Slam - Echo Enclosure EP (Soma 549d)
1. Echo Enclosure
3. Acid Implication
4. The Pace
Slam back doing the damage with their new EP 'Echo Enclosure'
Soma label heads Slam return to their home base with yet another dance floor storming record, the Echo Enclosure EP. The Glasgow duo have been on prolific form of late with multiple EPs this year alone paired with an intense touring schedule giving them the opportunity to road test their music to the max. This latest release has a deeper tone than previous release but remains just as unyielding.
Title track Echo Enclosure proves that less is more as the duo open with a striped yet pounding and effective dance floor weapon. Scintillation leans more on the twisted rhythmic elements to provide the core. Whilst just as reserved as the opener, in it’s own way, the pair certainly begin to ramp up the intensity on this one. As the name might suggest, Acid Implication utilises the ever reliant squelch of the 303 giving real power and presence to the track. The Pace closes out the EP, once again displaying Slam’s masterful production control. A subtle yet devastatingly effective sequence charges through as weighty percussive elements keep the momentum menacing throughout.
