Impish – Silence (LP)
From certified breakbeat infused dancefloor steppers like "LFO" and "Go Ahead" towards more soulful rollers like "Lies" and "Absinthe" Impish efforts show determined dedication and craftsmanship when it comes his beats, bass-lines and musical arrangements. The collaborations and remixes come from close friends Meta on "Keep Warm", Vasilisa Jarlier on "Wind" and "Lies" as well as Lincoln, UK based duo Soligen & Type 2 reworking "Lonely Street" into a twisted nipple destroying club edit of the original track.
There is no compromise here.
No music aimed at entering popular playlists and definitely not music for the faint hearted. The album delivers with an unquestionable intent and perfectly demonstrates Impish's versatility and his direction in the spectrum of present day drum & bass.
Side: A, B
On the A side of 1 vinyl we find head honcho Impish delivering massively with "All Right". On the flip we find "Keep Warm" - a modest but weighty stepper with soulful and techy influences. Meta teaming up with Impish.
Side: C1, C2, D1, D2
Dropping with Impish's trademark heavy sub bass and a techy groove, "Go Ahead" always delivers the goods on the floor. Also here we find the oldest song written with the one and only Vasilisa Jarlier called "Lie". On the flip side, we move to the title track of the album "Silence" and "Humans".
All remaining tracks such as: "Lonely Street", "Wind", "Apologies", "LFO", "Absinthe", as well as the tracks taken from vinyl are available on a download card included to this LP box.
LP written & produced by Roman Impish, with: Vasilisa Jarlier, Alex Meta, Ben Blake, Chris Downs. Mastering: Enei, Impish. Vinyl mastering: Rinus Hooning
