Following on from the ‘Cramp’ EP courtesy of EdOne, John Digweed’s Bedrock imprint welcomes Titan International’s Philipp Straub and musical unit Outcome for the latest addition to their back-catalogue. Featuring a bonus remix from Kadosh, the ‘Lyra’ EP is out now across all streaming platforms.
Opening with the title track, Outcome and Straub employ crisp percussion from the outset, filling the space with a heady and hypnotic motive that sets the tone for this 4-track offering. Industrial hits and an eerie high-pitched synth invade the serenity wand are subsequently mirrored in the break’s bassline.
Outcome’s solo ‘Hayal’ plays next, with groove-inducing percussive rhythms, the duo introduces a vocal motif with middle eastern flair. The EPs final original cut ‘Modular’ is another collaborative effort that follows in the footsteps of its predecessors. Laying a foundation of percussion, they weave soft mechanical detailing and synth riffs into the cut.
Closing out the EP, Tel Aviv’s Kadosh offers his perspective on ‘Modular’, crafting an experimental re-work that celebrates the intricacies of its counterpart. All four chapters of the EP have been tried and tested on John Digweed's Transitions radio show and Bunker Sessions.
