keith carnal is back with the 2nd release of our catalog, the 1st made a massive impact in the techno/electronic playground. played in every different platform this artist showed us how electronic music can reach many different levels and people. keeping a simple and unique style that many try to imitate, but nobody reach his level. 3 cuts w/ our man shlomo did the rest of the job, doing a very deep and intelligent remix.
shlomo opens the ep with a deep and droning, yet uptempo track. ben gibson continues on the a-side with a synth and tom-driven track, in which the main synth really draws you into the track. takaaki itoh is put on the b1 spot and continues the deep vibe the artists set on the a-side, yet in a more minimalistic way. his track keeps on evolving and growing ever more, while the track in it s core does not change that much. overall severity closes the ep off with a moody banger. this dance floor oriented track focuses on percussive elements and the drums a lot. this track is one of the last ones made by the late max_m, who formed overall severity together with wrong asessment, which makes this ep a little bit more special. four different artists, but a great sounding ep with four tracks that compliment each other really well!
