Straight from Poland comes the undisputed talent Szymon Zawadka aka PL_anet. Under his brand new alias Urban 209, the author of a notable discography with two albums on labels Borg Recordings and Electropunkz, invests this month in Japanese prime Electro imprint Anti Gravity Device run by AE35.
Delivering his debut E.P. to date, the polish artist serves up on "Street Dialect" a copious digital pack with no less than seven cuts ranging from the Electro Bass to Electro Funk genres.
In overture, "Urban Pacification" kicks things off with a powerful beat, eerie sounds and delayed vocals, drawing a dreamy atmosphere that could easily evolve into a nightmare. Ace!
Submitting futuristic beats with an emphasis on dirty bass, "Onine" serves up a relentless track set to destroy any dancefloor thanks to a subtle use of 808 kicks.
"Razor Waves" is another milestone of a track to bring closer to the sound of ADJ. A well cadenced rhythm over a classy melody drives the listener into a secured funky zone where he will easily do the break.
Coming next is "Little True", a harsh yet groovy jam based upon metallic beats and catchy echoing sororities, half way between Electro and Downtempo genres.
If deep "Sands of Lardossa" turns into an Electronica affair, merging bleepy elements to acidic touches on a relaxing ambient song, "Yellow Diver" instantly following offers a typical Electro cut where uncanny 808, classy melodies and bubbling tonalities immerse the listener into a kind of spleen.
"Extended Hours" leads to a masterly conclusion thanks to positive vibes, funky synth arpeggios and a retro bassline.
With a serious Electronica approach, PL_anet escapes from the Electro style we are used to hearing from him, showcasing another palette of his unlimited talent. An eclectic and refreshing E.P.!
