E.B.E. - A 90’s inspired sci-fi house session: acid, house and electro inspired dance floor tools from Maheras w/ Keith Tenniswood (Two Lone Swordsmen w/Andrew Weatherall) as Radioactive Man on remix duties.
LA vinyl imprint Into The Woods continues a steady growth this summer as Jimmy Maheras (one half of LA’s Plastic Love) continues his solo exploration on E.B.E. This second release on Maheras’s imprint pushes into new sonic territory with a selection of Warp / LFO inspired sounds sitting between the producer’s hallmark percolating house rhythms.
“E.B.E.,” the title cut from the release, bumps synthetic drums underneath a mysterious bass line and Fox Mulder sample for a playful 90’s inspired outing while “Pusher,” the record’s A2 cut, is a moody DJ tool that combines playful melodies and chord stabs atop steady hand clap and breakbeat: a perfect transition tool for bridging house and electro.
On the flip, Keith Tenniswood’s Radioactive Man remix of “E.B.E.” brings a thumping breakbeat to the groove while maintaining many elements of the original track re-interpreted through rhythm. “Vision” closes out this EP in style with a mysterious electro groove and sampled vocal that drift into hyperreal space amidst effervescent pads.
