Manchester based Transcode has
made some waves in the scene with his quality output on labels like Stil vor
Talent. Filth on Acid is very happy to welcome this unique artist to the label,
with three great originals on his Afterlife EP. Next to that, Whyt Noyz from
Richie Hawtin’s Minus stable delivers an outstanding remix.
Afterlife starts off with a
dreamy, subtle atmosphere, and some fantastic programmed synths and arpeggios.
These elements are contrasted when the beat comes in; powerful and straightforward.
The little melodic percussive elements work in perfect harmony with the
melodies and keep on driving the track. The long breakdown in the middle of the
track is mind blowing and a real crowd pleaser. A level work by Transcode.
Whyt Noyz manages to squeeze
the synth lines of the original into a remarkably tight groove. Razor sharp
hi-hats and a solid kick and bass drive the track on through airy and trippy
effects. Slowly the arpeggio unfolds from the groove and leads us into the
breakdown, where feeling of the original track perfectly complements the
hypnotic vibe of Whyt Noyz grooves.
The third track of the EP,
Vesta, illustrates Transcode’s ability to write very strong and beautiful
melodies, with almost a relaxed feeling, without slowing the track as a whole
down to much. There’s still plenty of energy here, and as Vesta develops, the
energy level increases in a subtle way too.
Night Vision closes of the EP
in style, introducing acidy elements and colossal sound design that stimulates
the imagination of the listener. A heavy bass drum and a steady, punishing drum
section combined with an eerie, dangerous atmosphere create a tasty atmosphere.
