Ben Sun / Mic Newman
FALL UPON YOU
12" Vinyl UK
The next Love Fever installment comes from party regular and Voyeurhythm co founder - Ben Sun backed up by Australias Mic Newman (aka Fantastic Man).
Together the pair fit the remit like a glove using nothing but the Juno-60, MPC60 and S3000 to bring together sizzling textures, swollen synths and sultry, creeping vocals and create a steamy and palpable atmosphere. "Fall Upon You" is a brooding opener - granular synths and clicks are propelled by a full-bodied throb and a softly rotating bass sequence. A vocal reprise is dropped in and out, bolstering progress alongside gently bubbling Juno patterns. Slightly more physical than it's predecessor, Ben Sun's own "Shadow Dance" steadily progresses behind flickering hats, darting clap patterns and a glacial synth drone. Vocals refrains fall in and out while melodies continually blossom until the close.
