EAN - Darknet EP (CBR005) by Cosmic Bridge published on 2014/05/14 15:56:11 +0000 EAN - Darknet EP (CBR005) 01. Aulderkincher 02. Burnt 03. Flow 04. Darknet 05. Flow (Om Unit Remix) EAN steps up to bat for Cosmic Bridge, bringing 4 tracks of heavyweight, eyes down 80/160-range BPM rollers blending footwork rhythms with deep soundscapes and tinges of Jungle and Techno. His past work has come in the form of remixes for Om Unit's Searching on Stretched records, Ghostpoet's Cash and Carry Me Home and his contribution to Project Mooncircle's recent 10 year anniversary box set entitled Pictarus. More recently Civil Music enlisted him for a blistering re-rub of XLII's No Cure which has been very well received. Darknet E.P. features 4 original tracks, kicking off with Aulderkincher a tribal footwork-esque roller, which has already recieved much interest after being featured in Om Unit's XLR8R podcast in the last quarter of 2011. Next up, Jungle breaks collide with skittered 808s, hoover bass and vocal cuts from MC Random in the form of Burnt. The B side takes a deeper route as footwork tracks meet sci-fi with the opener Flow painting a more minimal picture, using reverb and spacial textures which continuously shift through the track, creating a feeling of anticipation throughout. A more dreamy melodic texture is brought out via the title track Darknet, which features vocals by Rachel Spell and Nicola Kearey. A digital extra comes in the form of Om Unit's syncopated halfstep re-rub of Flow to close. EAN can also be found behind the boards as mix engineer, and is responsible for the sonic success of Ghost Poet's Mercury-nominated Peanut Butter Blues And Melancholy Jam as well as the highly acclaimed psych rock album from Wolf People Steeple. He is also responsible for producing as part Various Production (circa 2005-2009) With full support for EAN coming from several key luminaries already, this is a hot-tipped debut E.P. release!
