Metempsychosis VA 001 aggregates a diverse range of musical output from broken experimental to a solid four to the floor and everything in between. The tracks share a common motif, combining melancholic and dreamy atmospheres with a forward looking attitude to techno.
With Duality Of Self, Flaminia opens the EP with an engaging groove made with deep dark drums. Screaming pads add a layer of mystery, broken by provocative silences. Various experiments create a unique style.
Tapefeed’s Auction conveys a sense of inner energy that would lift up the listener from the ground. The broken beat sanctions the right to dance while the high frequencies maintain a nostalgic feeling throughout the whole track.
Ossa Di Mare’s Surrendered To Her is a deep and moving work that hits the listener in the heart. The perfectly carved kick and bassline smoothly sustain an evolving distant pad. The soft and contained acid-like stab ensures the track never stops conveying energy.
Train’s Mystic Echo closes the EP with a dreamy and concrete 7 and half minutes. The tune keeps building up until an articulated synthetic organ resolves the tension. Kick and bass keep the energy level high to respect the dancefloor.
