FIT SOUND Records
Out 31st March
FIT Siegel returns with more sounds for the first time as a solo musician since 2015. Fans will remember the January 2019 collaboration with veteran Kassem Mosse, called Saboten. For Spring 2020, we're treated to Formula. This three track single release is made in honour of those who find an escape in music. So, prepare to be lifted away from your body and have your stresses unpicked one by one as this dose of transcendence plays out.
The music opens with a swervy melody, shimmering on adjusting vectors. A rhythm is added, snares and hi-hats shuffle in a neat and shining tempo. The combination grows with an increasing tonal pressure. Evolution is subtle, the music gradually shifts and chops with added beats. Underneath, synthesiser pads rumble with astral radiance. Repeating phrases mingle with progressive melody and bubbly scales. Exist On is a dreamy rendition of happy moments where our worries are all a keystroke away.
A chunky fizz bass opens for the title track. Formula begins with a one-two drum-beat and a melodic rumble in the undergrowth. It makes my knees shake as the bass rips through the air. Twinkling bells add a high end section to the mix. They dance in spiral melodics which keep the tempo as well as colour the walls. Discordant tones then ring out in the weft of the matrix. Their adjacentness and strange correlations distinguish themselves and shift the track's energy towards the mysterious.
It finishes with a retro-robotic riff which grinds and shines along a selection of notes. Sky-facing notes shine from pillars of illumination to match the digging sensation of the bass. Blipping notes find a middle ground to form a trio of synthesiser which dances in a choreographed melee. Steady drums pound in the spaces between melodic motif as the music changes in graceful computerised shifts of program. Wayne County Stomp is a fun and exciting whist through memories of previous technology.
