Zefzeed returns to Arria’s 3rd release with a 3-tracks EP entitled ‘Ships’. The complete departure is made out of straight-up 4/4 grooves for which Zefzeed is known, each studio work having its own specific energy signature.
A1 spins Face in your face – a thumping, minimal – tech-y track with a bold bassline and a peanut-buttery fatness to its sounds.
The 12 inches continues with Ships, illustrating a seamless dark functionality that could definitely cast a spell over the right dance floor. The kick drums hit in intuitive places, while the distorted vocal brimms bypass the body & mind entirely.
On the flipside, Wun Two makes you come to it— once you lock in, it all comes together. The synth notes are pitch-bent mirages of sound, and some well-placed wub-wubs are creating a viscous groove that keeps you glued. By far the most intriguing piece of the release.
