Railway Mood EP
Alessio Mereu is pleased to scoop up Ukrainian producer Qbeck for a full EP on AMAM, titled Railway Mood. "Eureka" has an irresistible, galloping groove, with an off-kilter tick-tock giving a countdown to eternity. Soon, after the slightly unnerving melodic plucking sounds, you can hear breathy gasps punctuating the atmosphere. Then, Hooved takes the more menacing aspects of Qbeck's original and reworks them into his own style. On the flipside, Romanian producer and Highgrade Recordings artist Mihai Popoviciu offers his own vigorous interpretation, combining Detroit otherworldliness and Chicago jacking rhythms to take you on a nocturnal cruise.
