Expect stylish, pared down D+B to be emitted from this Basic Elements EP on Fokuz. Kredit blends a range of sounds together to make something truly spectacular across the four-track selection. First up is the title track, with its spaced out atmospherics, thumping drum kicks and unsettled, wavering tone. Next, we ponder over "What Is Life?" which is another blissed out offering with swaggering, low slung beats and a sparse soundscape. "Between Heart & Distance" is full of pattering drums, bleeps and clicks and segues nicely into "Quiet Stars" which completes the EP.
Kredit joins the Soul Deep crew for this beauty of a liquid release and this German sure cam pick a melody. "Reflections of Time" starts out with a soaring intro, all hands in the air and sparkling chimes. His bass does all the talking when it kicks in though, dropping to reveal hidden depths far below the shimmering surface. On the other side, Future Engineers remix "Ascending Red", a tune caught part way between a stepper and a roller - part head nodder, part hip-shaker. A gorgeous filtered synth plays out the main riff as an understated bassline pads out the low end. A real treat.
Expect lush, lilting D&B of the gentlest kind here from Kredit on the Celsius label. The Through Your Eyes EP starts with the beautiful and touching "Kisses From Julia" with its trumpets, rolling breaks, humming bass and blissed out atmospherics. Next up is the title track, a more contemplative piece with delicate, tripping percussion and a melancholic swathe of synths sitting above the tune. "Above The Clouds" brings the EP to a close with a flurry of syncopated, bleepy beats in a sparse soundscape.
Expect uber-stripped back, atmospheric D&B from this next release on Fokuz. As Kredit steps up with the What If EP, he brings with it the most laidback lounge music imaginable with a gentle sonic palette and plenty of blessed-out atmospherics. The title track is all rattling breaks and chiming instrumentals with a lullaby undertone, while "A Glass Of Water", undoubtedly the most minimal of the four, is breathy and barely there. "Close To Me" is all swaying beats and delicate clinking SFX, whilst "Point Of View" is downtempo bliss.
