aus follow up releases from bwana, sei a and fold with the welcome return of shenoda with his chromatic ep. throughout a catalogue thats included 12inches for hypercolour and manmakemusic as well as his exceptional debut labour ep on aus last year he has consistently and capably melded house and techno signified by his burly drum work and long, stirring breakdowns. his chromatic ep packs in three powerful cuts with blame, a track that drives a dense, staggered kick under blood-curdling tension and dramatic synth builds. musical mob then follows up with scuffling drums and a bold, peak-hour synth line before shores closes up with a shimmering sound-build giving way to a dense and full bodied bass pattern.
brad peterson, the talented producer from edimburgh, uk, creates a groove-laden atmosphere in its beats and a wholly mental climate with deep pads and chords, with fabulous energetic tension. in the other side banfield audio plays with hypnotic analogues basslines and deep sounds of pads, without stopping moving into the depths with its earth heart.

the first reference of this argentine label, monochromatic records, it is a serious bussiness. in one side, specter - a chicago producer that edit by labels like sound signature or sistrum- with a pure class organic and deep warm up track. on the other side is the banfield audio track, with a more floor oriented but yet deep and warm analogic sound.
after five years of experimenting with a string of different singers, chromatics introduced ruth radelet as the lead actress to star in their films in 2005. forever standing out from the crowd, chromatics imagined the soft rock focus of hall & oates stretched over a fleetwood mac beat. trading the dancefloor for gorgeous chords & melancholic strings. they lived where it was always late & neon lights glimmered across the wet streets. this record archives studio work between 2004 & 2006 leading up to the now infamous >night drive< album.

so much ink has been spilled all over the world about this album in the last three years. the crazy thing is, -night drive- as we know it was never meant to be officially released. originally intended only to be the cdr demo version of the incomplete album burned for a handfull of dates in california. that was the end of summer 2007. at that time, chromatics was mostly unknown throughout the world. with only a handfull of bootlegged demos floating through the ethernet, the music was far off the radar of the music industry. no one had any clue what was around the corner. soon the press would get ahold of it, & the album would spread like wildfire overnight. the rough mix was done in portland on a lunar eclipse the night before chromatics left for their first leg of performances with new singer ruth radelet.
