has had a rather productive year so far and it's with great pleasure that
Let's Play House can claim him as its newest roster member. The Paradise
Lost EP finds the man doing what he's done best since coming out in the
early aughts: dropping deep and frothy house with a steely underbelly. The
title track begins with a muddy synth line upon which ambient, meandering
melodies are layered, all led by a distant voice singing nonsense. Like a
snake-charmer, he lures you in slowly and subtly until a thick, heavy bass
pops out of nowhere and keeps you bobbing along until it fades away. Marcos
Cabral's remix cuts to the chase: the Brooklyn-based producer quickly
injects the song with a hefty dose of adrenaline, speeding up the feel with
a snappier 4/4 snare while also removing most of the vocals to yield an
overhauled version that sounds like a carved-out, ghostly re-rendering of
the original. The flip kicks off with Choc-Ice for 4a funkier affair that
prominently features a fat disco-y bass line offset by cold, precise synth
stabs and a keyboard riff that sounds like it might've been used in an easy
listening song. The tribal vocals Tobias sprinkles into the jam give it an
off-kilter weirdness that keeps it interesting. Tokyo Black Star finishes up
the release with a helter-skelter and chaotic take on Choc-Ice. Dissonant,
disturbing, and druggy, it most definitely lives up to its nameif the Akiba
in question were from Ridley Scott's Blade Runner and the song came on while
Rick Deckard was roaming the misty, disorienting alleyways of
Tokyo.
