The Italian pairing of Emanuele Mariani and Ermanno Vita are next to grace the Lucidflow catalogue with their 'The Loft' EP. Hitting archetypal Lucidflow motifs of dub and micro programming, understated is main feeling that comes to mind when listening to this five tracker.
For example, the percussion of the title track is controlled with a tight leash; intricate but never busy. Use of melodic elements is sparing, creating a cavernous arena for pads to swell and FX to reverberate.
Each successive track feels like forging deeper through the cave as lightness is gradually extinguished. 'Feelings Collected' hushes its kicks into a gentle pat, allowing sprightly percussion to take the lead as almost imperceptibly oscillating dub chords act as the glue.
'Fills In The Gap' features reversing elements that whip around a scattering of frozen chords, while 'Freeze' reduces further, the dub element sits in the distance as an elongated texture with only the odd snarl and lick rising to the foreground.
Offering a relatively lighter experience to the dark, Oscar Cornell takes 'Feelings Collected' and subtly lifts its pulse. The beats and bass sway around each other as the melodic elements bounce off the walls.
