B FROM E – This Is My House [BISPEBJERG]

B from E comes through with a 5 track ep on nascent Danish label BSP Bispebjerg’s fourth release. The opening track Dreamcore was tough to place at first, a slow burn acid trancey breakbeat hardcore throwback, and took a moment for me to get into. What felt like a slow start at first revealed itself to be the sort of banger you expect to hear when its already light out and nobody cares, partying past the sunrise into the next day with no worries.

The pace from the first song is continued into This is My House, a swung and housey super monkeyball style banger that is equal parts early 00s playstation game and renegade greenhouse rave. The playful piano stabs and the silly baseline make you want to skip to the arcade. The third track Trancois blindsides you with the purest of calls to masters like orbital and the orb, swelling pads and noodling synthlines get your brain meandering in just the right way. If this weren’t enough Main Phase and Lille Høg deliver on remix duty. Main Phase comes though with a sincere intelligent jungle remix while Lille Høg, who’s track is only available on the digital release follows up a later era feeling garage trance remix. Overall, this EP is drenched in just the right kind of nostalgia, and while the first track takes a moment to get a handle on, is a treat.
