Icicle & Proxima - Deep Dreaming EP
Released 15th June 2018
After a ten year long career releasing music with many different labels Icicle has taken the logical next step and started his own imprint, entitled Entropy Music. The name derived from his second album ‘Entropy’ still aims to inspire the concept that music behaves as all things do in nature and degrades, falls apart and becomes more chaotic with time. In an effort to confront this, Entropy Music strives to bring controlled, rolling, technically detailed music, without ever overstepping that line when the process becomes inhuman and cold.
On this second release on Entropy Music Icicle teams up with kindred spirit and cousin Proxima to deliver a four track collaborative EP. The opening track which also welcomes Ben Verse to the label, is rolling tech funk pur sang. The weighty and detailed yet simple breathing groove make it a track true to the Entropy ethos and Ben complements this with his trademark Lyrics reminiscent of renegade hardware shows past. On the A2. Icicle brings a near wooden stepper with a viscous turbulent low-end, a firm wink to the past, with Dust Me Off. Icicle’s track is expertly offset by Proxima’s solo offering Retrace a peak into futurism boasting an evolved playful groove which takes on board equal measures of jump up and 90’s tech. The EP is rounded up by the title track Deep Dreaming, where Icicle and Proxima collaborate once more to bring a slight curve-ball. Pianos ring in an eerie musical intro to a dark but sultry track where the energy is second to the atmosphere.
