Out 3rd September
Direct from the Russian landscape and with a powerful direction sharpened by recent events, Corvad instigates the gradual release of his new album. These two tracks start the party with a double-edged sword fused from the finest materials. Having established himself in a big way thanks to signings with Mau5trap and Soma, it's time for Corvad to throw another stone into the water. This time he's making waves on the shores of Cosmism and their eclectic circle of motivated music fans. A firm believer in his own direction and his own power to rise above the world, Circle puts the soundtrack to success in brand new clothes.
Robotic voices begin to chant a rhythmic semblance of sounds as various subtle synthesisers rise to greet the flow. A grasp of drums begins the engine like a key turning in the ignition and a throbular rumbling bass delivers a smooth and catchy tempo. Bass and cymbals rattle within the stream of sound as the rhythm shows us it's in charge. Drums take on a leading role, effects and breaks rise into a culmination of sensation before it breaks down into another build. Circle leads us round the edge of a tempting dance, teetering on the cusp of excitement until it hands over a generous dose of industrial sounding techno.
Next is Take Me. The track starts with a strange spookiness with rubbery friction and soaring pitched chills. A bass with amazing power begins to punch in at phenomenal speed as the samples and synths break from their bonds. An intense projection arises, frantic beats scamper in sliding floors as walls of resonating texture alert us with their presence. It boils down to eerie sounds again before that persistent and urgent bass throws a hardcore rise into the centre of the mix. One more round of panic fuelled ferocity pushes the pressure to beyond its safety mark but we all know this old engine can take a lot more.
We eagerly await the next chapter!
