Codex Cigas EP

Faster Than Music
Casazza has form on Cultivated Electronics and Archipel, and ‘Codex Cigas’ is more impressive proof of a producer on the rise. ‘Rafal Organ’ is ocean deep electro, with a heavily swung, almost two-step beat, squelchy synth bass and filtered percussion draped around dubby pads. The title track is weird breakbeat with a Detroitian touch, while ‘Lino’ is abstract, funk filled electro with jazzy chords and snippets of soul vocal. On his remix, Alavux adds razor-blade distortion and ominous buzzing bass, and Penso Amor Digo Fúria and Kronom each offer their own left field variants. A bumper package.
