Sistrum welcomes the second installment in the Genesis Tracks series. Building upon the high sonic standards set by Genesis Tracks Vol. 1 (SIS-022), Vol. 2 brings together four special cuts from Patrice Scott, Reggie Dokes, Eric Cloutier and Kai Alce. Deep enjoyment awaits.
Label head, Patrice Scott opens the EP right with ‘Seasons Change’ – setting the tone with a smooth excursion into lush chord stabs and deep, low end vibrations. Vintage strings ride high, while tinkling jazz keys dance amongst the waveforms, making for yet another future classic in the Sistrum lineage. On ‘The Baptism’ Reggie Dokes goes deep with reverberant rhythms and crisp synth work, crafting an interstellar afro journey of the highest order.
Keeping the quality at its highest, Eric Cloutier’s ‘Gossamer’ entry is a deep, techy mover – designed to lock the dancefloor into a hypnotic state. Drifting strings provide the foundation for highly modulated, gritty chord stabs to lead the way through the darkest of dancefloors. NDATL main man, Kai Alce rounds out the EP in fine form – stripping things back to the essentials. ‘Jelly’ is raw, bouncy goodness, simply put. The filtered down acid-esque bassline is nothing short of a call to movement for all believers in the authentic sounds of house music.
