Renessense (Creme 12​-​86)

by Art Crime



After standout EPs on Willie Burns' W.T. Records and Phonica's own label, the mysterious Art Crime is back with a new EP on Creme Organization. It is a four track affair that continues to showcase the producer’s knack for ravey, texturally rich house and techno sounds with a rather haunting edge.

'Anxiety is Always Here' is a high tempo stomper with spooky pads and jangling, energetic melodies that reverberate in a dark night sky. 'The Owner' is rooted on firm kicks and has dark, lo fi atmospheres percolating all around as paranoid stabs and gothic keys rain down from above. 'Renessense' is then a rather more stripped back and groovy, deeper cut with slithering and icy hi hat patterns and sombre bass notes. Still, it retains a trance inducing sense of freakiness before closer 'Intention' close out the EP in lithe, soulful and hi tek techno fashion. This is eerie, freaky late night dancing music that has a strong sense of identity and is only likely to turn yet more people on to the little known Art Crime.
