Resolute EP

Freerotation
The second release on the revered festival’s spin-off label captures two differing moods. On the A-side, shimmering piano keys and magical, sun-dappled melodies dance their way over the jittery rhythm of ‘Resolute’ and the more subdued, beatsy ‘When’. On the flip, Monoak explores a darker world; the same complex, at times knotted grooves are audible on ‘Amay’ and ‘Sync Sequence1’, but the melodies are darker and more reflective, hinting at times at a haunting otherworld. It’s an impressive release that bodes well for newcomer Monoak’s future.
