Edward delivers his latest collection of works, the Eddie Green EP via Smallville Records, comprised of four originals. For the past decade and a half, Frankfurt-original Gilles Aiken, better known to most as simply, Edward, has been unveiling his productions regularly via the likes of his most regular home Giegling, but also Baby Ford & Eon's Trelik, White, Die Orakel, or DFA, plus teaming up with Ricardo Villalobos in 2020 for their Disordered Rhythm Metronomy project on Perlon. Here though, Edward marks his debut for Smallville Records, a fitting home for his deep, dynamic and hypnotic style which regularly blurs the lines of house, techno and beyond. Up first is "Primal Dream," a raw and reduced journey through modulating synth flutters, squeaky percussive twitches and a bumpy, robust rhythm section. "Blue Glue" follows and diverges into a more mystical sonic world with haunting chants, resonant synth licks, meditative chimes and ethereal textures intertwined with crisp, crunchy drums. Title-track "Eddie Green" opens the B-side, embracing a more dubbed out, deep techno aesthetic via murky chord swells, clattering organic percussion, throbbing low end pulsations and vocoded spoken word vocal lines. The aptly title "So Slow" then rounds out the release, dropping the tempo and shifting focus Edward's more jazz-tinged influences with wandering piano melodies and soulful vocal chants uttering the track's title, underpinned by shuffled drums and waves of sporadic oscillating synth.
