The four tracker features three Dragosh originals and a remix from Michael Lardy and Dudley Strangeways. The second release from the Romanian producer this year, it shows his flying form and commitment to continue doing what he loves.
The EP opens with ‘Josum’. With a stripped, crunching groove, a clipping synth bass soon joins in. Filled with small noises, ‘Josum’ invades your headspace and pushes your head down, your body up. A minimal, techy affair, it will not let you rest with its revolving bass and invasive, unsteady beat. The remix reels in the strangeness a bit while maintaining the minimal, never-standing-still feel to the original. Computer bleeps join the tunnelling groove, delivering a remix that it is more dance friendly but remains in the realm of heady weirdness.
Next up is ‘Perfect Timing’, the title track. Beginning with a cleaner cut beat than ‘Josum’, ‘Perfect Timing’ still maintains the feel of the EP with a rattling percussive beat before hitting you with a deep, thunderous bass. With haunting synths far in the background, the track keeps you guessing as to what is coming next. ‘Bad Idea’ closes out the EP in a decidedly more subdued fashion. Still in keeping with the deep, heady feel of the other track, it does so in a more low-key and laid back fashion. With a retro drum-machine led rhythm and a tractor beam for a bass, ‘Bad Idea’ is perfect for a darkened, end-of-the-night session.
