Multi-faceted artist CALIPPO drops another prime time EP on our little imprint. He became a firm fixture on the electronic music circuit releasing constantly on our label for now 1 year.
CALIPPO is a genuine electronic music polymath and, as such, his material is imbued with a real sense of craftsmanship where every detail has its true place and meaning. It's this meticulous DIY attitude to every aspect of his art that bleeds through this whole EPs tracks which see him focused on delivering a wide range of moods, tones and textures that while all centered around dancefloor rhythms, deliver much more than tracky club tunes. The brooding opener, TURN AWAY, with its densely shifting chord melodies is one of the reoccurring themes. Never intent on staying with one mood within one track, he lets tones fall and rise throughout with melancholic aspects giving way to rousing keys and fluttering leads offsetting ponderous basslines.
Sometimes its what is left out that really hits home like DOLEMITE and MOCCA use just enough synth textures to humanise them without taking away the rhythmic punch. This less is more attitude is only applied to arrangements and sound choices as musically CALIPPO runs riot, walking the line between old and new perfectly by imbibing each track with genuine subtle, emotive transitions and contrasts.
