According to their social media profiles, newcomers Gheist aim to "connect the sound and vibe of an electronica band and the clarity of an energetic DJ set". That's certainly what's delivered on this debut two-tracker for Exploited. "First Day", for example, combines the rolling, melody-driven positivity of classic electronica - with some subtle indie-influenced guitars buried in the mix - with the swing, bump and energy of dancefloor-focused deep house. Virtual flipside "Viertanz" sees them move further towards tech-house territory, toning down the IDM influences and arty aesthetics in favour of a more straight up tech-house roller. As debuts go, it's certainly promising.
