“Drawing heavy inspiration from moody cinema and the raw, gritty undertones of lofi elements, this collection of mine manages to capture and amplify fond sound textures and seamlessly integrates them within techno structures.”Pheek
Opening Side B, “Forgotten Name” drops a solid groovy ride into the ever-amazing world of minimalism as the track rolls out. The driving percussion remains in the background leading the composition yet the focus falls on the eerie atmospheres and meandering chords which take hold of the background arrangements. The other tracks “Wija”, “Stage Dive” and “Corrosif” are equally formidable, creating immersive sceneries that will make you dance and wonder with your mind at the same time.
Delving deep into the shadowy realms of filmic soundscapes, Pheek‘s latest EP is a masterful blend of darkness and texture. Drawing heavy inspiration from moody cinema and the raw, gritty undertones of lofi elements, this collection manages to capture and amplify fond sound textures, seamlessly integrating them within techno structures. At its core, there is an unmistakable cinematic ambience, an aura that paints a picture of suspense and mystery. But don’t let the atmospheric subtleties fool you. Beneath the misty veneer lies a pulsating heart of energy, with layers that rhythmically surge and ebb. It is a sonic journey that is as intricate as it is evocative, showcasing the artist’s prowess in both craft and creativity. Prepare to immerse yourself in a world where each track tells its own enigmatic tale.
