Following on from a strong 2012, Apollo is thrilled to announce the release of Dush's debut work for the label in the shape of the twin-track tech-oriented EP, "Resurrection".
Opening track "Lay Back!" is a wonderfully quirky offering. A pulsating modulated bass line makes its repetitive mark throughout the six-minute odyssey while a dripping, ticking clave percussion section bounces and hypnotises, providing a foil for a bountiful supply of reverb-drenched, white noise based sweeps and filters. Bearing the aural hallmarks of something one might find within sleep-laden dreams, perhaps "Lay Back!" is an ode to Freudian analysis on the psychiatrist's couch.
Like its predecessor, EP partner track, "Inter Noir", continues the theme of rhythmic melodic percussion, this time played out in a more up-tempo, dance-floor friendly playground. Populated by a series of similarly rhythmic stabs that ultimately metamorphosise themselves into an elegantly formed melodic refrain, their accompaniment by a huge, filtered and sustained bass line, is an impressive denouement before dropping back into the pulsing beat and melodic gem that has become a hallmark of the Dush sound.
Pushing himself to creative limits from back to black, Dush's "Resurrection" is Apollo's gain.
