Chris Page – Drivetrain (EP)

Londons Chris Page makes his third appearance on Affin, delivering a solid 3 tracks. This time showcasing a deeper more melodic side, while still maintaining a dark, raw quality that runs through all his productions. Derailleur opens the EP, chopping between a standard 4/4, sometimes dipping into a broken beat. Deep chords wash over a strange metallic bed of noise, punctuated by rough, off beat percussion. Cassette expands on what Derailleur started. Dimming the lights while still providing a light with punctuating stabs of melody, over driven claps and eerie noises. Shifter ups the pace with a driving, raw feel. Its rough bass filling the track under charging percussion and crisp hats. Berlin based, Birmingham raised, Rebekah, provides a solid, heads down take on Derailleur. Opting to expand on its rhythms and turn in a dark, pacey, driving take on the original. Solid techno.
