Leonidas + Kay Suzuki return with more raw, deep and psychedelic grooves
Following Leonidas’s warmly received debut “Sequential EP”, featuring the cosmic collaboration with Kay Suzuki, “Interstellar Vibrations” (and “Interstellar Meditation”) which has won plaudits from several deep/psychedelic purveyors such as Theo Parrish, Nick the Record, Cedric Woo (Beauty & the Beat) and Manuel Göttsching (E2-E4), Leonidas + Kay Suzuki return with a higher tempo, deep, dancefloor friendly EP, without losing any of the analogue warmth and phatness that characterised the Sequential EP.
A1: Revolve consists of a series of deep, psychedelic, analogue synth sequences over an infectuous, raw, driving drum machine groove and accentuated by warm, flowing synth pads, building to a crescendo of evolving and responding analogue grooves and beats.
B1: Momentum is a driving, timeless, epic 11½ minute mid-tempo deep house journey reminiscent of the best Chicago, Detroit and British acid-house/techno.
Both tracks have been created using the Roland TR-707’s sequencer triggering the analogue synths which have been manipulated live and recorded as live performances. Additional layers of analogue synths were then recorded live and layered/arranged. None of the sounds have been created or triggered using the CPU, as part of the duo’s commitment to a raw, warm, analogue aesthetic.
前作Sequential EPでの共作"Interstellar Vibrations"がTheo ParrishやNick The Record, Manuel Gottsching(E2-E4)と言ったディープなダンスミュージックの大物達から大絶賛を受けたコンビが前作でも全面に出したアナログシンセの質感をそのままに今回はよりドライブ感を増した直球ダンスフロアトラックを２曲収録。
