Indigo – Wake EP (HYPELTD06)
A well-played shift in focus from bass music stalwart Indigo for his latest release for Hypercolour imprint Hypercolour Limited. Moving away from the deeper dubstep sounds Indigo is probably most noted for, Indigo shows his versatility on three strong techno-minded productions.
All killer, no filler on three tracks, none clocking in under the six minute mark. The EP opens with the releases eponymous Wake, utilizing the same sharp percussion that is a trademark of Indigo‘s garage influenced dubstep productions. Aradia plunges the listener deep, opting for stripped-down, minimally influenced style yet still maintaining a driving beat preventing any semblance of being mistaken for sleepily evolving dub tool. The EP closes with Kali, replete with the requisite filtered white-noise over a driving techno rhythm.
Always having been a fan of Indigo, and a growing fan of stripped down techno sounds as I grow older, I feel privileged to be able to give this a quality listen – and encourage you to do the same with the previews below. Be sure to pick up Wake EP on its release July 2.
