Also known as Dg!, a veteran DJ with many years of services, Eduard Jiménez has made a name for himself under the no-nonsense Sigma Algebra moniker thanks to brilliant Electro productions on some of Spain's most regarded labels such as Urban Connections, Amper Clap Productions or Elektrodos Recordings over the last five years.
While "Funaphy", his last creepy release published few weeks ago remains fresh in our minds, the producer from Castellón De La Plana celebrates his debut on Japanese imprint Anti Gravity Device with another milestone of a EP!
Delivering no less than six epic tracks ranging from Electro to more Electronica styles, must have "Corollary Two" opens with the noir atmosphere of "Intro Hebrew Alphabet"; a downtempo tune made of gloomy strings and harsh beats over intricate Sci-Fi sororities. The tone of the track is given as the first notes drop, so Eduard is not here to amuse the gallery.
"Alef" instantly following displays a similar atmosphere but the rhythm sounds more Electro Bass. Dark synth flights combined with warm drums will invite you in a nocturnal trip through a futuristic and inhabited metropolis. Here's a song to haunt your dreams!
Coming next is oppressing "Bet (Jaraguas Theme)", a powerful IDM-infused Electro jam that encompasses the genre with a taste of Techno layered in the background, whereas ambient melodies progressively take control of the track. Perfectly constructed and craftily produced, a great musical moment.
Successful "Guimel" following offers a bit of fresh air thanks to acidic loops, bleeps tones and funky beats. Melodic and beautiful "Dalet" on the other hand, slows down the rhythm for a lazy journey through the depths of electronic sounds.
Last but not the least, heady "He" concludes the EP on synthetic notes tinted with IDM and EBM influences from the early 90's.
Overall, "Corollary Two" departs from the darkness of Sigma Algebra's recent works and signs an eclectic outing where the Spanish artist demonstrates that his music can also be sensitive and emotional. Brilliant!
