Zenk – Uriel EP
A2: Red Forest
B2: Uriel (Cosmjn Remix)
For this California label’s second release, they once again reach across the pond for one of Europe’s cuttiest.
Like.Minded presents Italy’s Zenk, label head of Micro Orbit Records.
Suburbs hits the ground running with a skittering purcussive cut, a versatile tool that could find its place anywhere from peak time groove to afterhours tripouts. Red Forest opens with understated, yet lush 90’s tech house inspired pads, then rolling into a contemplative forward-driven cruiser. Zenk dirties up his grooveboxes a bit on Uriel, nicely contrasting a lighter side of the EP, with whispy vocal samples and airy melodics. Closing things out, COSMJN channels the drums on Uriel and transforms it into a punchy bleeped out roller.
