Electrick Dragon – Space Connection EP - Cyberdance
Considered by those in the know to be one of the founding fathers of Dutch electronic music, Rick Van Breugel makes returns to his rare Electrick Dragon alias for a superlative debut on the Cyber Dance imprint with Space Connection. Hardly the most prolific of labels, Cyber Dance releases are invariably Italo Disco worthy of your attention and the three tracks here ensure this status quo remains! Tough and rough, >Night With You< finds room amidst the flexed drums and thick arpeggiated groove to drop some romantic Italo vibes for the lovers out there, whilst some sort of odd laser FX on the two adds that extra degree of individuality to the gleefully effervescent exercise in constantly building joy that is the title track. Final track >Soon As The Stars< is a production that could only have emerged from the Lowlands, the ever-present outer galactic synth work and subtle yet intricate tape saturated percussion complemented by key lines that spiral in and out of focus with hypnotic intent.
TO US A VERY IMPORTANT EP FOR THOSE WHO RESPECT THE ROOT.
