With her latest EP, Special Calibration EP, Rotterdam-based producer Beyun makes her much-anticipated return to the Rotterdam label she founded back in 2019, Vault Wax. Both Beyun and her Vault Wax-cohorts have been releasing music guided by their love of deep, mind-altering acid house with roots in both Detroit and UK House. This EP finds the label boss digging even deep into these sensibilities, delivering 4 multi-layered, cosmic tracks of Detroit and UK-inspired house and electro.
Closing track of the EP is the downtempo odyssey, “Central Kinematics”. The track unfurls in a riveting display of lush pads, UK garage-leaning drums, warped acid lines, and chime-like synths. Deep and hypnotic, Beyun displays an uncanny ability to fuse classic elements of Detroit deep house, UK garage, and downtempo with her own unique, experimental sensibilities. Despite its low-key vibe, Beyun maintains just enough tension and forward-momentum throughout the track so it feels like it is continually building right up until the very last, washed-out notes.Pre-order.
