DRED Records : ‘’CYRK deliver a three track energy trip of electro infused Italo house on DRED Records. The duo conjure up a collection of modern melodies built upon the roots of machine-made-disco. Each track is a weapon for the summer dance floor and the EP is chaperoned with a remix from the nuclear power house known as Italo Brutalo’’
‘More Cowbell’ leads with wandering synth lines, a classic arpeggio bass hook and tension building strings running alongside a bumpy cowbell driven rhythm. Title-cut ‘Balloonatix’ follows and sees the pair lay focus on an acid-tinged arp line, swirling atmospherics, saturated drums and twitchy robotic synth work.
Italy’s Italo Brutalo steps up next with his take on ‘More Cowbell’, offering a more subtly blooming, cinematic twist on the original before ‘Distant Bodies’ rounds out the EP, embracing an amalgam of 80’s leaning moog like synths at its core.
