TBR: 6th July
Parisian Morgan Blanc has been quietly dominating the decks at renowned dance venues all over Europe. Petit Bain, Badaboum, and Katerblau have all hosted this esoterically moving mixer of darkness and light. Austeric melody gives away portions of emotion while sonic gardens interspace moments of nurtured sound ecology. Bipolar inspired progressions from overshadowed gloom within experimental resonance bring forth a musicality of pleasure and moving energy.
As Awake opens the four track EP, a sullen bass tone progresses alongside cymbal snaps and retro inspired percussive resonances. Crumbling deep and far reaching intensities are pegged down to grassy material by a matrix of almost organic drum formulations. As a gothic symphony plays out in a distant corridor, the compression and remnants of its gloomy energy project into interesting curbs and tangents of squashy dark dance.
A sudden lunge of effected drums allows Keep Moving to bring track two across to our ears. An interstellar space battle of sounds ensues with crafty bass lines and catching drum loops which continually evolve. Crunchy tones of under reaching bass reverberate as padding for whistle like submerged vibrations and montages of electronic riff. Pulsing melodics in simple patterns give the sometimes chaotic amalgamation of mindfully mixed sounds a framework that fits.
Synthwave shininess escapes from the bottle as Pressure unveils the third mix. A progressive bass beat with experimentally crafted drums pans out into a walking pace tromp through lush chords and intense breakdowns. Vocals add a whispery element of humanity while a digital symbiosis of sound and rhythm gradually evolves into various spectacular shapes. Retro phonics from the synthesiser sprinkle the sound in glowing energy that's vibrant and dowsed in warmth. These grow in amplitude until their sparkling backdrop covers everything in a fruity and fun summertime beach scene.
Along with the bass driven Whisper Me A Secret, Confidences marks an epoch in the timeline of heavy duty electronic music. Excellent listenability combined with dirty and dusty lines that roof and carpet the thunder gives out to these four nuggets of deliciously dark and deeply morish mixes.
