Neat little roller with its main draw distinctly in the low-end. The drums are fresh and zesty-sounding, acting as a foil to the warm and enveloping bass; like an enchanting siren it lulls you into its dark midst.
Back with their first record in nearly four years, the ever-creative husband and wife duo Mariam Wallentin and Andreas Werliin decide to strip things back for this aptly-titled release. From the off, ‘Rhythm’ sets out its stall with a tight, driving, solo drum break, which acts as the metronomic musical anchor for Wallentin’s weaving vocal. Rarely has the old truism less is more been more brilliantly executed.
Supremely classy breakbeat from the London-based producer, who takes Rich & Deller's soulful vocal-led Balearic house original and twists it up with an electro-style bassline and extra syncopated goodness.
No guff Chet, I’ve been waiting for Ekoplekz to do something like this for what seems like a long, long time. Not that he hasn’t made music that would function on and pretty much batter any lesser soundsystem in the past, it just feels like these six tracks completely revel in their newfound directness. Basically, take that busted plekzed sound palette, apply it to slow chug techno and you’ve got ‘Sarkaztik’, aka my realised dream.
