kick drum but full of absolute momentum to keep a party moving fully forward. Heavy use of synths and twisted murky tones compliment this twisted grower.
Third in line is 'Train' from Ukrainian local hero and party promoter, Smailov. With a sound as cold and forceful as a powerful locomotive train, this reverb saturated piece of electronica dives into the darkest pits of a concrete warehouse with an expanded intro before bursting into heavy as brick drum programming and solid steel sonic intensity. A perfect winter beast.
Rounding out package is the gorgeous 'Franco's Off' by Nasrawi . An experimental and stunning stripped back piece of music captures perfectly the creative power of the artist. With releases on Koze's Pampa as well as performances at Dubai's debut Mutek event, it's clear Nasrawi has a perfect ear for music which balances between sound design and dancefloor appeal. Just wait till the 4/4 kick sneaks in on this one. Absolutely effective, understated music.
