Robert R. Hardy returns to Deersky’s Soundteller Records this week with a brand new three track EP.
The Hungarian producer has been one of the label’s core artists over the years and makes his ninth appearance here. Robert’s latest is a thematic three track EP entitled ‘Therapy’.
The EP gets underway with ‘Light Therapy’ which finds Robert crafting a deep and atmospheric piece. The Hungarian producer’s groove carving abilities have never been in question and he’s dialed in another sultry foundation here. Warm, flowing slabs of chunky bass make for an incredibly powerful groove and the layers upon layers of shimmering bliss make for an enlightening journey. What pushes the track over the top are the underlying chord changes following the break; subtle and just powerful enough to generate a great reaction on a clued up floor. Wonderful stuff from Robert.
The EP’s second selection ‘Dark Therapy’ is as you would expect a more subversive but in many ways equally enchanting creation. Robert’s beat’s get toughened up here and the tailored framework allows that punchy dynamic to breathe. Again there’s nothing prominent here but rather a meandering motif which is most prevalent during the main break and then edited down for a trippy effect throughout the third act. A wall of white noise tastefully adds a growing tension throughout the entire track and makes for some exhilarating moments along the way.
The release concludes with ‘Last Therapy’ where Robert goes deeper with a spacious, classic sounding groove and some lovely lead themes. Smooth acid-like lines and an evolving key sequence make for the most distinctive cut on the EP and perhaps one of Robert’s most thematic records yet in fact. A beautiful track and a great way to end off and other exceptional outing from Robert and Soundteller Records. Don’t miss it.
