TBR: 15th February
Loose Fit has its home in Berlin however they also run exclusive events in Manchester and Tokyo. Their brand of high energy party music for electronic fans has seen them format several parties and nightlife events as well as steadily dishing out quality vinyl releases. Loose Fit 003 is headed up by Pépe, already established and fortified in the scene with releases on Renascence, Deep Sea Frequency, and Lobster Theremin. It's well known that Pépe is a dab hand at mixing and mastering, as established and well-loved Anti Skate, Midnight Themes, and Easy Tiiger have all requested remix credits from this talented musician. Billed as music for raving to, this double A side and a remix from Lauer needs to be taken seriously.
Beginning with singing pads, reaching into the sky, a quick paced funky rhythm adds a dancing beat. Rapturous drums and cymbal taps spill neat lines of class in front of us, melodic percussion gives a new flavour, layerings of beat and tone combine to bring uplifting sensations. Revolving sonics in the background swell and warble with their adjusting tonalities as the punchy rhythm sustains a glorious feel good factor. Laser strikes and vocal samples fill a brief void, and the melody and drum pushes on to further lift up the room. Light (High As You Can See) sounds amazing, with catchiness from the start. An electro bass finds its way in for a solo at the half way mark, and it breaks free from its oppressive compression to grow into a tree-trunk of timing and tone. The music falls back into place, pushing the bass back in the mix to finish on an ever increasing high.
Trouble Glider starts with a melody like the shape of gently moving clouds. Bass drum kicks in to bring a sensation of floor to the upward facing tune. Drum and cymbal add to twisting shapes all the while as constant motion in the sky reveals ever shifting colours. Airy notes sprinkle heavy textures on even spaced points, firmly rooted and balanced with each other. Rivers of percussion roll down the hillsides and as they greet each other in the luminous valleys, their combined efforts provide a bouncy and enjoyable frolic through fields and woodland. Cosmic openness with a homely swing within choices of chord and scale gives Trouble Glider a relaxing zone yet manages to be forward facing enough to inspire motivation.
The Lauer remix of Trouble Glider opens with the same heavenly pad synths, bustling for a space in the sky. A new rhythm, bright and sunny, breaks from the forest floor and reaches to meet the melody. Extra elements of drum are given air to breathe, and as the beats roll out and progress, it's topped with a steady and juicy bassline. Plucky notes bounce from one cloud to another while skylight style synthesiser radiates across the whole room. The sonic space is built from glass, transparent and reflective surfaces sparkle around us and the continual evolution of music carries a happy and uplifting euphoria. Bouncy chords and spinning notes form a surface for strings to throw their drawn out voices across like flat plains of lush surroundings. High energy and sensations of calm form a double sided experience of dancing pleasure.
