Cid Inc. – Seeker & Darpa (Replug)

The 31st release on Replug Records sees label boss Cid Inc. returning for a brand new EP. Henri Hurtig aka Cid Inc. is now in what promises to be the most essential year of his storied production career. With forthcoming releases scheduled on Anjunadeep, Sudbeat and Lost & Found Cid Inc. is set to unveil some of the most cutting edge music to ever come out of his studio. His new double A-side offering on Replug should be more than enough to his tide fans over as it offers two selections which have featured heavily in his sets over recent months.

‘Seeker’ leads the release off with an funky, energetic approach that is both fresh and inspiring. Cid Inc’s undulating waves of bass combined with seductive melodic hooks and alluring sheets of noise make for a powerful first act. The bounce and drive are sure to be brilliant on the dance floor and carry the piece to the main break with ease. The filtered down middle portion maintains the killer groove all while delivering some palatable tension. As the modulation reaches a fiery peak the swirling atmospheres get washed away as the infectious groove reappears for a charged finale.

Diehard Cid Inc. fans have been calling for the release of ‘Darpa’ for quite some time and at long last it is available here. With it being a prominent element of the Swedish producer’s sets in recent months the track has generated some much deserved attention from the electronic music underground. All Cid Inc. grooves are meticulously crafted and carved to perfection but ‘Darpa’ may be one of Henri’s most powerful studio compositions to date. The elastic-like bass stabs are adorned with a lovely acidic quality and make up the tracks energetic foundation. As the momentous rhythms build through the records first half waves of percussion, metallic hits and trippy electronics not only assault your senses but add a charging intensity to the tracks already impressive hypnotic swing. The main break is set for total dance floor exhilaration with a slow rolling wall of drum modulation adding the ultimate apex before the irresistible groove drops back in for a huge payoff. A massive return for Cid Inc. on his Replug imprint with both tracks rivalling the best work to ever come of his studio. Highly Recommended.
