After a more than well-received first release, Interstate Records is back with a shimmering and diverse EP. Featuring two original cuts by the label heads Dial Tone on the A-Side, plus two outstanding remixes on the flipside, the record serves as a fitting successor to the label’s thriving start.
On 'Lucid', the title track, Dial Tone show their distinctive skill to create an ongoing trip and let the listener immerse in its energetic melancholia. 'Cypher' kicks off on a slightly deeper note, however, only until a dazzling synthesizer line drills itself through the drums.
The B-Side contains two remixes of 'Cypher'. Cadency (also known as Hector Oaks) transforms the track into a fully equipped dance floor bomb. The chopped up, reverberated synth and the somewhat weirdly shivering percussion make the track stand out as a perfect example of Cadency's signature sound.
The final track of the record is a dreamy cut by Figure affiliate Viers. After slightly more functional releases on Len Faki's label, the man from Leeds shows his spherical and cinematic side - nailed it! [info from tv]
