Tom Demac returns to Hypercolour with something a little different to the label's recent fare. There's no garage or bass music influence to speak of, just a woozy chunk of melancholic, darkroom deepness. There is a big pulsating mid-range bassline, but it's largely hidden behind a twinkling wall of oddball synths, distorted vocals and heart-aching electronics. Berlin producer Hrdvision provides the obligatory remix, and it's his version that really makes the EP. It builds impressively on shuffling snares and cymbals, flitting between teary-eyed deepness and rumbling, bass-heavy murkiness. By the time the bold sub-bass kicks in, you'll be lost in the groove.
On this four-tracker, London producer Tom Demac joins forces with the lesser-known Silverclub for more forays into house/nu-disco/pop fusion. Opener "Holiday's Over" sets the tone, delivering a liquid combination of indie dance vocals, sprightly electronic beats, chunky live bass and some subtle boogie touches. "Throat Trip" wanders more into Holy Ghost territory, sounding like a more nu-disco take on the DFA disco-pop sound. Occasional Buzzin' Fly types Flowers & Sea Creatures remix "Holiday's Over", fixing a squidgy nu-disco bassline to a typically atmospheric deep house groove. The package closes with a sparse but bouncy take on "Throat Trip" by Tiger Stripes.
