Label: Colour In Music
Release date: 2020-09-14
The Atlantic EP by Ethan Poe marks the second release for Colour in Music in this strange year of 2020. The title track “Atlantic“ is a slowly bouncing house groover with a reverb drenched synth melody, a super low dub-bass and heavily warped vocal chops. Italian producer Ercos Blanka gives “Atlantic“ the remix treatment, adding ethereal pads and a chirping arp-line, stretched out to an epic 9 minutes of dub house. The Chris Wayfarer remix opts for a subtly broken beat, adding dub stabs, gentle rhode melodies and a deep bassline, while maintaining the original chords and vocals.
“Excessive curiosity”, the second original by Ethan Poe, is a slow house cut with shuffling hihats, big dreamy pads and a prominent synth bassline that ties the track together. The closing track “Arrastre” is arguably the most funky and upbeat piece on the release, with an array of quirky synth hits and a fat juno-esque bass that nicely compliment the overall dub house feel.
