Artist: Andre Crom
Title: Acid Space EP
Label: OFF Recordings
Release: Out Now!
A-Lister Andre Crom returns with his unique, relentless Techno vibe in the form of a three track original EP that, once again, sets off the furious flames conjured through powerful 303 basslines and thumping, energetic drum patterns. The world-class producer stamps his authority on the Techno scene time and time again, and this absolute monster of an EP keeps the momentum going into overdrive.
Title track ‘Acid Space’ is everything we expect it to be and more. The track gets underway with a modulating 303 bassline which rumbles through every inanimate object in the room. A bright synth reverberates in the background to give a nice atmosphere. The track builds erratically, the excitement grows. Delays fill the air, then boom we are back in and off into orbit. What a track!
‘Drum Track’ has a more minimal vibe with a deep grooving bassline. A nice reverb guides the percussion which makes up the looping groove in the mids. The track breaks into a mystical arena led by the ‘Drum Track’ vocal which is saturated in a lovely dub delay before taking off back into that swinging drop. This is certainly a track to fill the voids and take the adventurous vibes into another plain.
‘Chaos And Form’ really grabs hold of our attention and takes us into another world. The strange, simplistic bassline is surrounded in bright drums and melodic chimes soaked in atmosphere. The snappy 909 is blended perfectly to give the track a tonne of energy throughout all the frequencies. When glued together as a whole, this track becomes one that can really get the pulse racing and get us absolutely pumped for a dark, intimate club night.
