Release Date: June 5th, 2012
Via Gravitas Recordings: Fresh from the musical hotbed of Colorado comes “The Center of Gravity” on Gravitas Recordings, the debut EP from bass heavy producer The Digital Connection. Right out of the gate, genre lines blur as this six track EP embraces considerable influence from dubstep and glitch hop without ceding exclusivity to either. Crisp and textured sound design contrasts the stirring melodic progressions throughout each track’s diverse arrangement, keeping the listener fascinated and eagerly anticipating every twist and turn.
Spawned from dreams of broken toy sounds, “Unusual Entities” starts the release off with a healthy dose of midtempo bounce. The funky title track shares a similarly upbeat rhythm, effortlessly blending relaxed chords into bubbling bass noises as the song progresses. Both “An Imbalance” and “On A Brighter Note” focus on rolling 808s and pitch-bent synth work, manifesting injections of psychedelia into the 140bpm environment.
“Unusual Entities” gets a heavy re-glitch from Gravitas’ own Cryptex, taking a slightly more aggressive approach without losing structural integrity. Headtron’s emissary GoldRush brings up the rear with a seductive take of “On a Brighter Note”, focusing more on the lush intricacies of the original while keeping the bassline more restrained and tasteful.
As a free gift in support of the release, The Digital Connection has also concocted an anthem-esque remix of Flight Facilities’ nostalgic track, “Crave You”. The rework expands on the original’s innate feel-good qualities while adapting it for a dancefloor setting.
