Having previously cropped up on our Street Tracks Imprint Vol. 3 EP in late 2019, Warung, the electronic music project of Aaron Hopkins & Dillon Ames, returns to ST with a full release. The ‘Reverence’ EP brings together three fantastic tracks of climatic and enchanted house music.
Hailing from the USA, the Warung duo have been bringing their melodic and progressive sound to labels like KBD, Dear Deer and Earthly Delights.
‘Reverence’ is drenched in an almost 80’s ‘new wave’ atmosphere, with big chugging beats and a propelling bassline, the ice cold vocal refrains and glacial synths all making for a compelling production. ‘Deceit’ similarly forges a sound that’s both current, and with a nod to the early synth pop classic of the day, as arpeggiated keys dance over a booming rhythm track, whilst ‘Salience’ bursts out of the blocks with a light breakbeat and wistful and choral pads, a menacing bassline and celestial keys for a superb finale.
