Full disclosure, I’m releasing this on my label, but the debut EP from Crewdson and Femme as Eckoclick makes good on the promise their remix of Bambooman’s ‘Sun’ hinted at. Pop-leaning house built from micro-chopped samples and enchanting vocals.
The usual mixture of naff one line emo vocal about falling in love/apart/over, slapped over a jangling, mildly ravey synth and a dash of grotty bass noises, and a few percussive bangs and whistles. But this time we have the pleasure of having the same track at three tempos — 128, 140, 174 — too kind...
Lock up your daughters and anyone else, the second instalment of ‘Psychosis’ is dropping. Like the first release, ‘March Into Nothingness’ is a bleak affair, with steely beats stomping over relentless waves of acid. ‘Drown Into the Eternal Twilight’ is faster and even more extreme. The kick-drums are distorted and disturbing, while malevolent shapes, splintered percussion and menacing noises will offer little respite for an audience that has already been hammered into submission.
The air apparent to Tiff Lacey’s First Lady of Vocal Trance crown, here comes that girl Christina Novelli again. Her vocals and lyrics penetrate deep into ‘Seventh Kingdom’ and backed by Tasadi & Aryas’s elegiacally string-strewn drop and the wonderful note movement of its sequential lift, ‘Seventh Kingdom’ connects fast enough. A fine release for Kentucky’s new-on-the-scope Lunary Recordings.
