Brian Cid – Pluto EP – microcastle

Changing your mind about something musical is sometimes the sign of true significance. First of all I thought this was really good, now after some more time it sounds extremely good. Rock n Roll comes armed with three chords, drums and (hopefully) gritty melody. This however hits you with a bagful of subtleties, plugged into the electrical mainframe.  Although exploring a slightly differing route than MUUI’s recent and very sublime release the EP begins with the blissful bass fuelled title track, Pluto which feels that bit more ‘progressive’ in nature, yet reveals itself in layers of sizzling sound as atmospherically charged keys transmit emotional resonance above and beyond. A remix from Marvin & Guy follows re-imagining the elements, while second original Mancha proceeds to work a series of rhythms to the point of distraction, leaving the probing beauty of Dimensions to end seeking for further ethereal revelations that soon realize themselves via an array pulsating synthesizers.

Release: April 7 (Beatport Exclusive) / All Stores: May 5
