ÖLF – Planes EP [MR001]

Ölf, small-town duo yet unknown to the crowds make a triumphant entrance into the Micropop Records hall of fame with these three titles of their aerial, elevated and sophisticated house. “Vibe is the Vibe”, the EP’s first track, methodically unveils a slow groove over 4”18’, supported by a powerful bass; the whole complimenting angelic ethereal voices, singing their line over and over into infinity. “Planes” follows, light and timeless; the cymbals bounce softly, the whole rhythm seems to spring as a keyboard dares a few subtle notes that linger in the heights. And Finally “NNNN” lands at the end, to perfectly complete this promising EP with a pure instant of power house, with a tension rising over 7”. Just the surprise you needed to keep the dancefloor sweating.

Ölf, duo grenoblois encore inconnu au bataillon, débarque en fanfares sur Micropop Records avec 3 morceaux d’une house aérienne et classieuse. Vibe is the vibe, la première face de l’ep, déroule un groove lent et méthodique sur 4mn18, renforcé par une basse puissante soutenant des voix angéliques répétant à l’infini “you can see, were you ?”. Planes suit, légère et intemporelle; les cymbales rebondissent, le rythme entier semble rebondir et un synthé égrène quelques notes qui se délaient en altitude. Enfin, NNNN complète à merveille ce premier EP prometteur avec un pur morceau de power house qui monte en tension sur plus de 7 minutes. Parfait pour surprendre et faire suer à grosses gouttes un dancefloor qui finalement n’attendait que ça.
