P.E.A.R.L. - Beyond The Past EP [w/ Oscar Mulero Remix]
(£8.78 Incl VAT)
Released 26th August 2016
We finally welcome one of our favourite producers in full format: P.E.A.R.L. Lately, the Berlin-based Spanish producer has been making big noise in the scene, playing in clubs all over the world, including Berghain. For this release he delivers three original tracks plus two Oscar Mulero remixes, one in the vinyl version and an extra one on digital. Vice of Kings is the starting cut: energized kick drum, modular sequences and subbass pressure. The main sequence flows and changes filter and dynamics throughout the whole arrangement, transmitting an overall metallic EBM feeling. Mirada Muerta is more droney and deep, with synthetic sweeps coming from left to right, arpeggiated bass that evolves and mutates, lots of reverb and an exquisite arrangement. Oscar Mulero picks up the pace in his remake of Castaway. Uplifting tempos, delayed kicks, liquid stabs and sharp cabasas. Some crazy distorted noise appears in the middle, likely to produce massive damage in any proper sound system. Beyond the Past is based on flanged lines and has a deeper percussive approach than the previous tracks. Subtle pads run along the sequence and FM bell tones complete the list of ingredients. As an extra dose of Oscar Mulero, the digital version includes an alternative remix of Mirada Muerta. Crazy step-sequenced lines, dry kicks, reverberated hats and some acid drops to close the equation. The digital version also boasts Castaway in its original shape. The most experimental track on the release: subbass action, filtered textures, industrial broken rhythms and a feeling of angst.
