Italian Francesco De Marzo aka Pyramidal Decode returns with an EP following a breakthrough track called 'Ptomaine' released last year on DEAD CERT. With his music also featured on labels like Subsist, Mephyst and SK Black, his productions and profile are very much one to keep an eye on.
Contributing a remix is none other than UK maestro Kirk Degiorgio, known for an eclectic production catalogue that spans his own Applied Rhythmic Technology (ART) Records, Carl Craig's Planet E, Rush Hour, Suara, or collaborating with Vince Watson and B12's Steve Rutter amongst others.
'Antidoto' uses the intro to build tension with a thumping kick and stabbing bass line. The addition of jovial pulsing tones instantly bring it to life and this detailed, energetic gem is a real powerhouse.
Kirk Degiorgio's remix follows and opts for some haunting harmonics and a more mysterious feel. The introduction of morphing acid licks bring a whole new spaced out vibe adding a new layer of contrast to the original's sound structure.
The third track 'Widen' gets more serious and moody with a driving beat. Twisted bell chimes create an eerie vibe that's full of suspense, while the scratching hat textures add a raw feel and analogue style.
Last up 'Plague' is a punchy peak time operation where a jacking undercurrent is offset by modular bleeps. The melody subtly develops and expands with a futuristic character and retains an essence of being a club ready workout.
