Guy Gerber's Supplement Facts imprint signals the end of 2012 with a Various Artist sampler entitled 'Things Have Changed EP'. Featuring a few household names alongside some future stars; Alexkid, Borrowed Identity & Mechanical Soul Brother, Gab Rhome and Andrew Grant & Lomez, all appear on this release filled with quality and diversity.
After critically acclaimed works on Rekids, Freerange & Desolat, Alexkid opens things up with a monstrous kick drum on 'Euclidean'. Layers of lush arpeggiated synths unfold around shuffling percussion culminating in a hypnotic climax that peaks with the release of a throbbing bassline.
Borrowed Identity & Mechanical Soul Brother get the party started on 'With You'' serving up a hazy sub bassline and skipping highs giving this one plenty of old school flavour. Spacey pads swirl and cascade in and around the mix paving the way for a breakdown of epic proportions to provide serious hands in the air moment.
On the flip Gab Rhome kicks things off with a samba inspired bassline before a cleverly arranged call and response snare and clave pattern are introduced to create the groove. Expert melodic layering is complimented by several carefully selected vocal snippets showcasing this producer’s strong understanding of sonic textures.
Fresh off the back of a massive release on EDEC Music Outlet, Circoloco resident Andrew Grant & Lomez are left with closing duties and they do not disappoint. A big kick drum coupled with a funky offbeat bassline set the tone whilst airy pads pulsate in and out of the mix. Shimmering samples and brassy synth riffs build the tension until a groove laden high end is finally released much to the listeners delight.
