Myriadd - Time Will Tell (Creme 12-67)
Myriadd is Craig Stainton, a producer that has also released as Acid Phreex and Mantra on labels such as Bunker Records, Signals and Creme Organization, to where he returns now with a new four track EP that explores plenty of mystic house and techno territory.
Kicking off the release is ‘Time Will Tell’, which is a nicely frayed, rough round the edges bit of house music with a deep and lashing bassline as well as some rich and rounded melodic hooks. ‘Forever Yours’ kicks that bit harder and more insistently but bares the same sense of misty melodic lushness. Various lines fly about like spirits in the night and bring a haunting sense of melancholy to proceedings before B1 ‘Gold Section’ hiccups and stutters pleasingly. Like everything here, it’s a fairly rich, dense track that layers everything on top of each other with little break for breath. Final track ‘At One’ is backed with the sort of serene pads that have you day dreaming about the future as jacked up beats kick below and all manner of synths whip around in the foreground. House music never sounded as magical as when in the hands of the talented Myriadd.
