Ahead of a forthcoming EP on Midnight Riot dropping later this year, Norm De Plume makes a welcome return to his own label Plumage nearly a full 2 years since it s last release in 2015. PLUMAGE05 is Norm s 3rd solo EP for the imprint. A1 New Flow is vintage NDP fodder it s just the tempo that has risen. Two bars of obscure disco gets lifted, chopped & filtered. The emerging source material merging with Norm s own synth lines / swells and chopped vocal stabs - all underpinned by tight, chunky, grooving drums. Deep, Disco-House the way we like it. B1 Another Flow see s Norm explore more of his own original musical composition with this slightly deeper, more electronic cut. A soul vocal sits upon deep pads and a driving, gritty 1 note bass line. Pads and synths swirl and build and we get some wild modulation on the filters before the track breaks to slowly introduce a repetitive, rolling & pounding motif over which Norm lays some signature pads and a lovely simple lead-synth line.
The Revenge: "Norm De Plume's most solid effort yet - both are working for me!"
Shur-I-kan: "Another Flow is sounding heavy!!"
Ben La Desh: "Sounding nice! Another Flow is my favourite, lovely energetic groove! Loving the "De Plume" drums, pulsing chords, driving bassline and the vibe switch halfway into the track. Great EP!" [txt from ]
