Rhymos – Seizure EP [META]
Fresh off the back of his most successful year yet, Ben Rau is in the perfect place to usher in the next generation of production talents, and so the vinyl only META is borne.
With prior experience in label management coming via his own INKAL imprint, an outlet for Ben’s own productions, and with 4 represses on the first and second release respectively, Ben is in prime position to lend his hand to a new breed of production and DJ talent. Created with the aim of helping push those on the brink of becoming regulars on the leading labels and those most cult-associated as shining stars within the underground, Rhymos steps up to inaugurate the imprint in a reliably bass and heavy groove style.
A sterling name within minimal house & techno, that has been bubbling on the horizon throughout 2017, with headline appearances including Fabric’s main room as part of WetYourSelf!, Rhymos’ Seizure EP sets ablaze with the rolling subline of the title track, that is accompanied by shimmering hats which are intertwined with intermittent fx and synth licks throughout. Mi Casa Su Casa provides the perfect B-side, a more rough and ready approach that is mixed with ambient pads and spaced out stabs in the breakdown which break the track up nicely.
True to form, Ben provides a deeper touch to Mi Casa Su Casa, while still maintaining its dancefloor credibility. Glistening highs, hypnotic pads and minimal trademark glitches, coupled with blissful chords and delayed vocals permeate Ben‘s remix, stripping the track back to just its rumbling low end and drums after the drop, which ensures the track slams and will whip even larger floors into a frenzy.
