A Change Is Gonna Come EP

Rekids
Lapien, Metropolis, one half of Artefakt; call him what you will, but this three-tracker from Dutchman Nick Lapien on Radio Slave's Rekids is a straight dazzler. Perhaps even a bobby-dazzler. A 'Change Is Gonna Come' drives its way through nearly 10 minutes, adding layers of increasing drama. It's special. 'As It Is' slices up diva vocals, astride unsettling chords and clattering tribal percussion. Vexed, meanwhile, is all sublime Heard-eqsue deepness, with a pleasingly abrasive edge. From the top drawer.
