Obiter returns to Groovement Records with his ‘Fake People’ EP
Obiter returns to Groovement Records with his ‘Fake People’ EP.
After being featured by blanc and with releases on OVRDOSE and OKNF, we welcome our brother Obiter back on the Groovement label with unmissable two-track original EP and peak-time remix by label heads Phineo and Mad Brother.
Opening the first track with an almost sinister laugh, Obiter kicks off the year on a provocative note. Laid out over a steady, hypnotic groove, ‘Fake People’ is a cleverly delivered concept in a neat package of tight percussive elements, a chopped vocal line while sprinkled with anxious sounding instruments.
Featuring original vocals from Obiter himself, ‘Fake People’ sounds the alarm at the egoic side of our digital, social-media-crazed culture that exchanges euros for followers. On remix duties we have Groovement label heads Phineo & Mad Brother. The two drive this rework of ‘Fake People’ into a mysterious and underground mood, laying down some stabbing piano chords and pulsating synths over a brooding low end.
Rounding off the EP with his second original track our premiere, Obiter’s percussion soaked ‘Phoneline’ is a brisk-tempo heavy-hitter for all you movers and shakers out there. This snappy production is textured with quick hi-hats, sporadic vocals, and ear-catching dial-tones weaved in with finesse. A hectic phoneline and compressed vocal snippets build tension throughout the break leading into a massive kick-snare pattern.
These fresh tech-house grooves are guaranteed to electrify dancefloors, further cementing Groovement label as a firm must-watch in up and coming circles.
