On the a-side is Opus 34. The track begins smoothly with some nice rattling drums and some humming atmospheric sounds in the background. It builds nicely with hats soon becoming factor and then shortly after the main melodic tone starts to filter through providing the production with a great flow. The track breakdown midway, with beats more scattered, and then, some absolutely beautifully constructed string patterns. It doesn’t last long enough however, as the beats soon start to build their way again as the track starts to build to peak time with the melodic tones, deep subtle baseline and drums all working overtime. A fantastic production.
On the flip is the very massive Mass Schizophrenia. The track is deceptively slow and smooth at the onset, as the track builds with changes in the drum pattern and a smooth swirling melody. It continues to grow with the hats gaining in intensity as well as the harmonious sounds. The production breaks down, introducing a smooth baseline that intertwines with the swirling melody. As the breakdown seems to build to introduce the beats again, the production takes another twist. This time a vocal effect echoes in time with a drum roll that makes way for a devastating arpeggiated baseline. Pure brilliance. The track is now in overdrive with the baseline holding it all together. This is meant for a sound system with power.
Firstly on disc two is The March. It begins with some tribal drums and a simply melody. The deep rumbling baseline soon gives the production energy and drive as it builds in quick time. Another melodic riff soon enters as some big driving synths also ride in the background of the production. The drums have a quirky feel about them too which really compliments the atmospheric nature of this track. The strings really make this track as it progresses, while the tingling melodic line gives it a great edge as well. Another great production.
On the flip is Seyo In Blue. It begins with a thunderous kick drum and a looped short stabbing synth. Some vocal effects soon make their presence as the drums also gain significance and start intensifying at a quick rate. This track is another great example of the talent Yunus has at building a production with layers upon layers, as he soon brings another cute trickle of melodic sounds, and then some more dazzling string patterns. The strings exit the track and let the production drive with some big drums, but only for a short period as the strings come back in accompanied with a changing note baseline pattern. This is pure melodic progressive at its best. It’s another great production by the Turkish delights of Yunus.
It is not often that in an artist EP that you can honestly say that all tracks are superb. This is one such rare instance. All 4 productions hit the spot at one point in the arrangements, and as such, I demand that you give this EP a listen at the very least. It reminds me of the days where Progressive was uplifting and at its very best. It's not very often that i give a vinyl release 10, but this one deserves nothing but.
