Gorge & Markus Homm
Poker Flat Recordings
TBR: 20th August
Sitting on the edges of niche and classic circles, both Gorge and Markus Homm have invented a circle in the cosmos just for their fans. Expertly crafted house and electro requires a stack of skills, with many thinking they too can layer beats, there's gourmet and there's gormless. This five-star duo carry decades of experience between them and collaborating on this snap-up EP is their little gift to the shared love of music. Gorge has taken a moment away from running his co-founded 8Bit Records where-as Romanian scene-setter Homm leans over from his 20 plus year show to put together this sparkling two-tracker.
The music begins with a shuffle beat that's ramped up with bass and snare. Brush drumming sloshes the percussive sounds into a cauldron of tempo. Synthesiser bass pumps a restrained motif as the drumming gathers pace in a mixing of layers. The bass grows, plucked sounds join the throng, then a sudden deepening as a powerful kick-drum fills an unknown silence. Dapples and crisps of fluctuating higher tone flow in the gaps between colliding beats and subtle mystery. Progressive, catchy, and uplifting, Holos takes us to a new dimension in sound.
As Glint fires up, yet another smashing house groove unwinds from the bobbin. It's got drums and bass that wrap us up in a rhythmic blanket. We're compelled to shift our bodies as the gradual pressure rises. A strange vocal sample utters over a strong reverb as a neat bass function begins to operate. Introspective semblances of funk flavoured sound whisk and whir within a wonderment of up-flow and dynamism.
