Lower East is back mid November with a four-track release from Moodtrap, entitled ‘Make It Better’ and accompanied by Gerd and Cozzy D remixes.
London based duo Moodtrap have remained anonymous under this guise since stepping onto the scene in 2011 via Tsuba Records, although the pair have a long standing relationshop with electronic music having been releasing material and touring the globe for many years. Here we see the pair add a new label to their affiliations, namely London’s Lower East which has just celebrated a milestone five years releasing material.
Title track ‘Make It Better’ kicks off the release here and see Moodtrap deliver their signature raw sound with dry crunchy drums, glitching bass stutters, mesmeric chord sequences and a snaking amalgamation of vocal lines throughout the records seven and a half minute duration. 4Lux’s Gerd steps up to rework ‘Make It Better’ next, adding an even rawer edge to things with lo-fi rhythms, penetrating rave stabs and intricately processed snippets from the original composition.
Lower East’s lead man Cozzy D steps in to reshape ‘Make It Better’ to follow, bringing a more direct house feel to things via looped vocal swells, a bumpy sub bass hook and swinging 909 drums. Moodtrap return with a second original next to close the package, in the shape of ‘Ethos Of Love’ which drops the tempo and fuses shuffled drums and vocal stabs with wandering arpeggios and hooky chord hits.
Moodtrap’s ‘Make It Better’ EP is out on Lower East 16th November (Vinyl) and 11th December (Digital) 2015.
