The latest release on Tash's Movement Recordings welcomes Simos Tagias back to the label for a brand new EP. The Greek artist has been a core part of the Greek imprint in recent years and also owns releases on Hernan Cattaneo's Sudbeat Music and Cid Inc's Replug Records. Now making his return to Movement Recordings Simos presents his much anticipated three track EP entitled 'Tefra'.
Much loved for his groovy progressive minded productions the Simos sound continues to dominate the Beatport charts. The lead track here 'Tefra' certainly looks set for a similar fate with its astral designs and techno inspired construction. Rippling waves of bass anchor the piece as cosmic effects and electric rhythms roll through the framework. As tension rises gated vocals initiate the main break before syncopating into a kaleidoscopic swirl for a monumental conclusion.
The EP's second selection 'Follow Me' continues with trippy design profiles and infectious grooves. Undeniably hypnotic, it flows through a storyboard of phasing vocals, granular sonics and a myriad of spacey sweeps. Dark and sinister in all the right ways, an intense first act leads to a break with anticipation and tension at a premium. Hazy chords bring a moment of brightness before a charged roll launches a percussive driven finale.
The release concludes with 'Run From The Shadow' which finds Simos crafting another hypnotic roller which complements the previous two pieces wonderfully. Mesmerizing vocal loops, rugged beats and metallic motifs shine as the first act builds momentum. With the mystical atmospheres at their peak a short break ensues, complete with broken beats and a calculated build, putting a firm stamp on this outstanding collection. Three of Simos' finest creations to date and a stunning release for Movement Recordings. Don't miss it.
f music from Movement Recordings. Highly Recommended.
