Klaus Benedek – To The Moon EP

Label: Colour In Music
Catalog: CIM028
Release date: 2018-05-14

Klaus Benedek’s first EP on Colour In Music is here! ’To The Moon’ EP contains three original tracks and a remix from Ethan Poe, a Spaniard electronic musician who started creating his own electronic music in the mid/ late 90’s.

‘To The Moon’ starts off rather slowly but picks up and maintains the tempo. Klaus first track is infused with electronic hums and jazz tunes that would have heads bobbing in no time. Audible vocal snippets are also featured far and in between throughout the piece and this just provides a perfect mix to the funky stabs of this song that gives a soothing feel and can help bring calm to tense dance floors.

Ethan Poe decided to pick up the tempo in his remix of ‘To The Moon’. The low thudding kick and the fat synth basslines he added can have listeners swaying in no time. As such, this mix is dance floor-worthy. The jazzy drums added further helps to bring to the fore the depth Ethan added to the song.

On ’Trembling’, this fast-paced song that is devoid of vocals is one that has lots of drumming and tough pumping rhythm. Aside from the funky stabs added to it, the overlapping of soft and dense tones in between it just helps create a groovy coherence in this piece that is made complete with a bass feeling.

’Don’t Play With Me’ is the last track of the EP. This minimalistic piece is upbeat and has a nice infusion of drums and filtered vocal bits that help make it dance-worthy. With a rapid tempo and seemingly playful style, this piece is also infused with classic chords that would have heads bobbing from start to finish.
