TBR: 18th June
We are back in Berlin to find out more about this debut EP from the illusive Crore. Heading up Vision Conflict Records leaves the talented producer in little doubt of what the music should sound like, finding the time to make it was perhaps another mountain to climb. Getting it done and getting it just right means we've all had to wait until now. The EP comes with 3 originals, which work to illuminate various assets in the arsenal of this fresh entry name.
With resounding fast beating kick drums and rim taps, the intro of Ultraviolence pushes everyone aside for the centre light. A scrunchy phase swooshes up and down and left to right under the pounding percussion before a sudden insert of digital bass lifts the tune up into the next dimension. Bouncy beats with wavering tonality build a pressurising array of melodics. The dancing energy is really high, then an airy synth cuts through and allows a euphoric break in the atmosphere. It reveals lights and smoke, silhouettes of the DJ flashing in the strobe. It all adds in, layer after layer is crafted in place to make a jaw clenching ride through searing hats and thumping bass.
Next up is Thinking In Code. It begins with a magic repeating bass-line, throbbing in a steady engineered array. Drums crumble in from padded walls, their beats bouncing in the soft areas and delivering a muted cut to the moving and abstract bass melody. Swirling undercurrents of sonic formulation sweep and sway through a needlepoint tapestry made of beats and synthesiser. Progressive and thoughtful, the build-ups and flairs of musical colour glisten in curtained rooms, where if we look through the cracks in the fabric we see the inner workings of the craftsman.
It finishes with an open and spacious ambience which twists and winds through cryptic cosmic structures. Energy sprays from positive to negative as electrodes move within range of the source of music. A creaking synth bubbles and shifts on its own weightlessness as distant and nearing cyber entities snake in worming trajectories. Subtle glistening on greasy lamps behind paper-work towers drift as we pace through the delirium. Final Sequence is a smooth breather, full of presence and casual tension. The shorter time on this final track means we appreciate the individual bars a whole lot more.
