Lumieux – Ethernals EP [AKTA records]
“Ethernals” in memory of Max,
After a first appearance on the 3rd VA alongside Hendriks Toth, Romain Proust And Cosmic Clap. Lumieux shows off some very fine drum programming skills on this new EP which is as flexible and sublime as tech house and minimal. The kicks and bass of “Ethernals'” lock you into a hypnotic groove, then “Not Enough” allows a little more room to get lost in the swirling pads and trippy effects. Next comes the remix from Austrian artist Paul Walter “Rolling Snow” which is intense and hard-hitting, like watching a storm in reverse, the original version ends with more winding acid lines and mid-tempo tech funk.
