TBR: 17th September
Hamburg hotspot PAL Nightclub and electronic music DJ Faerber team together to establish TILT Records. This beats factory stands to make its first appearance as an impress with 070717 EP. Curiously titled, based on the date of Hamburg's G20 summit, the four track extended play gives Faerber a platform to work his magic to the highest degree. With a work ethic of no holds barred, the TILT music label brandishes the power of the podium for cutting edge and experimental artists to let the mantle drop.
As times have previously been challenging for both nightclub and artist, now that the coast is clear the music is able to reference these early days and express the wisdom within them. Thanks to a continual presence of the local police force, it's taken a long time to gain the trust of the nightlife loving community in Hamburg. Good things can't be kept down, however, and over time the residents and revellers have learned there is nothing to fear at PAL.
The music starts straight off the mark with a grabby dance beat. Layered bass and hat with a filling of electronic percussion give a flux of rhythm that rolls off the amp like cream. Melodic fills are included, these waver and sway through various effects as the undersections break down to allow for gradual builds. The pressure just gets more intense and with each new injection of sound, the tempo is garnished, fortified, and made more prominent. This is club soundtrack territory, and Faerber has got it just right. Dunmore Point takes us straight into the middle of the crowd and gets us moving to its well paced groove.
Liquor GPS takes on a new angle. A heavy thudding bass drum surrounded by quick tapping and percussive sprinkles of rhythm makes a dash for the corners. Leaving a wide open space for something new, it's the amplitude of various components that fill the gaps. Melody bass revs up the clockwork as the steady beat grows fatter and more heady with each pass of the stylus. Soon the inflections on the bass end become so prominent that all else is partially downed out. This temporary throb to the ears allows for subtle differences to suddenly reveal their destinations.
The third track is the title number, 070717 enters with a heavy bass which resembles the pulse of panic and intense action. Floppy bass tones lay either side of the thumping percussion and build an eerie sensation of urgency. More synth flow slings sound over the top and underneath and further depths are reached by the plunging rhythms. As the cymbal sound gathers its action plan and puts it in motion, a new layer of forward thrusting energy brings further face to this intense number, A test of nerve and a frantic dancefest for the floor, the EP has taken us to brilliant heights of energy in just three tracks.
The EP finishes on track number four, Hazinky. Retro bass tones on a heavy synth matched with stuttering kick drum build a robotica futuristic feel. Perhaps during periods of great inner resilience, focussing on the future days to come is the best way to remain positive. Despite having their image stained by suspicions and over-protective law enforcement, continual parties and staying true to the ideal of experimental and fresh sounding electronic music paid off in the end. This EP marks the occasion, the first of many pieces of high energy music to emanate from this cultural collaboration of modern artists.
