Played by Jimi Jules across the summer season, EP opener and title selection 'Disturbing the Perception' finds Adrian composing with a strong sense of space. With each sound being an event in a slowly expanding landscape, zooming out to reveal a world of scale in which depth and contrast coax perfectly with rhythm and melody. This indie-tinged, mood lifting excursion smoothly transfers energy into selection two, the thought provoking, therapeutic experience that is 'Aeren'. Thematically distinct, as Adrian's vocals ring out in timeless suspension, over a utopian narrative in which potent drum patterns and soulful synth phrasing resonate with a rare combination of hope, heartache and reflection.
Meanwhile, 'Snare Receptor' shifts Adrian's modus operandi into one of electronic futurism, an eclectic approach that honors the wide musical scope he is most interested in. Building with a subdued pulse, its smoky resonance eventually gives way to capricious drum experimentation, where textural and structural dimensions blanket clustered snares and prophetic drones, ultimately resulting in a profound mood setting experience. The Spaniard's molecular level of detail shines on EP closer and showcase piece 'Lady Hester'. A titanic main room assault where tightly knit industrial rhythms chug mechanically against dissonant synth blasts and crunchy melodica, for a thunderous collection-closing dance floor escapade.
