'Raum' jumpstarts the collection with menacing allure. Whirring analogue forms the core of this deadly track, keeping it tight in the low end while various layers of synth fizz and snarl. An urgent riff joins the fray, adding depth and energy. Across almost 10 minutes Ede showcases his ability to create a dark atmosphere and imbue his music with spinetingling theatrics. Fans of the riff will be pleased to find a beatless version of 'Raum', which will be useful for creating dramatic moments during DJ sets no doubt.
On side B, 'Zeit' brings the pace down slightly. A melancholy synth line evokes feelings of sorrow, while the beat pumps along. Ede uses the full 8 minutes of this track to really build the tension, finally unleashing it halfway through. This could easily be used on the soundtrack for a cyborg action movie set in the future.
Last up, 'Unendlichkeit' is a further demonstration of Ede's love of futurism, new wave and film noir circa 2080. Here he tells a story with the machines, each one adding their contribution to the narrative which gets more and more chaotic as the tune progresses.
A very impressive EP, and we're sure you'll agree it's something quite special.
