“Without ethics, man has no future. This is to say, mankind without them cannot be itself. Ethics determine choices and actions and suggest difficult priorities.” – John Berger
Opening Side A, “Hmood” by Bryz lays out a smooth and funky steady-paced rhythm elegantly complemented by groovy synth melodies, warm background textures and mysterious vocal samples that call for a dance. Designed in the artist’s distinct style, the track definitely counts as a steaming addition to any peak-time selection at any party.
Following, Lukea‘s “Nocturnum” dives deeper into nighttime sounds, delivering an immersive atmosphere powered by bright synth pads, ethereal insertions and spacious breakdowns, while on the flipside Vern‘s “Audioportation” drifts into uplifting shades of progressive and dubby affairs. Closing, “Evolve” by Azire drops a rather different vibe yet maintains the energy and the feeling from the other tracks. Here, the shuffling of the drumming patterns intertwines with subtle glitched layers and whispers bringing forward a hypnotic rhythm perfect for the afterhours. A highly recommended record right here for collectors and selectors alike!
