Acumen – Patience


1543c5377aeba3e365a5bc955d9eabbc_f7077Label: Time Has ChangedScore: 8/10

French producer Acumen is no new talent. This guy has been making headwaves on the dance circuit for a number of years now. Now back releasing on his well-respected Time Has Changed label, this release ‘Patience’ is a big tech-house affair with plenty of punch.

First track to kick us off is the title track and it takes us on our journey at a rapid pace with an infectious bass line and a jazzy melody. It’s a true after-hours gem, this will get you and up and dancing when reserves are running low. Second track ‘Aller Retour Paris’ is a remixed track by the always-impressive Sven Tasnadi.  The German rarely lets you down and this treat has a simple but effective beat but with a real groove and rhythm that works effectively along that hard-hitting beat.

Final track on the EP is another original mix by Acumen called ‘Equiibre’. It’s a deep and suspense filled intro with heavy drawn out vocals before the tempo is raised and we are launched into an intergalactic assault on the eardrums. A trippy but well produced track. In total, it’s a classic Acumen release and shows he has no intention of letting his usual high standards slip anytime soon.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
