Niv Ast & Eliezer
The Untold Story Of Del Fiero
New Day Everyday Records
TBR: 15th May
Jumping into the wave, fully standing on a surfboard of great sounds, comes New Day Everyday Records. This brand new label administered by EP artists Niv Ast and Eliezer, plus Daniel Weil of Silenco and Le Garage, wants to be a home for post-punk techno fusion that sounds as fun as it is to make. Collaborative artists Niv Ast & Eliezer both live in Tel-Aviv, a city fast becoming synonymous with experimental and fresh electronic dance music. The pair have enjoyed a stint of DJ sessions over the past year while on an extensive and party fuelled tour, and this gelling of talent has culminated in this recording of four mixes, each one dripping with their home-brewed style. Joining forces with Daniel Weil, who's based in Paris, this trio of technicians sets the tone with The Untold Story of Del Fiero.
With a chunky bass-line and bouncy kick drum, the first track begins the record. Blippy tones add yet another layer of movable bass to the flow, filling the groove with a delicious liquid. Then, rolls of percussion unravel across the whole, building pressure and atmosphere with each bar. Extra effects work their way in, vocal like expressions and repeating phrases of quick drumming merge with the continuous bassline snaking around in its binary melody. Martians In Pluto is perhaps suggesting feeling alien in a new layer of alienation that makes everything doubly as confusing. Life is dualistic after-all, and this track takes this to artistic levels with suggestions of heavy melody hammered into panicky beats.
La Passioneta (Ft. Adrien Albou) starts with a tubular rhythm, full of mechani-digital movement. Springy levers and sliding armatures click-clack in a rotating rhythm while gentle beats bring a boiling fusion to the top. This gives way to catchy guitars and grabby rock drums which quicly grow to incorporate rock music just as much as dance. A sampled beat and guitar riff with a layer of distorted melody gives this track a whole new direction. Coarse vocals begin to whisper loudly over the cut before a trancey synthesiser begins to cast progressive tones into each rhythmic bar. This number has progression and it has attitude, the best of both worlds entirely.
Digi-bass opens track three. Simple steps of rhythmic twang begin the motion, soon to be joined by an equally as minimal bass drum. Spongy synthesiser tones play a bassline melody which wanders and meanders around the slow moving kinesis. Then, a distinct drone cuts through the staggered timings to draw a thread of deep colour through the ambience. New drums play talkative rhythms across the edges of the piece, various drums and items present unique tones and shapes as they're struck by the right moment. The slow and dreamy Sneg likes to take its time. Gradual increases in layering build a poetic and deep sculpture of sound and intention.
A catchy dancing beat starts for the finale number. Tmuna Memusgeret (Ft. Uriah Klapter) starts on another minimal techno inspired rhythm with light housey drums matched with dropping bass lines and deep tones. Synth stabs rhythmically dig a new layer in the hole which airy melodies fritter themselves away in the entropic sunlight. Mechanical engine sounds crawl over and their roadway comes close, dropping off new elements and atmosphere in the music. More vocal samples, with distorted phonics, swaddle the driving beats and with each new bar, additions to the mix in effect and amplitude increase the over-all intensity. Another dance-hall offering, it's really interesting at the same time.
