Rise & Shine

‘Rise & Shine’ is Substance aka DJ Pete’s first new material in over 20 years. Different in approach to those seminal EPs on Chain Reaction, the title track sees the German producer weave together hollowed-out, spiky drums and melancholic melodies. 'Countdown' is more robust, resonating to the tough broken beats that define Pete’s Wax Treatment residency, before breaking into deep, reflective chords. 'Cruising', meanwhile, is a linear affair that resounds to grainy kicks and eerie soundscapes. It’s a somewhat understated comeback, but that’s exactly how Pete rolls.
