Are We There Yet?
Science Cult Records
Out 11th June
Tel-Aviv based 303 magician Itay Davies is making his mark on America's Science Cult imprint. This new EP takes the style and works the rhythm into a frenzy of mixes that aim to please. Including a remix from Orlando Voorn, we get 2 originals and 2 perspective bending remasters that bring Israeli music to the forefront.
It opens with a fun and bouncy rhythm that pops and booms with an elasticated bass-line. Snares jostle with metal-work as the kick provides a steady thrust. Extra layers of synthesiser meld into one another as percussive melody entangles with the rhythm. Harmonies rumble through as the persistent beats continue to bash down their stylised perspective.
The End Of Voyage Mix of Are We There Yet comes next. It has a deeper, more wholesome bass tone that lifts the music straight away. Jungle drums chant melodious messages in timed tunes as percussive sounds scratch and jingle on all the beats. A gradual progression builds as the drumming infuses like strong tea into the swirling currents of synthesiser. New layers of harmony unravel like thread and stitch themselves neatly into the ever growing flow. Around the half-way mark, the music breaks down to eerie synthesiser orchestrations that rise into being as the rhythm re-emerges.
Next up is the Orlando Voorm remix. It starts with thumping bass and pounding tom-toms that resonate with rattles and cymbals. Synth bursts colour the atmosphere with firework like explosives before a deep bass thump bell begins to tell its story. The shuddering bass continues to grow and mutate under the weight of the towering drums. Sparkles of ambience drift through the heaviness like shoals of fishes swimming against the flow.
The final number is another original. Euphoric synthesiser rings out to the dig of a thumping bass and clap rhythm. Hats begin and throw the tempo into the next gear before a new layer of bass twangs and fizzes with composed flux. The drumming grows with a gradual progression as extra layers of subtle melody illuminate nooks within the structure. In Front Of Control evolves with each section, layers of synthesiser reverberate and amplify around the continuation of bass and snare.
