Dotted with acoustic pleasures, Catartsis’ work eschews straightforward sound creation in favour of unique composition and kinetic acoustic-electronic hybrids. Despite clear aversion to simplistic or overused sound construction, Catartsis wraps new constructs into a pattern and overall texture that remains resulting in a pack of very danceable tracks that slot into modern approaches of techno.
‘Les mers intimes‘ is a prime example of how accessible the EP is to moving feet, despite the efforts to make this a unique and forward-thinking track. Dense rhythms blur into cohesion and clarity, as a thrumming bassline keeps the energy high into the red throughout.
‘Sombre, l’égoïque’ is scheduled for release 13 October via ygam. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
