Title: Source EP
Cat. #: ECHOCORD072
Release date: 03-03-2017
Copenhagen’s Echocord returns early March with Idealist’s ‘Source’ EP, comprising three original compositions from the Swiss producer.
Zurich, Switzerland born producer and DJ Idealist has been steadily building a name for himself over the past five years with releases for labels like Pro-Tez, Lackrec and Berg Audio as well his own Idealistmusic, where he released his debut long player in 2016, and Detail Series sub-label. Here though we see Idealist joining the roster of Echocord slotting him in alongside the likes of XDB, Deadbeat, Fluxion and Mike Huckaby on the imprint.
‘Flow’ opens up the EP with ethereal dub chords, pulsating sub hits and crunchy percussion, laid out over eight minutes in a softly unfolding understated fashion before ‘Nucleus’ follows and employs robust rhythms, stuttering delay swells and snaking bass chops to create a more raw, dance floor feel.
‘Accumbens’ then closes the package with a fusion of deep and dubby atmospherics, an amalgamation of airy stabs ebb and flow throughout the record whilst thunderous sub drones and raw percussion further fuels the heady groove.
Idealist’s ‘Source’ EP is out on Echocord 3rd March 2017.
