Barcelona-based Ivan Fabra makes his bow on Codek with an EP that has already one support from Cinthie, DJ Harvey, Moscoman and Andrew Weatherall. Like the producer's previous releases for Night Noise and Emerald and Doreen, there's a strong Italo-disco influence on "Space Bass", with decidedly intergalactic '80s synth lines and blissfully starry electronics bubbling away above a rubbery bassline and unfussy machine drums. Eve's remix delivers an even more positive spin on Febra's original, while Yuki Tosaya's revision is an altogether more druggy proposition, an effect achieved via the use of suitably psychedelic acid lines and a pitched-down groove. To round things off, Fabre transports us to deep space via the cascading electronic motifs, sustained chords and arpeggio-driven grooves of "Rising Pulsar".
