London based DJ and producer Justin Berkovi is becoming a regular favourite on Lucidflow. Having been one of the lucky few to grace the vinyl series, Justin also had the honour of gracing the 100th Lucidflow release remix project. This latest release sees another landmark, the birth of his fresh and darker Sevington alias with the 'Dark Soul' EP.
Atmosphere and context is key, especially in the opening duo of 'Berlin' and 'Epilogue'. On the former, peer past the succinct clicky percussion and through the curtain of plucked string melodies, and you will find yourself in rapture to undulating waves of grey mist. This overcast texture varies from light to dark, creating colour from none, but always consistent in melancholy.
'Berlin' then hands over the baton to 'Epilogue', which continues the theme, if not more resolute. Its harmonic stabs and key changes offer progressive momentum, as if you are no longer gazing through a window but stepping through it and feeling the caress of precipitation on your face.
As one foot follows the other, euphoria seeps in with 'Relude'. Widescreen Detroit pads are pierced by a synth that suddenly flares in prominence. Driving to the core, your heartbeat increases. Finally, the mist peels back and you are left with clarity.
Closing track 'The Creator' features reflective phrases ("Who are you? I am the creator.") and a much cleaner experience, switching the velveting pads that form the motif of the release for rippling melodies and wistful leads.
