Evidence Found No.1 is an Anniversary compilation curated by the London Based label Little Beat Different. Featuring the likes of “Dempa” and “Regular Customer” as well as some found favorites, this compilation is driven by a powerful roster. One of the most notable tracks, “Break & Enter III” by Varum (soundcloud), exhibits a particularly authentic tone. Hailing from Leipzig, Germany, Varum has crafted a unique sound; blurring the lines between lo-fi house and techno.
The first noticeable thing about “Break & Enter III” is its organic textures and raw aesthetic. Varumʼs dark and gritty formula fuses a tight breakbeat pattern with lush and spacious pads, which creates an oddly nostalgic atmosphere. The 7- minute track meshes multiple motifs, each section carrying a slight variation of the main melody, which reads as somewhat of mini-mix. Aside from the songs structure, the production is top notch. The breakbeatʼs muted Hi hats and snares provide a stark and clever contrast to the glistening synths. “Break & Enter III” is a breath of fresh air when compared to todays polished EDM tracks, and will provide the perfect, fierce, crescendo for a set-closing track.
