Next up on the roster comes Parhelia, a music producer from Saint-Petersburg, Russia. He take on atmospheric Drum & Bass is true to its roots with blistering bass lines and rolling drums. Now he has teamed up with Rotation UK to bring us his new EP: Circles And Dots.
We begin with the title track: Circles And Dots. Swirling pads and melodic arpeggios artfully colour this track. Crunchy & punchy drum patterns keep the ball rolling while the jazz infused piano subtly echoes into this mix. The title track is a fantastic blend of ethereal atmospherics and that well know drum line we've come to love.
'Long Trip Into The Rain' is the second track on the EP. The track follows a similar premise to the 1st, with bright flowing pads and wonderfully delayed sound-scapes. Occasional drum fills and bongo hits keep the listener intrigued, both produced perfectly. A fitting track for a trip into the rain.
The 3rd track from the Circles & Dots EP is 'Future Past'. Introducing a more minimalist production Parhelia rounds the EP off very well with this progressive song. Arpeggios, making an appearance again, add to the progressive nature of the track making this the perfect liquid roller.
Circles & Dots (Soultec remix) is the final track on the EP. Bringing a fresh new take on Parhelia's title track, Soultec infuses a summery vibe with fluid drum lines and rhythmic percussion. Solid production values and rippling bass lines make this the perfect addition to a lounge in the sun. Soultec's remix brings a luscious end to a fantastic EP.
