Suitably, 'Far Fetcher' acts as a warm
welcome, inviting the listener inside its richly deep
analogue soundscapes, closely reminiscent of deeper
sides of classic house rhythms that have emanated
from USA. It's pace provides for a perfect way to start
off the dance floor moving, while it's synth-vocal
exasperations create soulful depth which maintains
powerful sense of impressionist melodicism.
Things get darker and more aggressive with
'Musketeers', a dub-heavy rhythm that drives one to
involuntary movement due to its relentless repetition
and such repetition's subtle swing. The amalgamation
of synth along with the pulsating sub invigorates one
to move and bounce along with these elements.
'Fantasy' is the rare specialty. The cut provides
rhythms and groove for the penultimate party vibe. It's
funkiness and transcendent melodies drive the vocals
to the extent of ecstasy.
The calm-down moment is brought by '64 Bars', a
rhythmic, synth-inflected break progressions captured
in one of many live sets of Ekkohaus'. Arthur Russel’s
haunting vocalisations hint towards techno and
experimental scenes, while its warmth never escapes
the medium of the vinyl record.
