    Eprom – Feldspar/Psycho (LSR002)

    a1) Feldspar (05:26)
    b1) Psycho (04:36)

    In time for the third anniversary of their Berghain residency, the Leisure System collective from Berlin comes with the second release of their newly found label. While the first release was an atmospheric and soulful take on UK-influenced electronic dance music by Russian producer Pixelord, the second release crosses the ocean and comes with a simple agenda: Providing the soundtrack for a rave of epic proportions.

    Responsible for the bass assault this time is San Franciso based producer Eprom. After releases on labels like Warp or Rwina and with one of the biggest tunes of 2010 („Shoplifter“) in his books, Eprom returns with nothing less than a 12“ full of peak time anthems.

    The A-side track, „Feldspar“, builds up a nearly unendurable tension throughout its intro, leaving the traditional trails of simple and mix-friendly build-ups and exploding into a cathartic tempest of screaming synths and bass. A track like a 140-bpm wrecking ball, made for rewinds and dancefloor freak-outs.

    The flipside, „Psycho“, brings the speed down, but keeps up with the raw energy of the 12“. It plays around with a straight-forward 808-driven hip-hop beat, a bouncing 80s electro bassline and a rough 8-bit melody, making it sound like something that a modern-day Alan Howarth could have written, if part of Snake Plissken’s mission would have been to rave.

    Instead of varying the same idea over two sides of a 12-inch or being functional (and easy forgettable) dj-tools, the 12-inch shows different, unique sides of a gifted producer. It’s also proof that the minds behind the Leisure System collective are eager for pushing the boundries of rave-music, while keeping the spirit of traditional dance music labels alive.
