Written from juni 2010 till September 2011. 5 tracks ranging from Detroit-techno, Electro and IDM.
The EP starts of with the haunting "Polar nights" in which Higgs makes a musical equivalent of the 24 hours winternights in the arctics. Imagine being in the north of Norway or on Svalbard outside warmly dressed with a cup of hot chocolate while watching the northern lights.
Next up is the melancholic "Not forever". IDM made in the vein of the more easy accessible IDM like Abfahrt Hinwill or Bola. Higgs Foton loves his Autechre records, but in here he aims to please, while Autechre aims to puzzle. Whatever you like!
The title track is a funky piece of electro for the saturday afternoon. Going to the mall for groceries, getting some new gadgets and products, and topping it off with apple pie and coffee at the restaurant. Living the good urban life.
Next up is a cosmic piece called "Formalhout". When making these space sounding compositions one always has a hard time making up a title. Naming it after as star is always a good idea. Formalhout it is!
The EP closes with the dark and brooding "Tik Klik" This Dutch title translates into "Tick Click" in English. Really! Pounding beats, dark atmospheres, and a musical link deeply routed in the original techno from Detroit. Dark, but warm and funky.
Have fun with these 5 new tracks! Release is free, but is Bandcamp tops it off because of only 200 free downloads a month, better wait for next month.
