With some releases you simply need time to get into it, to feel the energy and the awesomeness, that’s exactly what’s the new Clouds “Consciousness EP” give to me. After some audio samples I got it and that’s why I’m little late with this post and with my buy recommendation!
Fully battle-tested after a tour of duty as Tiga’s top-secret DJ weapon, “Consciousness” fuses the energy and vitality of Clouds early stadium-friendly output with the ideas, craft and skill of high-minded techno veterans. The track gets remixed by two of today’s freshest UK underground dance minds. Hot off a release on Blawan and Pariah’s Works the Long Nights imprint, Ireland’s Sunil Sharpe hooks the original up to an acid IV before pounding your face into every square inch of the warehouse floor. Meanwhile, London’s Randomer – responsible for some of our favorite records of the past year on Numbers and Hemlock – pushes the proceedings into uncharted peak-time blackout territory.
The release is rounded out by another original from the astonishingly young production duo. “Sonic Swamp” plumbs the depths of sparse, clanging percussion and emerging with an after-hours monster.
