Spanning over decades, Metamorphic Recordings has become a staple name amongst the realms of discerning house and low-end leaned techno, and the 39th release is a sure sign the label are showing no signs of slowing down the pace. Dublin based ZOiD is the artist of choice here, the electronic and jazz musician showcasing his genre straining sound with two slick and innovative cuts, writing the narrative for the ‘Dexaphonic EP’. The originals are in fine company as pioneer of the game John Tejada turns out a remix on the A side, with label founder Dan Curtin joining in the festivities on the B side.

Sparkling in the hazy early hours with a pure and emotional charm is ‘Space Station Dexaphonic’. The transcending and otherworldly synths all converse in harmony around precise and intricately placed drum patterns. Hi-tek jazz for the tastemakers amongst us. Complementing the opening track is John Tejada’s remix, feel good energy once more, with a vintage Tejada twist. Structured around an elasticated rolling bass and teased by an enticing vocal sample.

Steering in a more raw and industrial direction on the B side is ZOiD’s ‘9713Poochy’, a five-minute trip with rugged foundations at the core. Moving in quirky and mechanical motions from the get go, driven by an enormous kick at the wheel. Dan Curtin breathes an alternative lease of life into the original with his unconventional sound. The crisp broken drums create an irresistible groove, allowing the ethereal textures to work their magic.

Timeless music once more from the Metamorphic imprint, carefully curated by Berlin based Dan Curtin, inviting artists of old and new, allowing them to have total freedom with their sound and run wild.
