“Sorcery Rituals (city club Mix)” starts off the EP right with its robotic percussion and growling bass-line – a perfect fit for any DJ’s set. “Grumpy Stumper” comes correct with funky percussion, infectious drum fills, housey rhodes stabs, and tweaked out analog synth modulations; continuously changing, this track will keep any crowd on the floor and on edge. Keith’s final track, “What’s Your Motive?”, begs the question by providing the listener with a sneaky bass-line, bobbling groove, subtly changing synth stabs, and panning vocals that force you to answer the question with – “…to hear music like this!”.
The remixes for the “2045” EP tower with talent. Lee Curtiss (Dumb-Unit/Kalimari/Spectral) takes on “Sorcery Rituals” and turns it into an experimental yet groovy dance-floor bomb, which is undoubtedly going to be played by all the top jocks. Reference (Beretta Grey’s powerhouse duo of Brian Kage & Luke Hess), take “What’s Your Motive?” and turn it into a minimal party groove; with its tripped out vocals, dubbed out percussion, and tension building breaks, they create the Detroit-underground-zone-funk. Last, but not least, Anomic, a new mysterious producer to emerge from the underground, takes “Sorcery Rituals” into space with deep, shimmering pads and spaceship overtones, forcing the listener to lose themselves in the track – gravity check!>>> View All
