US-based music platform Electronic Groove Records has launched his brand new label division, kicking off the imprint with an exciting EP from Freedo Mosho. Already supported by artists like Sasha, Hernan Cattaneo, DJ Steve Lawler, and Damian Lazarus, Freedo Mosho renders three emotive tracks verge on the classification of deep techno but very much blurring the lines between techno and house.
‘Blue Tribe’ kicks off the EP with minimal percussion and the occasional pad making an appearance here and there, with plenty of distortion giving the track a corrosive edge atop a thick cushion of sub-sonic foundations. A pinch of bass, along with snippets of voice samples, put the finishing touches on what is a very sparse and atmospheric tune.
‘Time Capsule’ starts on a more energetic tone, with a driving beat alongside chilling synth stabs that mark the rhythm, and deep, sinister voices drenched in reverb and echo. This track could work well in an after-hours set, thanks to its moody-yet-intense sound. Dark and foreboding, it gets inside your head and doesn’t let up.
Closing the EP is ‘Aad Honorem’, a more subdued and melodic track, but one that carries its own punch as well. With a steady groove marking a slower, more deliberate pace than the other tunes on the EP, it feels simpler and lighter, but amid the quirky samples and arrangements lie a well thought-out rhythmic core and effective harmonics that complement the overall detached feel of the track.
