Tale Of Us - Another Earth EP
At first glance, Tale Of Us and Minus might seem like odd pairing, but when you consider the Italian duo's often dark, dance floor-led approach you'll begin to see where the two overlap. "Another Earth" kicks things off on uncomplicated terms, aligning a classic, pulsating techno groove with Tale Of Us' signature piercing synths. On "Discochord" the pair come alive, setting swelling pads over zesty rhythms. As tinny synths cavort over the bouncy framework, you'll marvel at how they managed to make a brooding techno cut feel so funky. They carry that same percussive strut over to "Lost City," strapping kicks and rigid claps to an instantly infectious synth line. So perfectly do they capture a dark, groovy core, that in this instance their trademark emotive meanderings feel a touch superfluous.
