Batten down the hatches: MOOD deliver the debut collaboration from two exceptional rising French techno acts – Camille Luciani & duo In Anima – and the whole EP pays homage to mother nature's most formidable forces.
'Maelstrom' takes the lead. Every bit the sonic whirlpool its name suggests, it sucks you right into its vortex with its rising arpeggios, vast sense of scale and momentum and crisp, breath-taking production. 'Huracan' maintains the natural drama. Like any storm it whips up subtly before cloaking you in heavy gusts as gale force organs and pads blast your senses and a rolling beat shifts anything that's not tied down.
Black Peters brings this perfect storm to end with his remix of 'Maelstrom'. Extending the track by two minutes and rearranging the dynamic, the whirlpool becomes inversed. Rather than sucking you right in, it hurls you right out… Ready to start all over again. Bon voyage.
