The twenty third release from Needwant is a stellar EP by rising star EJECA. The Horizon EP explores the realms of modern electronic music, blending and progressing through styles from deep house to 2-step and garage.
This year has seen Ejeca team up with fellow Irishmen Bicep to release one of the standout tracks of the summer, ‘You’ on Will Saul’s Aus Music as well as hot appearances on on labels such as Saints & Sonnets, Future Classic and Kolour.
The title track ‘Horizons’ is a perfect slice of modern house with some classic flavours. 90’s organ sounds alongside resonant synths, subby bouncing bass and a rhythmic female vocal give the track its nice mix of contemporary and classic. This one is destined for the summer dance floor.
On the B-side. ‘Dazed’ crosses into deeper territory. The track opens into a sporadic array of synths and clipped vocals while maintaining the swinging rhythm underneath. Down tempo grooves, a sharp kick and warm garage bassline make this a great, laid back summery track.
‘See Through You’ keeps it deep and rounds off the EP with warm, murky synths, a bouncing bass line and skipping, pacey percussion.
Somewhere between the deepness of Ethyl and bumping of Bashmore, EJECA’s diverse productions are proving a potent strain of the UK’s young breed of forwardthinking music. With this knock out ‘Horizons EP’ on Needwant, EJECA’s sound is set to resonate even more strongly.
