This excellent EP from Adrian Rodd contains 5 extremely well crafted Original tracks and because we haven’t reviewed many EP’s since we launched here in January, we chose this as our alternative to our recommended album this week.
Standout moments on the EP are “Night in Gran Via, Taboo 3AM” oh and the last track on the EP, “Waves” which has a hopefulness to it that we wish more electronic music had, we loved the entire EP, there’s a real sense of passion, integrity and passion for sound displayed proving Adrian Rodd a production talent to watch…
Label Press Release:
In the phenomenon of the wave, nature, and technology combine with great effect. For Adrian Rodd both are important,he draws the bow from the synthetic sound wave to the natural surf wave. The producer and filmmaker from Lanzarote has created the visual aspect of his debut for Cochlea Music not only in the EP title Waves, the opener Equilibrium was created directly as film music. Surrounded by ambient and trippy synth sounds, the short film about the surfer Andy Criere shows a colourful journey from blue to red, a romantic poem “Man, Sea, Earth, Fire” – churned up and set in motion by urban basses and beats.
Unlike the main track, Night in Gran Via, he follows the DJ, still vibrating from the Techno-Floor, after working all night through the main city street. From there it goes to Verbena and Taboo 3AM on a jump to the Dubstep, Lo-Fi and Trap-Parties. Adrian Rodd’s music flirts not only with party goers, but also with people who arrive home late, drawing on his experience as a resident DJ in Madrid’s Stardust Club, as well as the sounds and everyday life in the surfing and fishing village directly by the sea.
Between warm waves, Waves mixes local history with a melodic evolution of ambient and urban dance music from BrianEno to Burial, ending the title track with a film which pays homage to the volcanic landscape of the canary island.
