Superdrums – Save Me EP


SUPERDRUMS.jpgLabel: Electronical ReedsScore: 8/10

Brussels label Electronical Reeds has busy forcing an impression on our musical tastebuds recently; a fact that’s very much indebted to their knack for intriguing, dancefloor driven cuts and their dual propensity for quality-strewn, melancholic grooves. They enlist the services of the returning Superdrums here, with his ”Save Me” EP proving another coup in a story that’s looks increasingly auspicious.

Indeed, the whole things wastes no time in getting down to business thanks to the magnificent and majestic original, a track that calls on myriad genres and wraps them up under one heady amalgamation of sounds. House music fans of multiple persuasion are sure to be appeased with this one then, with electro, and even, trance sounds facing off under a heady stream of goodness. When the unanticipated vocals eventually carve open an opening, it’s sure to result in many a moment of pure, unadulterated bliss.

Max Duke’s tweaking of the latter pays homage with some assurance, albeit in a manner that’s hardly in keeping with the original’s charms. Instead, Duke turns the whole thing on its head, as he jettisons the energy laced bassline in favour for more gentle and melodic hues. The EP’s curtain is then drawn thanks to ”Salted Stress”, a track which glides and strikes with the sort of sure fire ambiance we’ve encountered in previous ER releases. And as you might have figured by now, there’s nothing wrong with that approach. 

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.
