Ken Hayakawa & T Raum – Spanish Fly EP (Stripped Down Records)
Incl. Gorge Remix
Opener ‘Spanish Fly’ is characterized by a stringed instrumental lead that is exotic and intoxicating. The beats below are deep and rubbery, and the whole thing makes for a unique cut that leaves a real mark. Then it’s the excellent ‘Spirit Base’, which is a spine-tingling vocal affair with smooth, bouncy drums and airy vocal whispers that cast a majestic spell. The remix comes from Gorge, a long time tech titan from Germany who established the renowned Mannheim sound and co-runs the 8bit Records label. His version is built on silky hi hats and underlapping drums that sweep you up and keep you in the smooth grooves for the duration. Last of all is ‘Follow Me’, a perfectly atmospheric and cinematic track that feels like a deep space exploration, with cosmic winds, journeying drums and deft alien lifeforms in the synths.
