about

The revered Halal Prepared series on boe extends to its fourth volume with four new acts fresh to the label. Hotly tipped duo, Invisible Menders, made up of outstanding DJ Jane Fitz and thus far underrated producer Dom Ahtuam contribute a stunning Balearic bass-heavy house cut “Fifth Time Lucky”. Fresh from his solo EP, John Shima slots in a deep techno workout “Thought Wave”. Toby Tobias of Rekids fame pumps out some raw basement lofi vibes with his jacker “Sword Art Arcade” and rounding off the EP on a delicate note is Tim Smith’s soft and melodic 707 jam “Graphene”.

“Fifth Time Lucky” cuts a rare character amongst the majority of house music commonly heard today. Despite the absence of a prominent kick, the track still thumps with vengeance; thunderous toms and a system popping sub bass provide the energy. Thoughtfully arranged, the melodic sequences come and go and build over time like a majestic short novel. Plucked leads face off the natural elements against the electronic synth chords and arpeggiators. It’s a track with a story and one that grabs your attention.

The techno discoid sequences of “Thought Wave” carry the Steel City bass, bleeps and beats that John Shima is known for. Classic Detroit metallic overtones and feather-light modular synth lines blanket the rich and full low frequencies. Head music.

Dusty and crackly, Toby Tobias’s “Sword Art Arcade” has a sound conceived from the culmination of dark basements, sweat and 24 our synthetic trips. The shamanic psychedelic lead drags you in like a tractor beam as the crunch of 808 rhythms and analog bass tears down your synapses. RAW.

The gently stuttered classic Roland beats of “Graphene” are draped in soft furnishings of Rhodes chords and a liquid bassline. The melodic sequences are loose, deftly played live juxtaposed by the machine driven percussion. Less is definitely more.
