After a short break from releasing, Philadelphia’s Worship Recordings moves forward with the next installment from the CIRCLE crew. Focusing on the groovy techno sound, the Circle gents have out- done themselves with the ‘Dark Waves EP’ that will be released corresponding to their debut EP for Matt Tolfrey’s Leftroom Recordings.
‘Rise of The LFO’ has been working the dance floors this year on dub plate to selective audiences. The track captures the floor with a heavy and moody bassline layered with a hypnotic synth that rises and opens-up as the track progresses. Even though this is a rather dark track, the house heads won’t be able to deny its impact when played in the right situation.
‘Machine Dub’ delivers on that timeless dubby sound that put Worship Recordings on the map back in 1998. The track samples a predication from Jim Morrison envisioning how music would be created in the future. Well it is safe to say he hit the nail on the head with that one – even giving Nostradamus a run for his money. Plenty of bass and eerie textures accompanied by a original 808 drum pattern get the heads into this one. Just ask Jay Haze or Someone Else how they have fused it into their sets.
And finally, “Move IT” brings back together so many elements of a sound CIRCLE is establishing for themselves. The track weaves eight minutes of techy – and at times funky – percussion together with layers of moody synths, bells and a haunting vocal sample from the past. Like the other tracks in this EP, this will no doubt appeal to both house and techno heads.
