Arriving on There Is Love On You, following killer releases from Posthuman, Denham Audio and Saturday Night Rush, comes a sci-fi soaked five-tracker spanning headsy techno, proggy-trance and chugging ethereal noise from ‘Us’ founder Desire, who heads the project that aims to ‘shine the light on queer people’ through releases and mixes.
‘Express Self Love’ sounds much like the expression of ecstasy. Spacey atmospheric and ear-wriggle acid lines meet in a dimly lit room with dark techno, electro and trance for a proper heads-down affair. ‘Dernier Souffle’ is a cut of contemporary progressiveness being championed by labels such as Kalahari Oyster Cult and Butter Side Up – minimal, malfunctioning and dubbed-out goodness.
‘Keep Moving’ maintains a meaty bassline that threatens to overflow at almost every turn – moments of celestial high-ends emotional transfixation sparkle amongst the tough-as-nails techno – before ‘Incisiveness’ follows up with what might be the fun-loving twin of its predecessor; a cut of peak moment, intellectual techno-trance.
The tempo comes down on ‘Voyage Infini’; a chugging cut of transcendental synthwave best played as the sun is just coming up.
