Basilar Records second release comes from Diarmo, a three track ep mixing Techno/House, maybe some Bass.
First up ‘His Days Green’ a well structured contribution to the floor. At the starting pistol the rhythm section paces along rapidly, racing under sliced/pitched vocal shots, moving alongside delicate, catchy melodies that hover over layered pad sounds.
Next ‘Age of Wonders’ slightly poppy, waaa, bass style, than the other two. As a standalone track not poppy at all. Chanting vocal edits, constant cymbal hits, both fighting for presence. Simultaneously vocal and cymbal pick up the tracks pace and drop it back down again and again... quite catchy this one.
Final track ‘The bEnds’ lies on the minimal techno side more than the other two, with a solid structured bass and kick, sitting under advancing layered synths that hover alongside delicately structured melodies panning around your head, while crisp handclaps creep in pushing things along smoothly.
