Headpocket’s new EP ‘Clock Systems’
He looks like the ominous producer he is. Blond-bearded, a woolen hat on his head, dark sunglasses. He’s from an unnamed region somewhere in or at the North Sea. Yet the “Clock Systems” EP by Emerald & Doreen newby Headpocket sounds very, very unmystical.
“Stone With A Hole” airs a cool summer breeze on bongos and orange layers of sunshine. “Alabaster” kicks in as wise as a 1990′s IDM-track, just to rearrange into an Eden of Roland drum machines. “Monkey Radio” sees the return of echo house, while the title track “Clock Systems” uses some human voices and heavy kick drums for a European take on organ house.
Bill Shakes gives “Alabaster” a treat by interpreting it as an x-file while Solid District turns “Stone with a Hole” cosmic.
Finally, Tunnelvision sails “Monkey Radio” away on a stoic 4-to-da-floor-monster bass wave plus soundscapes from air to sea and back again. Score.
