Pressure point joins the experienced roster of producers, reviving his more experimental alias after three sold-out releases, including the previously featured D:fferent Place. ‘Timepiece’ showcases the versatility of his productions in this emotive banger.
Dreamy, uplifting synths gleam in conversation with a shifty bassline that could slot delightfully into a peak time DJ Masda set. Drum sounds are sharp, with a mean swing bringing a dusty, raw contrast to the euphoric mood of the track.
Timbres host a classic, retro aesthetic that takes ear with a multitude of scenes. Early support comes from Petre Inspirescu, setting the tone with ‘Timepiece’ at last year’s Epizode festival. Melodies have inoffensive and uplifting energy, shaping neat acid lines and featherweight string pads.
‘Wrong System’ ventures into darker, menacing territories, with an eerie wind chime melody springing above a paranoid bassline. ‘Tom Cat’ adds more depth to the release with a deep, heads down workout, alongside a ferocious remix from Spacetravel.
