Premiere: 2 – Bread & Butter – Agheazm [STAMINA004]

Bread & Butter - EP artwork

Symetric Sound digital sub-label Stamina with its latest online offering. The Swiss platform accounts for all, distributing vinyl through Symetric at the same time. Those interested in the download will find three in the Stamina back catalogue and number four is about to drop. Bread & Butter takes charge with his Immortal EP.

The Romanian artist might best be known for his involvement in the ABC Collective. The trio continue to release on their own imprint whilst throwing their own parties. Alongside stage hosting the likes of Raresh and Sepp, the group of artists have also made their way to the famed Sunrise Hub. The four hour stream is well worth a look in.

‘Agheazm’ is quite the masterpiece. Floating gently through a time warp of musicality, skewed chords tease an elegant delicacy while tainted stabs of white noise dust over in atmosphere. Groove brushed bassline plods through nonchalantly, surrounded by carefully placed clicks and intricate slaps of percussion.

So many small pieces puzzle together, breathing life into a minimalistic story. Characteristics seep through brief acapella and solemn synths hollowed in expression. This could be quirky conversation from a distant realm – mysterious, calm and inquisitive all the same. You might not hear this in the heat of the moment, more likely on the chill or deep into the afters.

The EP as a whole is an introspection into the weird and nervy, often twisted and dark yet centred around rhythm. It comes out tomorrow made up of five tracks, available for purchase via digital download on Bandcamp.
