for the fifth instalment on their label the vbx crew taps frontman ferro once more. his ďi change, just like you epĒ is a self proclaimed artistic statement from the man, whos rising star shows no signs of slowing down.
spokenn, the musical merging of minds between ferro and reiss. both are figureheads of the amsterdam scene and key proponents of the vbx brand. inviting the duo to showcase the first fruits of their labor on the label felt like a perfectly natural progression of things.
the title of their first ep is an homage to the intricate process of making music together. limbic resonance is defined as a symphony of mutual exchange and internal adaptation whereby two mammals become attuned to each otherís inner states.
after having spend the better part of the past years debating, playing and creating music, the two step up. the resulting 3 tracker is in equal parts introspective as it is geared towards the dance floor. a statement that is further underlined by the ongoing pre-release support from key players like cristi cons, vlad caia, and tini.
donít miss out on this first effort by the very promising duo spokenn!

after 3 years of hosting and co-hosting several successful events the guys at vbx decided to expand their musical horizon in the form of a vinyl only label. none other then vbx mainstay ferro is responsible for the kickoff ep. >time will tell< perfectly showcases the various facets of ferro s musical persona. the a-side track >time< is the most introspective and hypnotic on this ep. the background atmospherics swell and fall, while the rhythm steadily chugs forward, slowly making you lose your sense of time. the growling sounds and heavy kicks that form the backbone of >mushin< make this track the most straightforward club banger of the bunch, while still maintaining an edge through the intricate sampling of armand van helden s >the funk phenomenon<. ferro rounds up the ep with >opening the seven<, nagging vocal snips serve as a melodic hook while distorted rhythmical elements give the track its typical ferro sense of swing.
