Marble is the perfect opener to this EP. A kick heavy, grooved out number cut open with crisp hi hats and taken to another level with stunningly executed stabs. Roberto layer the track with just a hit of ethereal pads, hinting at distant plains. This is one of Robertos more full on tracks and he really makes it work with ease whilst retaining his style.
BYP drops things down a notch as sub heavy beats roll in to start what is another fine addition to Robertos repertoire. His signature grooving beats are packed by subtle changes in percussive patterns and sudden flourishes of reverb flooded synths with chopping hi hats picking the pace up toward the end. Roberto has a knack for making real end of the night Techno and this fits that bracket perfectly.
Rounding things off is the electronica driven Kermesse. Roberto delves in at the deep end again and really shows of his skills as a producer as oddly engrossing bass line and funked up beat sit atop electrified pad lines. This track steps outside the box for the Italian but shows nothing but his will and want to mix things up.
Roberto has come a long way since his debut on Soma 2 years ago and with his debut album on the way this May, he is shaping up to be one of the best Soma has to offer.
