High Tension EP

Reformed Society // Made Of Concrete
Format // 12"
British producer Reformed Society is on a steadfast mission to dig deeper
by going against the grain, standing up to the status quo and daring to do
something different. A self proclaimed goal that is easily noticeable in his
first release for “made of CONCRETE”, wherein he reveals three original
tracks and a remix by Gathaspar, one of the label’s regulars.
Kicking things off with “High Tension”, a high strung stripped back piece
with an aerial feel, the artist builds up the entire mood of the EP from
scratch. A clear-cut, steady groove whose versatility makes it relevant as
an intro, outro or interlude.
Gathaspar’s Rausch Remix is a sub-bassy reinterpretation of the initial
piece, filled with contorted whirs and whizzes that give the track a sub-
aquatic feel.
On “Volgende Halte”, the opening vocal sample shifts from a seemingly
conventional soundbite to a recurringly haunting snippet that remains
etched into the listener’s brain. Rhythmical rolling pads galvanize the
groove, making for an eerie yet relaxed overall vibe.
Movement inducing from the get go, final offering “Orbiting Jupiter” centers
around wavering bass leads, while playing on a blend of spacious synths
and timbered percussion patterns.
