Fresh after taking care of our October broadcast on Netil Radio, Baroque Sunburst flash onto the scene with their third 12-inch” ‘Intermedia 1‘, a vibrant and enigmatic three-tracker from Berlin-based producer Flørist.
Flørist has spread his wings wide over the world of electronic music, with records on esteemed labels (such as The Trilogy Tapes and Pacific Rhythm) showing a diverse and clear-eyed vision of dance music. His next outing for the London-based Baroque Sunburst shows no deviance from this path — in fact, enhanced clarity of vision are the order of the day.
Although the two warm and adventurous wonders on the B-side are by no means something to turn your nose at, ‘Headrush‘ demands your attention quite unlike else at present. Sprawling out over the whole A-side, Flørist instantly creates a dense atmosphere with shattered breaks and harmonic textures, dropping 4/4 for subtle, off-beat variations. The rolling punches are delicate yet devastating in effect, seemingly raising the tempo by a major factor, whilst also retaining a calm, restrained air.
Nothing short of essential, Baroque Sunburst may only be on their third release, but are already showing undeniable quality.
