An Imbalance - The Digital Connection [Out Exclusively at Addictech June 5th] by Gravitas Music published on 2012/05/30 21:16:21 +0000 Fresh from the electronic hotbed of Colorado comes "The Center of Gravity" on Gravitas Recordings, the debut EP from bass heavy producer The Digital Connection. Blurring genre lines right out of the gate, this six track EP embraces considerable influence from dubstep and glitch hop while simultaneously ceasing to exclusively be either. Crisp and textured sound design contrasts the stirring melodic progressions throughout each track's diverse arrangement, keeping the listener fascinated and eagerly anticipating every twist and turn. Spawned from dreams of broken toy sounds, "Unusual Entities" starts the release off with a healthy dose of midtempo bounce. The funky title track shares a similarly upbeat rhythm, effortlessly blending relaxed chords into bubbling bass noises as the song progresses. Both "An Imbalance" and "On A Brighter Note" focus on rolling 808s and pitch-bent synth work, manifesting as injections of psychedelia into the 140bpm environment. "Unusual Entities" gets a heavy re-glitch from Gravitas' own Cryptex, taking a slightly more aggressive approach without losing structural integrity. Headtron's emissary Goldrush brings up the rear with a seductive take of "On a Brighter Note", focusing more on the lush intricacies of the original while keeping the bassline more restrained and tasteful. As a free gift, The Digital Connection has concocted an anthem-esque remix of Flight Facilities' nostalgic track, "Crave You". The rework expands on the original's innate feel good qualities while adapting it for a dancefloor setting.
