Erdi Irmak – All My Life EP (Movement Recordings)

The 75th release on Movement Recordings sees the return of one of Turkey’s best up and coming talents to the label. Erdi Irmak made his Movement debut early in 2013 with his ‘The Secret Valley’ EP which remains as one of the labels top releases this year. The Turkish producer has continued on a strong run through the first half of the year with appearances on Mistique, Balkan Connection, Lowbit and Bermudos. His new EP for Movement Recordings is entitled ‘All My Life’ and it comes with three brand new original productions.

The title cut ‘All My Life’ gets underway with a low slung, grinding groove that really carries a big presence. As wavering hypnotics slowly fade in to the mix the growling bass swells become all the more engulfing. A short break introduces a trippy lead which weaves its way through the tracks framework all while upping the energy towards the main break. The interwoven melodies flow through the drop in a mesmerizing fashion and cast a gorgeous melancholic sheen over the framework. The second act showcases a powerful conclusion with all the elements coming together for a masterful wall of hypnotic bliss.

The second composition ‘9 Moons’ finds Erdi delivering a funky, more tech house inspired production. The big bass stabs create a cavernous groove while waves of percussive gates generate some wicked momentum. The introduction of a whistle-like lead complements the skippy groove in such a perfect way and overall dance floor appeal rises dramatically as a result. Following a well crafted break the swirling clusters dissipate to reveal the hook heavy lead once more and the energetic groove pushes forward for a great finish.

The final track on the EP ‘The Time Is Now’ is another smooth hypnotic masterpiece from Erdi. Subtle vocal hooks combine with soft rhythmic stabs and some intricate, metallic tinged electronics for an up-tempo groove that’s loaded with energy. Big sweeps and escalating lead hooks create some dramatic tension which builds mightily as the main break begins to take shape. The gyrating rhythms flow through some deadly modulation before reaching a massive crescendo that accompanied by gargantuan sweeps and the full groove. A massive dance floor moment just waiting to happen on the this one! Release Promo Hype Chart Top 25
