TITLE: CARIAD EP
CAT NUMBER: DP004 (DIGITAL ONLY)
RELEASE DATE: 21ST NOVEMBER 2011
Loving the dynamics of this production. A well worked piece which provides a large sense of intimacy between the listener and the track – something only few producers can deliver. (UM)
Continuing from their previous experimental bass excursions Florida’s Dubporn collective draw for the talents of Inanna, one time garage/2-step stalwart of north America. Here though she opts for a
beautifully melodic approach in delivering an EP of sensually soothing downbeat to fit any after-hours mood perfectly.
‘Cariad’ immediately takes us back to a time where life was easy, nothing to worry about, innocence. The music-box melody and chimes combine with simple percussion in an Aphex Twin type piece that gets the replay everytime. It’s left up to her own remix to take it up a notch into the more broken beat territories that some may find even more blissful, keeping all the original elements and adding a little tempo with some warm bass to boot. Unbelieveably good music, so nice.
The experimental mix hears children laughing and a 4/4 kick that gives more movement whilst not overpowering the overall sense of wonderment and beauty held by the main music-box melody that gets even more embellished here. Then lastly Shoju gives ‘Cariad’ an overhaul and turns it into a more dancefloor slice of heads down, deep house music that will go down a storm come 3am at Fabric. Dubporn getting better and better.
