Eastcolors – Toys
Label: ProgramScore: 8/10
With the surprise but welcome return of Andy C’s Nightlife, 2014 will undoubtedly see a glut of the unreleased material featured on it start to surface into the hands of consumers.
No stranger to the Program fold, Eastcolors kicks off the labels year with his stunning track Toys. Something that veers from his usual tech laden outings, Toys is dripping in warm bubbling subs and dreamy sonics. You’d probably even go as far to call it liquid, making its release on an imprint that sets it’s stall out on the darker fringes of the 170 spectrum even more impressive. The inclusion of those “No need to run, no need to hide…” vocals are the cherry on top of overall excellent slice of musical cake.
Not wanting to think he’s gone soft, Creeper pulls you back to the gully side. Two step grooves and punching bass stabs weave amongst the subtle atmospherics, but it’s an all out heavier affair and in turn shows the diversity in sound of Eastcolors. Highly recommended.
