A1, Chris Mitchell "T.C." After a quieter 2015 Chris Mitchell returns with the a more serious tone. Chris starts the ep with a house tempo grinder as a growling bass morphs over an intricate 505 pattern. Vocal samples and keys emerge to carry the track along until a sinister string tone arrives.
A2, Retrograde Youth "One Last Try" Medellin's exciting new artist follows up his premier on Delta Funktionen's radio matrix with a dark storm of rugged drums draped in extraterrestial synth tones. A hard snare punctuates a curtain of intensity that consistently morphs into more warped territories.
B1, DJ Nephil "Bipolar Disorder" Nephil picks up the pace here as we are introduced into this cut with an arpeggiated synth pattern seemingly contained in a deep hall with a background vocal in some distant form. In stylistic form with the rest of the EP Nephil continues with an active and agressive drum pattern as the palette expounds with high pitched synth fx and midrange synth lines.
B2, Vault "Up Through The Concrete", newcomer Vault hails from Knoxville, TN, home other intriguing artists like Grey People, Alex Falk and Will Azada. Vault brings the most energetic offering to the EP. EBM inspired high tempo drums slice a furious arpeggiation. Vocals add the most hypnotic layer along with some synth lines that build tension throughout. The perfect climax for this rough and subterrainian EP.
