For this EP, the duo teams-up with Mobile Soul System, a Russian producer and DJ with an intense activity in the underground scene. The collaboration adds energy to the whole story, showcasing a strong minimal rhythm that flows elegantly with the other tracks. With works published by Minordub, Zeitlos, Binaural Arts, Frucht, Enough! Music, Phunk Traxx, Introspection, and more to follow, Entoniu & Agape are enjoying a productive period, as it seems they are always working on something in the studio.
The title track “Multumesc Mult” opens the EP on a dubby note, having reverberating chords and effects in focus, while the percussion is techy and relaxed. Grainy textures and cavernous sounds contribute to the build-ups, creating an alluring spatial dimension. The remix, on the other hand, features a hypnotic glitchy percussion, smoothly blended with wobbling effects and micro patterns. The bassline sweeps the low frequencies with style and a subtle melodic sequence gently morphs in the background. “Ceresc” unfolds as a pumping composition that incorporates a variety of styles. A vocal sample leads the cut while bright melodic atmospheres evolve into a trance-like pattern that makes your mind start wandering into places. The rhythm is balanced and steady making this track perfect for any dancefloor. Closing, there’s “Numar Privat”, a minimalistic piece designed with a heavy rotating percussion that goes from a stripped-down, and sometimes, syncopated beat, to moments of breakbeat infused arrangements. A swirling effect emphasizes the groove and bleeping notes are there to capture your attention. Another smooth EP coming from the two, standing as a statement to their versatility as rising and talented producers.
