Nextup: Cleric – Seit 1990

Earlier this week Mancunian techno don Cleric released the second part of of his ‘Scattered Thoughts’ EP on the Figure label. All in all he’s dropped eight thoughtful and exploratory tracks over the past two weeks. From the first set of tracks, ‘Avoid the Subject’ is an absolute chugger with a baseline that wont quit and is trademark Cleric material.

From the second part of the release each track has its own unique flavour, ‘Shifted Reality’ is an airy, floating opener that builds intrigue for the rest of the EP and the experimental closing track ‘Disappointment’ is an intriguing and playful piece of electronica that shows off a different but very welcome side to Cleric’s production. Both ‘Plexus’ and ‘Seit 1990’ are more typical Cleric releases with ‘Plexus’ checking in as a hard hitting, bare bones screamer of track. The standout of the EP – both EPs for that matter – is ‘Seit 1990’. A wonderfully constructed minimalistic roller of a track with a menacing bassline that is just begging to be heard in some grotty underground warehouse situation and a track that will absolutely slay most dance-floors it comes across.

Release date: 09.03.2015
