Here's the latest from Melbourne-based New Zealander's Vanessa Worm and Eden Burns’ Head Rush ENT record label, a snappy six-song EP from producer-DJ D. Tyrone. On "Dallas Electrical", D. Tyrone, who you might be familiar with from collaborations with Hugo Jay as DJ Kush Boogie for Lobster Theremin, shows off a strong sense of dance music history. Equally sturdy, is D.Tyrone's command of mood and tone.
On the title track, D.Tyrone re-imagines twitchy, glitchy synth-ambient as as a solar-windswept spiral of celestial beauty, before docking with a more conventional rhythmic pulse for the lush, chrome-plated machine funk of "Piano Track", a smooth example of club music as space age futurism. "Darkstar" dials up the rhythmic intensity, adding a shuffling lurch to D.Tyrone's squelchy digi-melodics, and the brilliantly titled "Grooveshark" navigates a percussive, garage-style shuffle, complete with clipped vocal snippets and sprawling synth pads to match. After that D.Tyrone uses "Fresh Start" to segue into some snappy breakbeat science - a little bit acid house, a little bit Baltimore club, before slowly vanishing into a black hole with a spiraling piece titled "Forgive Me (Montclaire's Endless Mix)".
All in all, an epic adventure in six parts.
