Chrysalis Records (feat. Trust)
The recent maxis by the Canadian Egyptrixx for Aaahh! Real Monsters and Night Slugs left us with a satisfying aftertaste. But, seriously, after listening to “Chrysalis Records”, we think we should reassess our expectations. For the better part, anyway. In “Chrysalis Records”, the pitch of the synthesisers tries to lose balance, making it sound exciting instead of flat and formulaic. Trust’s voice sounds distant and yet sensual, closer to the memory of post-disco arty New York than to the new rave scene promoted by the UK bass folks. All this with rhythms halfway between 2step and new funky house, though slower and more ornamented with synths that oscillate between the gloriously melodic and threats of dissonance.
