OUT NOW: Fractal – Rocket Summer EP
Almost exactly a year after I wrote it, my debut EP of original music (on a label that isn’t my own) has been released. You can buy it on CD from the Primal Recordings website, or as a download from Beatport and fine online stores everywhere. Label promospeak follows – I will hopefully find time to write down my thoughts on the tracks, now that I’m separated from them by a year.
The Rocket Summer EP is undoubtedly the most experimental and leftfield Primal release to date, something deeper, quirkier and downright genius in our opinion.
Fightmagicitem starts off the EP, a complex layered work, offbeat drum patterns, filmscore style synths and spun-in effects…. all leading to the most glorious glitchy crescendo. Rocket Summer carries on these themes but adds tech house structures and basslines. Strictly Ballroom is the most leftfield of the tracks, seemingly random bleepy synths big basslines. Soft Places rounds off the EP with a haunting, outerspace-styled,downtempo offering.
