Artist: Chris Cargo
Title: Eclipse
Release Date: 4 November 2022

The latest release from Tash's Movement Limited welcomes Chris Cargo to the label for his debut EP. The Irish artist was an integral part of the progressive house movement that happened in the late nineties. Perhaps best known for his productions on Mara's Choo Choo label, Chris also appeared on Renaissance and Automatic Records. Following a long absence Chris made a well received return to the scene in 2017 and has since compiled an impressive discography, highlighted by releases on John OO Fleming's JOOF Recordings, Juicebox Music, Mango Alley and his own If You Wait imprint. Now, adding Movement Limited to his resume, Chris debuts on the label with 'Eclipse'.

Although the majority of Chris' catalog has been tailored for a peak time dance floor, the 'Eclipse' collection shows a broader spectrum of his repertoire. Beginning with the title track, the Irish artist sets the tone for the release as broken beats, lively percussive arrangements and sweeping effects perfectly prelude a myriad of nostalgic synth swagger. Second selection 'Swerve' shares a similar sonic ethos, once again relying on a breakbeat anchor as the backbone for a storyboard of misty atmospheres and retro-arps. The release concludes with 'Illuminati' where Chris flexes his free-thinking muscles with evolving, emotional and hypnotizing structures, allowing the listener to relish in the groove, building anticipation towards an array of warm atmospheric phrasing.
