The founder of ACEW label, Emilio Urbano aka A Credible Eye Witness, links up once again with his partner Ghost Ride to sign a wonderful follow up to their “Stellar Tunes EP”.
Ace “Synthesis” kicks things off on A side with shrill metallic drums, epic arpeggios and modular swirls in a tense introduction. Following a similar melodic approach, 4/4 like “Magnetic Force” signs a dancefloor assault made of pounding beats and intricate distortions, with some robotic vocals laying in the background. Probably my favorite on the 12” as it sums up the talent of both producers to gather their ideas, influences and machine knowledge into one piece of funk. Top notch!
On the flipside, purring “Metis” delivers another mind blowing cut based upon heading synth flights and acidic lines, over solid Electro percussions. As a conclusion, slow yet groovy “Leda”, builds oldschoolish layers of reverb over a cold snare and some tribal rhythms. Crying 303 loops fused into eerie, yet elegant Detroit frequencies, and deep Electro-noir tones complete this great song.
Experimental roots and structural ingredients such as creativity or originality combined to a great skill to manipulate machines, are the main advantages of these two producers. From A to Z, brilliantissimo “Random Research” (A.C.E.W 008), provides a chiseled job of gnarled swirls, broken samples and jagging beats. Four essential tracks of pure energizing Electro madness made in Italy!
