Italian producer Thomas A.S. is set to release his latest EP, 'North Lake', on the rising Beirut based label Fantome de Nuit. Not one for elaborate biographies or fancy press packs, twentysomething year old Italian producer Thomas A.S. simply prefers to let his music speak for him. And when you are constantly releasing tracks like the ones that make up his upcoming North Lake EP, a string of fancy words are the last thing you need. Thomas opens up his latest with North Lake', the EP's title track, and wastes no time at all. Clocking inat over nine minutes, others might ease into a release, but A.S. gets straight to business. With a massive kick propelling the opener forward, the young Italian constructs his track around the big fourtothefloor beat. Crisp percussion gives way to spacey stabs, before a perfectly executed vocal sample freshens things up again. Make no mistake, the track is a long one, but its durations passes by like nothing, ultimately compelling the listener to rewind this absolute belter. Every Time You Fall' begins with a mix of smart clanks and some big waves of bass. The two work together to envelope the track and by the time to kick drops in, you're already nodding along. Significantly darker than the opener, Every Time You Fall' has a menacing vibe. Thomas continues to build and break the track down, each time introducing a new element to the party. It's easy to imagine the track going off at the darkest of clubs in the early hours of the morning. Nick Devon is first to step up on remix duties with his interpretation of North Lake'. Although the mix takes more of techy twist, it's the enormous bass lines that really stand out here. His use of heavy delay and clever pads make for a delightful build up just before the track drops out near the halfway point.Reduced to bare percussion and and a deep synth line it floats in mid air for seconds before slamming back to reality. London based duo Daylomar wrap the release up with their take on Every Time You Fall'. Stripping thethe track down to its most prominent features, the duo introduce some clever drum programming to mix things up. Their version of Thomas' menacing bside, is significantly lighter and offers a beautiful variation to the original mix. The use of airy synths breathe new life into the original and make for a remix with legs of its own.
