Dmitry Distant - Closer Than Tears E.P.

The ninth release of the "Bass Agenda Presents" series highlighted last month a growing artist hailing from Russia. Author of a handful yet promising discography on labels such like Killerrec or Belätren, Dmitry Distant aka Distant Visions offered a wonderful and dramatic electro EP on the UK imprint.

 

In overture of the digital pack, raw "Forme De La Nuit" introduces a dark tune based upon a driving electro rhythm empowered by filtered distortions, some New Beat influences laying in the background. Top notch!

 

Fascinating "A Step Behind" offers another facet of the producer, reflecting his personal tastes and deep influences: a gloomy atmosphere surrounds the listener while tense electrogothic loops with rich and intricate synths make their way through elaborated drums.

 

Finally, coming straight from a horrific movie, eerie "Luxure" spreads its aesthetic and infectious melodies thanks to clear synth lines, reminding on some of DeFeKT's works. Ace!

 

The EP comes completed with a complex, trippy and lethal remix of ‘Luxure’ from none other than French electro talent Commuter who signed the sixth chapter of the "Bass Agenda Presents" series. Quality sinister Electro magnified by a nasty groove.
