Adesse - Untitled Love EP
Having turned heads with a bootleg remix of Theo Parrish's "Sky Walking," Adesse returns to Prime Numbers with three varied originals. Blurring the divide between Berlin dub-techno and Chicago jack tracks, "Untitled Love" swirls ethereal whispers and crisp snares around a robust bassline; what it lacks in originality it makes up for in rhythmic thrust. "Supernal" drives bounding sub-weight through Kuedo-esque dystopia to atmospheric effect. With something of the Playhouse-era Villalobos about it, "Metachemistry" fits tribal percussion, filtered horns and warped reverb to a grid of rolling minimalism.
