Q3A: Space Chamber

Q3A is the outsider alias of Hungarian producer Gergely Szilveszter Horváth. Having previously made a name for himself with a strong series of releases under his Route 8 moniker on labels like Lobster Theremin and Nous, the multitalented producer returns with a rather secretive four-track EP for Dutch label Delsin that presents no track titles – although the press release mentions the opening cut as ‘Lost Souls‘.

A1 opens with a flight of sci fi-sounding pads which set the mood for the rest of the EP straightaway. A nice synthline comes in halfway, breathing in some melodic flavour and Q3A toys with the pads’ low-pass filter to give it dramatic effect. The second track implant additional percussions, deftly melding them with the basic ingredients consisting of some pads and synth FX. A solid drum-driven opener.

On the flip, B1 goes for a slightly funkier hi-hat pattern and 303 stabs. Some child voice samples are blended together with melancholic pads to create a slightly nostalgic feeling. Yet another vocal sample – this time a male one,  is being used on B2 which easily make for the ‘Space Chamber‘ highlight.

"A solid, aptly-titled four-tracker that presents
a fine mixture of house, techno and electro."

The jungle’y rhythm together with the bassline pulls the track along while a simple synth melody with a touch of delay adds the defining character. Q3A also saved the best of his cosmonautical pads for this fourth cut, pairing them together nicely with a haunting female choir sample. Simply excellent.

Offering a solid, aptly-titled four-tracker that presents a fine mixture of house, techno and electro, Horváth creates a cohesive sound cosmogony. If the first tracks set the mood effectively, B2 is definitely the cut that’ll keep you pressing the repeat button over and over again.
