Lake Haze - Natural Insight (Creme 12-89)
Creme Organization look to Portugal’s fast rising Lake Haze for a new three track EP that comes a year after he debuted on the Dutch label with IVVVO. To date, the man born Gonçalo Salgado has also released on Unknown to the Unknown and LAMA and works under this alias, his own name and Chainless, always conjuring up a rather doom laden house sound.
Solar Flames opens the EP with a grand sense of sadness. Vast kicks pound below as eerie pads make for an unsettling atmosphere. When a slitting acid line comes in, the 909 pings really kick into action and the track takes off. Sinister Strike is just that, a driving and dark track with elastic bass and ravey stabs that make for physical listening. Lastly, Geisterbahnhöfe is a broken beat affair that is rueful and zoned out. Full of sombre, reflective open spaces and distant electro stylings, it rounds out a varied and vital EP.Buy Digital on Bandcamp
