Dark Arts Club – Get Emotional EP – Mirror Numbers

This latest from Bristol’s Dark Arts Club concocts an intriguing brew of the weird, wild and wonderful all in one go. Listening to the title track gives you that strange sense of being somewhere else reliving a dream, yet propels you hard and fast into tomorrow by its force of will. Maybe that’s down to the rush of sheer energy that courses throughout the arrangement raising expectation and emotions via the strident keys and their accompanying sense of musicality pointing to a time past, coupled with the melodic tease of vocals repeating. Label head SEFF then remixes the elements into a fully-fledged, big and bouncing take on nineties styled sounds with his nod to Rave on the 98 Rework. Remaining numbers Open The Box and Day & Night again play with history, although I’m not quite sure if that’s about reviving the dream or trying to make a new one.

Release: June 21 (Beatport Excl) (July 5 Full release)
