Football Player – FP001 [Football Player]
Ukrainian mastermind Kirik presents yet another very intriguing and adventurous material in the form of “FP001”, a four-tracker that explores the uplifting house and minimal-infused rhythms under the Football Player alias. The tracks deliver a slightly different sound compared to his latest releases with Crocus, Bosom LTD, Shamaan’s Hidden Cult, Artreform or Black/Tuesday, standing as a solid argument for his skills as a producer of fine modern electronic music.
Kirik has been activating on the international scene for quite some time now, with his selections being enjoyed by thousands of people and with his productions being supported by a lot of DJs. From Kherson, Ukraine to the whole world, he managed to pull out top-notch music for more than 10 years now while collaborating with other artists and labels that are definitely iconic to the movement and make no compromises what so ever. This venture hints at the fact that the artist used to be a professional football player yet his passion for music, mixing and producing brought forward a fingerprint sound which made others enjoy his presence behind the decks more than anything.
“Kiss My Face” opens Side A with a joyous vibration which combines numerous glitched micropatterns with deep house arrangements and solid drumming sequences. The breakdowns reveal subtly modulated vocals that add more depth to the composition while the synth work aims at the dancefloor. Following, “Scusa Signora” reveals wobbling build-ups that focus on evolving, warm background textures and a prominent voice that gives the track its title.
On the flipside, “Corner” provides a solid resonance that explores immersive synth harmonies being played alongside crisp percussion and bright pads while the closing cut “Block” switches the tempo but not the feeling. Panning is the main technique chosen here, while the delayed effects settle for a perfect balance accordingly to the uplifting rhythm. Another underground gem for true vinyl lovers coming from a revered artist right here!
