"what is this? A beat? In my Seltsam EP?"
Greetings, dear readers. If you’ll remember, one of my earliest writings on Musicouch was a review of Dreiton’s classic ep, reviewing it song-for-song in the same style that I give another major netlabel. We’re here to do more of the same with Dreiton’s second release, the chill “Seltsam EP”. Less banging techno than the the first one, the Seltsam EP still has a nice, chill ambience to it. You can get your copy of that work here.
Droning again, crystal chimes, until, what is this? A beat? In my Seltsam EP? This song called “hard” delivers. A rollicking bass-and-hihat beat, with some sneering bass vibes attached. All this before a new, ringing sound, becoming clearer with each intonation: “Dun-dun. Dun-dun. Dun-dun.” Law & Order over here. This song’s an anchor to an otherwise dreamy ambient EP. This ringing sound intones with the chimes, with the regularity of the taxman. Even when the drums take their break (and they do, into different patterns), this clanging is a sonic clock, counting. A sound almost like mutalisks. Those who know will recognize, those who don’t, move along. A whole flock of them, glaiving this tune up. The clang-clock-sound attempts to defy the end of the MP3 file, going out “Dun-dun. Dun-dun.” to the very last second.
