I came across this after searching FYI Chris on the t'internet. This track is excellent, it reminds me of the Detroit stuff I used to buy back in the early 90's, what a tune!
Favorite track: Periferia (Original Mix).
Based in Tallinn, Estonia, young up-and-comer Andreas Kask offers up the inaugural release on new London based imprint X-Kalay.
Hot on the heels of his emotive three tracker for Amsterdam based imprint, Legendary Sound Research, Kask continues here in a similar vein. Saturated in machine warmth, we are unerringly taken on a journey through the analogue deep. Soundscapes shot through with the warm emotion and raw melancholy hues of a new Tallinn dawn.
On the A-side, "Periferia" opens with the heaviest of grooves, deep kicks and distorted toms punch out a deadly rhythm before we reach a blissed out jam. Only to be used on the latest of floors. "Orion Cloud Complex" is all euphoria and washed out vocals with a nod to early Joy O and reminiscent of something found deep inside Pepe Bradock's record bag.
On the flip "Untitled" is the ethereal trip, transcending space and time with it's skittering hats andweightless pads. Estonian hero and long time stalwart of the Tallinn underground; Ajukaja hits up the remix with typical aplomb. Through an intro of cut up vocals from a distant land he leads us into the smoothest of house grooves. This one is fire!
