Making his second appearance on Sincopat is British artist Ten Ven. A secretive artist, little is known about Ten Ven who likes to let his music do the talking, but with guest mixes for people like Shadow Child on Rinse FM and a sound that fuses melody with soul sometimes music speaks louder than words.
Also featuring on the release is a remix from Danish producer Christian Nielsen whose influences such as Kerri Chandler, Larry Heard, and Frankie Knuckles Christian fuses that classic House sound with modern melodic elements to create his own distinctive style.
Opening are the muffled synth stabs of ‘Think About It’ that are played with a raw energy to provide the foundation of the track. Taking its title from the commanding vocal sample, its rolling groove is completely infectious. Melodic elements are slowly introduced and it’s not long before a euphoric crescendo of the main breakdown ensues, but any arms in the air moments do not last long, as the kick drum soon crashes back in with devastating force.
Second is the Christian Nielsen remix of ‘Gandia’ which is percussion lead with a looped and tribal groove. Adding his own lead sound he uses short snippets of the originals various synth sections, showing particular favour to a rising burst of arpeggio. Careful to lose none of the originals charm, Christian’s scaled down version may be less epic, but it packs twice the dancefloor punch.
Track three ‘Gandia’ closes the EP with flittering percussion and a filtered synth line that blossoms into a stabbing rhythm as expertly executed textures add a startling sense of drama. Epic in proportion, the track's fragmented sections are joined by subtle modulation making it as captivating as it is unpredictable. Dancefloor focused and melodic, it’s fair to say this track is a true journey into sound.
