Masivarium – Eternity EP [Masivarium]
Dragut Adrian a.k.a. Dragutesku, with several releases on Fapte Records, Tupiar Records, Modeight and numerous Various Artists contributions, teams up with Michael Triky and Marius Leonte a.k.a. Soundskin, member of Circuit 808 and founder of Let It Play Records, to form Masivarium, a live electronic music project, with techno at its core but with influences from various genres that add up to the final compositions. After their first release in April this year, titled Infinity EP, romanian trio returns this December with Eternity EP, a limited edition vinyl-only release, now in pre-sale on deejay.de.
Their sound signature and musical identity is a fresh yet strong presence on the scene and the trio is focused on releasing through their own self-titled record label, thus building on the uniqueness of the Masivarium project.
We also heard that one of the members could be the one behind the DRG SERIES, a set of mysterious and excellent romanian underground releases.
Side A opens with “Rise“, a melodic and deep sequence that kicks in with 808 drums rolling in a progressive style over deep modulated pads combined with long vocal cuts filtered through frequency shifting synths. Next is “Eternity“, a complex build up of feelings that reflect upon moments of bliss and eternity. Electric synths, a subtle gorgeous bassline and an exquisite piano rhythm are the ingredients of this soul shaking composition.
Side B features “Reflex“, a playful acid take, with short synths building tension to trigger that specific reflex of dancing and “Abis“, a spacey up & down rhythm that gives you the sensation of falling asleep and waking up on another planet.
