“The Visits EP” brings a very warm, and long overdue, welcome to FD onto Dispatch Recordings. An artist we have strongly supported for some time now, has collated an incredibly versatile release that succeeds in satisfying a wide variety of moods. These five tracks demonstrate the sublime talents of an often underrated producer.
For the opening track FD returns alongside Script, for a track reminiscent of their earlier releases, the EP’s lead track - “Locked Out”. Lulling us into a false sense of security with lush melodic tones, the track completely transforms into a rough, gnarling stepper; clinical snares strike across the rugged terrain, in true screw-face fashion.
On the B-side, we are greeted by the illustrious rallies of “Luisa’s Move”. Guided through by evolving layers of percussive flickers, it’s the deep, cordial bassline that really grips the emotions; affectionately tying all the components into a subtle, articulate roller.
“Bleak” is a meticulously formed old skool tribute brought right up to date with throbbing kicks & pounding low ends, all flanked by cleverly chopped breaks. Separated by an exquisite rave-style breakdown, the heads have something to really savour here.
The D side “So Real” sees FD partner up with another Dispatch debutant, System. Charming vocals caress warm sub lows, all sewn together by an undeniably cheeky groove. Gleaming with positivity, it’s guaranteed to catch crowds by pleasant surprise. X11 completes the package as a digital exclusive in effortlessly composed style, resembling a nightrider cruising through suburban streets on a late night. Cool, collected and with infectiously shady vibes, this tops off a magnificent all-round EP.FREE MP3s of The Visits EP by FD when you buy the Vinyl
