The Conversation EP (Creme 12​-​85)

by Marcos Cabral



Next up on Creme Organization is accomplished American producer Marcos Cabral. He has been known to make everything from abrasive noise to disco edits via all sorts of house and techno on labels like L.I.E.S. and The Trilogy Tapes (as the noisy Chemotex). Once again the New Yorker impresses here with another original offering featuring four standout tracks.

Up first is the slow and slithering techno workout that is 'Nearly Run Over'. With frazzled synths and plenty of beeps, it’s a real brain fryer. 'Jumping Beans' is another all analogue work out with loopy sine waves, distorted percussion and nasty drums that all come at you through a wall of fuzzy, broken and whirring machines. It’s dystopian music for hellishly dark back rooms before 'Man’s Job' gets a little more colourful. This one sounds like a burnt down disco track with distant synth patterns and metallic drums all fighting for your attention in a lurching fashion, then 'The Conversation' is the most upbeat of them all but is still a whacked out, degraded and compressed house tune with undulating synths and frosty percussion. Few people do damaged sounding tracks as well as this man and this EP highlights that fact once again.
