Push Yourself [LF016]

by Klartraum



Klartraums Push Yourself EP is unashamedly rough around the edges. This raw, grimey edge sees a trio of basement anthems drop on the pairs own Lucidflow imprint. Full of precision engineering and minute details the EP reflects a never ending Berlin afterhours session. Lenny is a bouncy number that opens up a whole bag of tricks over its duration. First digging itself into a dark hole with a shuffling rhythm, a cheeky synth lifts the mood before crunchy bass is deployed to snap the floor into step. These elements casually drift together to create a teasing finale that will keep the floor guessing to the last. Dignity is a dirty, dark, brooding and spacious track for never ending underground adventures. Constantly building, the warm low ends gentle insistence pushes against the hips while skittering percussion gives momentum to its majestic pulse. The marching, mechanical feel of Push Yourself with its tight drum programming will get people out of their seats, unaware of what is to come. With the dancing set in motion, intoxicated vocal snippets swarm around the low end to create both a twitchy funk and tripped out effect. The constant pulse dominates the track before a dusty brass sample appears from nowhere to confirm that things are by now thoroughly unhinged. - - - Each track on the package takes hold of the senses in a different way, twisting them so that time becomes an afterthought. The EPs texture, where rough shards of percussion are woven smoothly into lush washes of melody works both mind and body. Unhurried yet absorbing, a casual intent in each cut slowly disengages reality and slips into another world of hedonism where anything is possible.
