Review: Pattern Society VA [P.S. 002]

Having introduced you all to the Pattern Society back in March of this year via the label’s first foray from co-founder S.O.N. With their first release close to selling out the Berlin based label returns with a VA from four original cuts. The four artists on show here ensure that the full spread of genres is well catered for in this digital only release.

Kicking off the VA is the bleepy ‘System Shit’ from Aamir and the coupling dubby synth chords with snipped percussion produces a spacey roller with just the right amount of cosmic mystery. The finely tuned bassline undulates beneath the thudding kicks and hollow clicks effortlessly. Alex Zola follows this up with ‘Forbidden Planets’, a much deeper cut that still bangs just in a more serene direction. Floaty synths and pads punctuate the angular bassline nicely alongside a skipping drum motif.

Hitting the halfway mark in PS002 and L&F interlaces a high-energy garage infused beat with a distortion heavy synth line but with added funk for good measure. Rounding out the VA is S.O.N. and ‘Seaweed’ and the rolling nature of the track is aimed squarely at the dancefloor. The deep paddy bassline is balanced finely with the vocal clips and breathy samples to really envelope the listener. A truly captivating piece of deep techy house that perfectly presents their time in Berlin.

PS002 is now available via Bandcamp.
