Badness EP - Violet X Bleid (Naive)

Title: Badness EP
Artist: Violet x Bleid
Label: Naive
Cat Number: naive002
Genre: Techno/Breaks Innit

A1: Badness
A2: Toxic
B1: Wall
B2: Abyss

I can detect a little of ‘The Art of Stalking’ in ‘Badness’, which is a big positive. What the track in question here does, however, is amplify the minimalism, if there is such a thing. Similar big production values are evident in the epic, sweeping breaks of the other three tracks here. One of the signifying aspects of this release is that each tune seems to eponymously vocalize itself within its respective sonic swathes, but I could be wrong about that. It’s a fine release though which, explores breaks and textures of different degrees, enhancing and sheathing them with varying strands of cosmic energy and uplifting melodic strains.
