Anno Patris EP (KR006)

by Phaedrus



Knightriders Recordings - Phaedrus - KR006

Smooth Operator
Smooth Operator (Mathew Anderson Remix)

Track one of Phaedrus' offering for the latest Knightriders release is a masterfully constructed piece of dance floor genius. 'Smooth Operator' features well thought out minimal drums, groovy basslines, and a vibe-filled synth stab that echoes away while the low, dark voice assures you that, 'Everything's running smoothly'

While maintaining the overall feel, Seattle's Mathew Anderson heads in a slightly new direction with his interpretation of Phaedrus', 'Smooth Operator'. While the dark, minimal goodness remains, Anderson instead keeps things subtle and sexy with a deeper breakdown, effected vocals, and an undeniable groove that will work it's way into your body, mind and soul.

'Hostility', the third track featured on Knightriders Recordings' sixth digital release, takes on a medieval-electro-industrial sound while maintaining the deep and emotional MO of this powerful EP. With divinely distorted drums, sweeping synths talking back and forth, and a sound that can only be described as a tiny mechanical hamster playing Zelda while running on his futuristic hover wheel, Phaedrus has himself a real big track!

The fourth and final track, 'Omnipresent', is a straightforward tech house work of art! Up beat and relentless, Phaedrus' conclusion features closely passing spaceships, alien stabs, and chords playfully battling the filtered, almost acidic bassline. It's difficult to describe the great energy this track brings - so take a listen for yourself!
