Tiger Ride [Club Ride], up first, is a twitchy, glitchy affair with snippets of male vox, while Sweetness is a more melodic number with sweet-sounding synths and shuffly percussion. It’s the next two tracks that are the killers, though. Mirage is the kind of dark, industrial dub techno small mice would make if left in a huge cavernous warehouse with a bunch of synthesizers and some strong sedatives, while Shy Guy leans so heavily to the dub side of the equation that it’s really ‘technofied dub’ rather than ‘dub techno’, if you see what I mean. Rounding out the EP is Tiger Ride [Cinematic Ride], an only slightly more melodic take on the opening track.
Like I said though, it’s Shy Guy and Mirage that you need to check for here.
Out: This week
Oh yes, and I should also mention that this is the first in a series of ‘E’ eps that will be released over the course of the year: according to the hype sheet, “The E stands for Enneagram, a model of human personality that allows you to describe or to find out through which lens you see your reality.” Make of that what you will!
