After two tracks included on the first two compilations by Tiptop Audio Records (alongside names such as Kink, Blawan, Surgeon, Drumcell, Richard Devine, etc.), the label is proud to announce ANGLE’s first EP ‘Hold Your Breath’. It’s the first vinyl EP released by the Californian label dedicated to sound research through the use of modular synthesizers. The EP includes 2 original tracks by ANGLE and 2 remixes realized by Luca Agnelli and Maxime Dangles. The title track moves along with the solid kick and sequencer pulse ANGLE is known for as ghostly female vocals flit in and out of the mix; perhaps even evoking shades of vintage ‘Chris and Cosey’. ‘Landing’ opens with a more urgent rhythmic throb before a slightly sinister chord sequence arrives to provide a sense of both sonic relief and distress. Luca Agnelli remixes the title track down to a fairly minimal affair, that brings not only the beat but voice to the forefront - a very spare breakdown around the midpoint might make this the choice for the minimal DJ set. The first ‘Hold Your Breath’ remix by Maxime Dangles (’Repeat’) highlights the track’s rhythmic base by overlaying dense echoes and loops to a bass heavy underpinning. Dangles’ other mix ‘Diskoid’ adds in the sequencer of the original as it builds and breaks to its own internal logic cycles. ANGLE’s ‘UK’ rolls back the clock a few decades with classic hi-hats, claps and even a little zap or two, and then weaves thoroughly modern and somewhat dark sound design in between the spaces creating a hybrid style.
