Ellora label bosses Hush & Sleep join Joseph Capriati’s Redimension imprint with a melodically charged techno release entitled ‘Angeli E Demoni EP’.
Following on from previous releases on Etruria Beat, Virgo and Kraftek, the Maastricht-based duo Hush & Sleep kick start their year by showcasing their fiery fusion of dark, emotive energy with bounding techno rhythm. Since forming in 2014 the Netherlandic pair garnered early support from Adam Beyer, Amelie Lens and Charlotte de Witte while also playing alongside the likes of Claydrum, Slam, Nicole Moudaber in amongst their local scene and further afield.
'Abaddon' opens with tight kicks, panning strings, rapid hats and a luscious synth break until ‘Haborym’ pulses with moody bass, syncopated plucks, harrowing horns and industrial-sounding cymbals. On the flip, ‘Amorth’ continues the dark direction with cantering melodic lines, evolving pads and rattling percussion before ‘Elohim’ punches in with arpeggiated keys, subtle chords and a euphoric break to close the release.
