TÂCHES – Notes On Grains EP
Pronounced “TASH”, the mysterious European producers dark yet danceable sound has gradually found its way into the ears of many of the past few years. This week he released a deliciously deep EP via Desert Heart recordings entitled NOTES ON GAINS.
The two song EP features tracks “slalom” and “Intentions”, both evoking TÂCHES trademark dark dancefloor sound. The first track SLALOM is a more upbeat track. The solid baseline is paired with a fluttering sax sample for the first half of the song, then it takes a dramatic twist building up into a bubbly, almost interstellar sound. There’s minute long stretch in the middle that really does sound like a UFO taking off into space, which I like.
INTENTIONS takes a more serious tone compared to the previous track. Although still as fun as SLALOM, INTENTIONS takes a more mellow, subdued sound. It is a straightforward deep house song with extra dose of whispery sounds that are pleasing to the ear.
All in all NOTES ON GAINS is a great release, and did I mention it is free?
