Coni – Imaginarium Essai EP (Trilogy Tapes 037)
You could never accuse Parisian artist Coni of releasing too much music; to date, the ClekClekBoom-affiliated artist has released just three EPs in four years. Clearly, these releases have impressed The Trilogy Tapes founder Will Bankhead, as he's snapped-up a four-track EP from the talented French producer. It's the A-side that sparkles the most immediately, beginning with the curious looped sound effects, slashed jazz chords, swinging rhythms and bubbling electronic hits of "Into The Silly World". Arguably even better is "Zex Plongeon". While not as thrillingly unusual as its' predecessor, it feels more obviously tailored to club play. It's creepy, deep, drowsy and tense, with slowly pulsing chords and ghostly textures stretching out over a tidy techno groove.
