Cardopusher and London-based label Super Rhythm Trax join forces again after the acidic EP released back in 2016, and boy it’s a good one. The UK peeps at SRTX couldn’t hope for a better start to 2018 as this EP is their first of the year.
Unsurprisingly you will find acid in this 4 tracks EP. A1 Trust Your TV features a squelching and distorted 303 sequence playing over and over again with some drum action in the background and a heavy kick to keep you in the groove, very repetitive – never boring.
Here for the acid stuff? Switch directly to B1 and you will be greeted by Mircobes, here to please the bigger crowd with a techno feeling and more production value, it’s as rough as they come and beautifully unpolished for the pleasure of the more hardcore dancers here at Bolting Bits HQ.
Now, the track we have the pleasure to premiere today is located in A2: Geotropism. Keeping the same raw drum programming we are used to in his productions, Cardopusher employs a bass slap sample for the low-end duties. The whole vibe of the track has a very 90’s digital feel to it and we don’t complain. Casio FTW
Closing the first-side *Never Fade Away* uses the same kinds of sound but on a more freestyle-oriented genre.
Last of the bunch, Mental Jobs sees the producer go into Nu Groove-esque territory and surprises us with the ability to make more laid-back track, laid-back compared to the rest of EP at-least. More of a dj-friendly track for those early hours it has a strong atmosphere of its own and will get those feet to continue dancing.
The EP is available right now!
