After years of mainly working on coproductions, Andre Crom started to dive deep into solo studio work in november 2015, and since then has been pretty much obsessed with nothing else.
These tracks belong to the first results of these endeavours; more will soon follow.
The EP opens with “Jaunde”, a detroit-influenced spacy cut, somewhere between techno and house. Building on the foundation of a solid Kick&Sub groove we are welcomed by a deep and hypnotic arp theme, wrapped into warm bass pads and a classic string. A perfect track for the later hours of a set.
“Ritus” is aimed more towards building tension, an energetic syncopated stab lead, demanding claps and a tight groove build towards an epic breakdown, before a warm pads gives resolve.
“Momentum” is clearly the peaktime cut of the package, built around driving percussions and an intense arp lead.
Charlotte De Witte, one of Belgium’s most promising newcomers and known from several EP’s on Turbo, makes her OFF debut with a remix of Jaunde, taking things into a more linear and darker direction.
