The Microsleep EP
£0.90 – £4.30
Seattle based Quadrant sets the bar high with his first Dispatch EP, entitled “The Microsleep EP”, otherwise known as “MicrosleEP” for short.
Collaborating with different artists on each track, a distinctive Quadrant signature groove strikes the lower frequencies throughout the EP. With fellow collaborators Iris, Kid Hops, Cease, RoyGreen & Protone all bringing their own specialist touches to the mix, the EP resembles a mixing flask from a meddling scientist; collating individual resources and including all the intricate details and calculations to create a lethal strain at 170bpm and up!
Quadrant, Kid Hops & Iris lead the EP with title track, “Microsleep”, a dark insomniac that comfortably sweeps through a 4am dancefloor without hesitation. Their very first collaboration on Dispatch LTD “Convergence” receives the remix treatment too, as DLR & Ant TC1 join forces to “Re-Converge” on the original, masterfully tuning up the already malicious hub and re-igniting the drums into a new, more stepping, switched-up take on a superb original from Seattle's finest.
Exclusively aired on BBC Radio 1Xtra, the momentous moans of “Genesis Wave” follow soon after, rolling ruthlessly and re-fueling at every break, before a cascading helix of sub-low pressure carries ice cold “Warsaw” into battle. To complete the EP, “Right Now” written alongside talented Austrian duo Roygreen & Protone delivers that final, lethal blow, as arcane musical elements curiously harmonise, only to contrast spectacularly with a pulsating bassline drop that almost blows the lids clean off the speakers.
Each vinyl purchase will receive free 320kbps mp3 and wav files of the available digital tracks.
