Futra006: Villain – Vantage EP
Villain, best known for his releases on London’s Singularity Recordings, and as xfive on Droid Recordings has brought his adventurous, dark, and driven sounds to Futra. The Vantage EP marks the sixth release on the Los Angeles based music and arts label. Keeping in step with Futra’s diverse releases, the title track ‘Vantage’ opens on a bass heavy, melodic tip with chordal stabs and shuffled drums. The second track ‘Evidence’ features off-kilter syncopated percussion coupled with tripped out elements that guides the listener into a much different headspace. Following is ‘Recon’, a pure four-on-the-floor banger with metallic percussion on top of a sparse grooving backbone. The last track ‘Vantage (Subterranean Dub)’ ventures into outer space with a dubbed out almost ambient rework of the title track to sooth and carry the listener away.
Supported by: Alland Byallo, Andrew Grant, Complicit, Derek Michael, DVS1, Dustmite, EEZIR, Hyperactive, Icicle, Juan Basshead, Knyphy, Kuma, Mike Gervais, N-Type, Noah Pred, Paul Mac, Pawn, Sam Supa
