ALEX D££MNDS drops a three tracker on Switched On. “Credentials” starts this one off with a syncopated, sort of trancey (but in a good way) synth pattern over a solid rhythmic backdrop. Nice contrast of shuffley snare drums over a solid 4×4 bass with some King of New York Samples interspersed throughout. My personal favorite on this ep. This one went straight into my “Bangers” Serato “crate”.
“Pressure” (Deemnds Olympus mix) picks up with a more neural approach, starting with a wash of synth voices which leads into vamping synths over a minimalist 4×4 beat grounded by powerful subs. This one needs to be heard on a system with subs to truly be appreciated.
Track three, “Baidin’” is the mellowest with sparse organ stabs over a beautiful brushed snare shuffle. Some chilled out space-jazz style house music here!
