Black Hat - Willow

Black Hat’s latest release expands upon the excellence of his previous offerings with focused, powerful, and original tracks.

The EP starts with “Willow”, where a funky breakbeat builds into an eerie yet sexy atmosphere.  A true alien-horn-acid track tailor made for late night rave madness.

 

“Elm” is quieter but continues the eerie suspense, while “Sequoia” brings us back to the dancefloor with spiraling synths and tripped out, dark, seductive vibes.

 

Neither of the remixes adds much of interest to the stellar original material. The Prostitutes remix of Elm adds a head-bobbing, militant vibe to the track while Bankie Phones’ remix of “Sequoia” neuters the original with a new beat and some wandering synths.

 

Limited edition release out now on Motor Records.
