Ed DMX returns to the Shipwrec imprint for his sixth outing, reaffirming his status as an electronic music polymath. Operating under his seasoned DMX Krew moniker, the British virtuoso navigates through a labyrinth of electro, electronica, and techno, each track a distinct facet of his expansive sonic palette.
"Parasite" kicks off the EP with a bassline that's as rubbery as it is resilient, providing a grounded foundation for ethereal melodies to float above. The drums, drenched as if in cosmic rain, add a tactile layer to the celestial atmosphere.
The title track, "Tree in Space," is a quirky symphony of off-kilter bleeps and beats. Its robust basslines are punctuated by whimsical electrofunk brass notes, as if inviting the listener to a cosmic jazz lounge where genre labels disintegrate in the heat of musical alchemy.
"Unbelief" is a study in contrasts, where skeletal scales clash and meld with a formidable wall of bass. The track's angularity is softened by sweeping keys that act as a gravitational force, pulling the disparate sonic elements into a harmonious orbit.
Closing the EP is "Meltdown," a genre-defying concoction that blends acid, braindance, and techno into a singular auditory experience. The track is a nocturnal journey, where brooding notes and fractured percussion coalesce around a simmering 303 squawk, each element forging its own path yet contributing to a unified soundscape.
This EP is not just a collection of tracks; it's a testament to Ed DMX's enduring ability to stretch both boundaries and imaginations. It's a sonic tapestry where each thread, whether icy electro or textured techno, contributes to a larger, intricate pattern that only a craftsman of his calibre could weave.
