Beginning with the title track 'Rumors' Stiven, Michael and Levan move into deeper territory with a warm spacious groove, smooth rhythms and clusters of dreamy tones. It's both alluring and mysterious with a flair for the dramatic, particularly across an expansive first act, as layers of percussion build and bulbous stabs steal the air. An electric lead flows nicely into a short interlude, resetting the groove for a more unique cadence, while the main break elevates the narrative into astral territory. The companion piece 'Incognito' finds the trio exploring the hypnotic sensibilities they've become so loved for. It's rolling groove is perfectly carved, adorned with plucky hooks, fiery percussion and meditative arps. Smooth and dubby across the first act, it eventually opens up into an astral storyboard as a wave of sonic artefacts segues perfectly into a groovy finale.
The lone interpretation of 'Rumors' is provided by EdOne who makes his label debut. The Spanish artist lays claim to an impressive discography highlighted by releases on Beatfreak, Stil Vor Talent, Selador and Suara. Now making his much anticipated Movement Recordings debut, the Cadiz resident puts a unique twist on 'Rumors'. Setting the piece in motion is a bed of broken beats and rippling bass tones. Airy pads elevate mood as layers of exotic percussion flow through the framework. Poignant tones and percussive flurries continue to bend the narrative, adding emotion and tension, before the main break and impactful drop shift energy into euphoria's top floor.
The release concludes with label artists Paul Angelo and Don Argento returning for their fifth appearance. 2019 has seen the Cyprus based duo compile the second volume of the Greek imprint's 'GLBLMVMT' series while also delivering their first EP 'Hephaestus'. Now fresh off releases for Soundteller Records and Yin:Yang, Paul and Don return to Movement with a stunning interpretation of 'Incognito'. Anchored by a driving groove, the Cyprus duo's rhythmic drum work and fluid electronics build a strong cadence. Acidic designs add a flair for the dramatic, while percussive splashes and esoteric tones perfectly segue into the main break. Spanning nearly a minute in length, the interlude is one of introspection, backed by a solemn air and laced with buzzing designs, it effortlessly shifts energy into a pulsating finale. Another inspired remix from Paul and Don which caps off another excellent offering from Tash's Movement Recordings. Don't miss it.
