Back to the world of EPs. Believe it or not, I’m one of those people who actually believes EPs are better for music — especially EDM — than albums are. Then again, after checking out Felix Cartal’s brand new album I might have to rethink that position.
Could you imagine if all of our favourite producers came out with long-players this year? How awesome would that be? Like the best year in the history of electronic music ever. But if that’s too much to hope for, I’d be willing to settle for a full-length album from this guy: Mord Fustang.
He’s back with his latest installment, a four-track EP called Welcome To The Future, and it’s chock full of the usual Fustangy goodness. Now, some of you may know that I care deeply for the Estonian DJ. He’s the artist who kicked off the first ever “Scott’s Selections” podcast, and for that alone holds a special place in my heart.
But enough of the violin strings and heart chords. The point is: Mord is back at his best, with that signature blend of Arps and heavy bass. Now, some artists with successful sound tend to get trapped by it, while others try so hard to escape it that they end up losing the thing that made us love them in the first place. Mord, however, seems to have found the right balance — evolving his sound in new ways, while holding onto those special qualities that first caught our ears.
