Reliably informed

The new EP, Dreamwave, by electronic artist Rees blurs genre expertly. Driving basslines on the title track are complimented by juicy percussion, and a teasingly light countermelody muscles in on the action. Electric Body is made for sticky floors and morning hours in Berlin, sharp twists over snares dissolve into a spacey synth line, lulling before bursting with steady electricity again.

The result is gorgeous full-bodied techno kissed by synth. On The New Beat, kick drums are licked by meditative flourishes before crumpling into rave shouts and acidic twists, while layered Eastern melodies glide over the distorted beat, like some kind of contemplative rave meditation.
