Blokc - Resemblances (Teho's Overdriver remix) by Teho published on 2013/10/03 14:17:25 +0000 Following his debut EP, Nostalgia, Blokc returns in full force with the Elements EP, released on Strange Town Recordings. Comprised of two original productions and two remixes, Blokc makes use of his own live cello recordings to explore the emotional dichotomy between analog and digital, acoustic and electronic. Washington tells a tale of power, controversy and perseverance. As the inquisitive introduction makes its way through time and space, a bass drum emerges from the abyss and begins establishing the inevitable driving force of shakers, filters, powerful bass and intermeddling melodic stabs that are soon to become reality. Blokc creates a unique narrative in which tension and release take the listener on an unforgettable voyage. Resemblances begins as a tech-infused dream, as an ominous pad sweeps over only to welcome a breath of fresh air in the form of a white noise burst before hi-hats and a variety of delayed stabs take over both the stereo and frequency spectrum. Over the course of the seven minute epic, cellos and synthesizers combine in flawless fashion before coitus interuptus breaks the flow, tension rising, before culminating in the point of no return as white noise brings the listener back to reality. The track ends the way it started, as a dream, resembling an intimate aural journey of the heart and soul. On remix duties Inlab Recordings head Teho takes Resemblences to the peak time dance moment with an overdrive of emotions. As BIconection reworks Washington into an uplifting collage of the original with an infectious melody that will keep you humming this tune for days!
