Moire – Never Sleep EP

Single Reviews

5021392793191.jpgLabel: Werkdiscs/Ninja Tune Score: 9/10   The original dark spirit of Chicago acid house glowers gloriously from the throbbing core of this hallucinogenic debut from London producer Moire, who perfectly realises his mission to convey the atmosphere of the city at night by harking back to the original warehouse groove. Lead track ‘Lose It’ was created with Lessons and singer Heidi Vogel, who sends out a disembodied siren hook over chugging acid riff which morphs from bleary to intense as the track steers into the early hours. Werkdiscs boss Actress ups the acid quotient, looping the vocal into a hypnotic flurry while the scuttling undergrowth sends out new radioactive warnings.The cryptically-titled ‘Drugs’ takes the claustrophobic basement out into the blinding dawn, atmosphere heightened by high-end scree-loop while the monolithic booming riff resonates around Godzilla’s shreddies until colliding with ghostly sonic obstacles [The download boasts extra track ‘Into’]. Hopefully, this startling new talent will be back again soon.
