Deorbiting explore sonic themes around impact, causality and uncertainty in their Sic Transit Gloria Mundi EP, comprising of three introspective original tracks, with remixes by fellow label mates Boy Next Door and Krink, alongside UK electronic producer duo Stereo MCs.
Opener Tunguska, named after the meteoric burst event in the eponymous region centres around quivering strings and piano pads, creating the perfect backdrop for mind-bending vocals and a playful melody that builds up to a light-hearted crescendo.
Stereo MCs turn the track into a less introspective, stripped down version with memorable drums and an overall minimalistic tribal flavour.
On the flip side, Boy Next Door emphasises the dark wedges of the original, adding a raw bassline and metallic synths, amping up the tension into a determined, relentless slice.
Sic Transit dives even deeper into the introspective waters of mystery and ambivalence. With a slow-paced escalating melody, arched with huge, glorious pads, it gives a hint of the piety associated with the Latin saying. Krink adds a layer of contemplation with brooding atmospheres and smokey elements that showcase the producers attention to detail.
Gloria Mundi comes off as a resolute dispersion of the tension built up in the previous two tracks. Serene and intrepid, it rounds off the release on an understated yet heightened atmosphere.
