feeder sound exclusive premiere: Macarie – Panzer [Verum]
After a successful launch last year with an amazing Various Artists compilation featuring Triptil, Bryz, Lulla and Venda, USA-based label Verum returns for its next musical odyssey with local artist Macarie at the helm delivering three fresh cuts designed with his distinct style. His undeniable production prowess steers through twists and turns offering moments of contemplation intermingled with bursts of euphoria. Titled “Out Of Streets”, the EP delivers a novel sonic landscape that blurs the boundaries between what is familiar and alien, advancing the notions of what music can be.
Heading Midas Touch and its MDT LTD side venture, Alexandru Macarie or shortly Macarie has been at the forefront of the Romanian electronic music scene for quite some time now, having numerous performances and releases under his belt. Through his labels he published top-quality productions from the likes of Chrivu, Maifaunu, Sonohat, RWN and Dumitrescu, while his personal works can be enjoyed on Cedesciu Wax, Vivus, Kontent, Alter Hour, Bohrium, PhonicHouse1 Records, Default and Sanguina Records.
“This EP showcases another side of my journey to finding my own sound. What inspired me most on these tracks was probably Carl Finlow, I remember I had these few months listening to many of his tracks. The creative process was a long one, maybe several weeks, but the outcome was worth it. Mostly, these tracks were done during the lockdown.”Macarie
The voyage begins with “Panzer” laying out an entrancing bassline that resonates above the surface, marking the onset of a new sensory journey. In addition, the broken beats, twisted background effects and mysterious futuristic vocals smoothly blend with lush breakdowns and arrangements, creating an immersive atmosphere.
The other two tracks are equally inspiring, yet very different. While “B08” takes the energy of A1 even further into the realms of minimal techno, breakbeat and IDM, the title track “Out Of Streets” switches gears for something completely different, dropping a swinging groove engulfed in breaks and subtle funky insertions, perfect for either the early afterhours, laid-back afternoon sessions or proper warm-up moments.
