Romanian record label, feeder sound, proceeds with its fifth pressing in the catalogue, this time inviting local duo Unisson to showcase their latest productions. Titled “Neverending Story EP”, the material provides a robust minimal sound, carefully crafted with intricate breakbeat rhythms, introspective textures and electric effects that sweep through the frequencies with style. The artwork for the vinyl features SANDi’s painting created alongside the duo’s performance on one of feeder sound’s LIVE sessions, an event that also acted as the online vernissage for the Street Art București exhibition.
Unisson are widely known for their releases with Raw Crafted Wax, Mulen, miNIMMAl movement and their own UNS Records. It is definitely a pleasure to see them joining the roster at feeder sound, where Dragutesku, Piktor, Oana and Bucurie have signed the previous EPs.
“Following the main idea of our favorite motto “Delivering vibes”, the record is built around contrasting moods. A side providing some trippy new sounds, while B side containing two old school beats with breaks influences” – Unisson
“Neverending” opens Side A with a twisted groove designed with reverberated drumming patterns, a wobbling bassline and hypnotic arpeggios that blend into an organic flow that’s smoothly complemented by warm background pads and subtly glitched layers. Following, “If I was a drummer” switches gears to a rather different sound, revealing a deeper composition that draws influences from jazz and funk for the percussion, bringing an engaging broken beat to the table along with inspiring minimalistic themes and arrangements.
On Side B, the journey sets off with “City Zen”, a rather downtempo-oriented cut infused with eerie vocal samples and lush atmospheric textures and chords. The progressive evolution seems perfect for the afterhours as well as for laid-back afternoon selections. Closing the EP, “Hemp Made” returns to a more uplifting tempo, laying out a spiraling breakbeat that leads echoing complementary elements and eerie synth work into a complex and steady-paced dancefloor tool.
