Enter 42 returns to Elemental with the superb Borde. He debuted here around the middle of 2014 with a stunning album entitled Distorted Times which grabbed the attention of many chill fans. He plied his trade in the Trip Hop scene for a while with much success before branching out into other areas. A very diverse artist with a great talent to offer, we’re delighted to see him back.
The title track, Borde, intros with a sweet melodic piano that cascades beautifully to the backdrop of subtle percussions. A nice chunky kick is introduced in a laidback break style that brings a smooth downtempo groove. Spacey synths are scattered throughout as a superb, lush bass holds the track together. Perfect fodder for those lazy nights, a must have.
Fade In evokes a real sense of melancholy a dark chords form up against a misty background noise that really grabs your attention. A pulsing bass probes throughout the groove as a tight drum arrangement gets the toes tapping and heads nodding. A beautifully contrasting melodic sequence runs through the sound and takes the edge of the melancholic nature of the sound. Top notch chilled out grooves.
Tired intros with a nice melodic sequence which showcases some deft skills with FX and envelope automation. Deep, throbbing basses are joined by a laidback breaks groove that sets the mood for a relaxing time against the heat of an open fire on a cold winters night.
