Mysterious Berlin based label MASK preps its debut release titled ‘LEMMY’ with four untitled cuts
A new series born out of an established German imprint, MASK’s enigmatic debut release was produced
using a selection of analogue gear including a Moog Slim Phatty, E-mu SP-1200 and Nord Rack 2X.
The A side begins with a track built around a tightly programmed drum loop which subtly builds, laced with
mix-slicing hats and sub-low kicks whilst stretched out chords dissipate around a crunchy synth lead. The
second production is twisted and dusty, using flanging and reverberated effects to lead towards a distorted
breakdown, driven from the depths by gusts of full bodied snares and a growling sub line.
On the flip, dulcet tones of a female vocalist join lush melodic chords to cleanse the palette, whilst working
within the confines of a subdued yet crisp drum machine groove. The final track then strips things back
even further, employing minimalist percussive hits and a warm bass lead, leaving space for its soothing
female vocals to do the talking.
Unknown Artist ‘LEMMY EP’ drops on MASK this 28th April 2017.
