Remixes for Sasha's Last Night on Earth label and a track on his Mixmag covermount, a 'Top 50 tracks of the year' inclusion from Beatport, and an appearance at Red Bull Music Academy's Bass Camp have all come in a short space of time. Now he is set to join the highly respected Southern Fried Records imprint for the release of 'Time', early in 2015.
The EP kicks off with the subtley soulful 'Digital World', a delightful broken beat excursion into a melodic, bass fuelled soundscape. Skittering drum patterns, funk laden keys and swirling vocal cuts morph together to form a track with real depth and feeling and showcase the producers undoubted talent from the off.
Next up we have 'Time Goes On', an ethereal fusion of FX drenched piano stabs, rumbling sub bass and uplifting vocals that springs to life with an effortless musicality. Hypnotic and heartfelt, the record shows' the influence of Dittrich's time on the UK bass scene, whilst living in Scotland some years back, but also transcends any simple pigeonholing with it's elegant production and rich textural pallet, quality stuff.
Penultimate cut 'Clocks' sees MOTSA team up with MIMU for a vocal led affair that is as smooth and seductive as you could want, awash with warms pads and deep bass.
The package is closed with the wonderful 'Time Out' which takes a rougher and tougher approach with it's sawtooth bass and steppin' percussion. Synth stabs, pianos and vocal snippets all bring an atmospheric quality to the mix and the end result is a perfect final offering for this stunning EP.
Southern Fried Records have hit a perfect note once again with this latest offering from the highly promising MOTSA.
