KINDRED SPIRITS – SQUARE 1 EP (GREEN MARTIAN)
November 20th, 2013
Kindred Spirits are production duo Jakhira aka and Cosmic Tracer, the guys are back on GM after their first release “Smooth Tricks EP” gained much support. This time we are treated to another two tracker entitled “Square 1 EP”.
This duo really know their stuff, the title track intros with some fantastic hypnotic tribal rhythms which build into a sublime slice of euphoric progressive house. The melodies combine beautifully and the subtle basses add a lush texture. On the break warm pads fade through while melodies creep back into play. The percussion and drum arrangements are top notch and make this track stand out well, superb stuff!
“The Circuit” gives off a retro vibe as the kicks and percussions will attest. The track focuses on the drums as they lock you in the groove, then on the break stunning melodic pads make a show alongside a wonderful droning synth and stark contrasts are drawn. A real sense of oldskool hardcore can be felt within the sound yet the vibe stays true to modern progressive house, great stuff.
