Premiere: Prayer ‘Set Me Free’

Rua Sound continues its SPHERE’s EP series this month with the release of Prayer’s ‘Io’ EP. Listen to ‘Set Me Free’ below. 

Launched in February with Noroi’s ‘Adrastea’ EP,  the imprint seeks to explore the darker strains of music across the hardcore continuum – from shadowy dubstep and techno to jungle, breaks and 2-step. London-based Prayer serves up three euphoric cuts, capped off with a remix from jungle supremo Tim Reaper. The release is the third in a series of releases on the label that will be named after one of Jupiter’s moons, and feature original artwork by Yorobi (Josje Bijl) inspired by Galileo’s sketches of them.

Opener ‘Set Me Free’ erupts like the echo of a Fantazia rave through a cosmic wormhole, all vintage vocal calls, Amen breaks and scorched synths. ‘Break Through’ turns the dial up on those melodies, dowsing its crunchy garage beat in full-blown trance keys and an indulgent acid line. 

‘Reteoric’ is a 12-minute jungle epic for the end of the rave, boasting a vocal sample that will delight fans  of Bicep and Ejeca’s classic ‘You’. Reaper puts a typically high-voltage spin on things, ending the EP on a blistering high. 

‘Io’ will be released on 16th June. Pre-order it here.
