For the latest chapter in the Electronical Reeds story, the label presents a new EP by the label’s regular O-Live. Debuting on the label last year courtesy of “Past Future” EP followed up by “In My Head” (which appeared on the label’s Y3ARS release), his latest inclination is “The Cornerstone”, a hefty slice of Kompakt-esque house that stands out from the pack thanks to its waif-like melodies and its refined grooves.
The original offers an early case in point. Imbued with sensuous sounds and a fair dollop of suspense, it keeps the listener’s attention thanks to a maelstrom of delightful sounds, all of which play out with elegance. On the remix front is one of KaterMukke’s most familiar artists, Sascha Cawa. The Berlin-based artist beefs it up as he tends to do thanks to a sprinkling of his own production magic. Definitly an apt sound with which to close out the summer with.
Last but not least is another original, “The Girl”, a track that offers further indication of the producer’s penchant for spiky, glistening synths. A fitting finale to sign off with that is indicative of a producer – and a label – that’s very much at the top of their respective games.
