    Glasgow’s Tribal Pulse imprint pushes forward this September with its second release, "Cosmos" by Deepfunk & Acidulant, backed with a Boom Merchant remix.

    Tribal Pulse kicked off with Boom Merchant’s "Temuijn" in July, garnering support from many leading names in the industry, namely, James Zabelia, Maceo Plex, Craig Richards, Xpress-2 and Laura Jones. On the second release, they welcome the production duo of Maltese producers Deepfunk (notably know for his work with Bedrock, Mircocastle, and Stripped), and Acidulant (An analogue head with a TB303 obsession) onto the roster, delivering more, heady, up-tempo workouts.

    The release kicks off with the original version of title cut, "Cosmos", featuring weighty 808 rhythms, dubbed out atmospherics and ever-evolving, sweeping synthesizers. The focal point of the track sees psychedelic, acidic undertones employed, alongside subtle filter work and gritty percussion, further fuelling the tripped-out, peak-time vibe. Boom Merchant reworks "Cosmos" into a more direct, electronic track. The British producer keeps the drum programming on a straight 4/4 tip, and opts for bubbling arp style bass, ethereal pad lines and subby tones to drive the melodic movement. This groove is maintained throughout the track's seven-minute duration, with subtle nuances and sporadic additional elements worked in, keeping things in a blossoming, progressive state.

    Last up to close the 12" is "Do It Again", seeing the duo take an organic approach with the percussive elements this time, while fluttering synth lines, vacillating bass and Detroit tinged melodics add a shimmering beauty to the record.

    Deepfunk & Acidulant’s "Cosmos" EP is out on Tribal Pulse 4th September 2013.
