The record, which includes four tracks, is perfectly representative of the artistic versatility of the pair who and undeniably succeeds in the difficult task of assembling an EP for all tastes.
The four compositions feature (one by one and then again within them), many different musical movements: from the intriguing, sharp but also straight and rational Deep House of 'Hyper Glidin', which let the listener get instantly in the groove, to the disruptive energy of the following 'Portal Funk' with its deep kick-drum, its dry snare and its rhythmic structure that recalls quite a few 90s/00s Dance genres but all skilfully produced, with one foot in the present and an eye to the future. ‘Reaktor Theory’ with its slightly Acid attitude and its melodic virtuosity keeps the quality value extremely high, in a record which -up to this point- does’t seem to want to slow down the pace, on the contrary, it seems to want to keep the listener on the edge of a razor sharpened by crispy claps and ambient pads.
The closure is about the broken rhythms of 'Subsurface Nature' which, with its misty start, seems to hide but whose harmonic sky then opens up to let the sun's rays pass through a clear symphonic sky, ending a record that should be listened all in one go. The main feature of Terra Firma EP is that it is digestible by everyone, exactly like the food that can be found both in the fine foods deli and at the supermarket, which is more easily said than done.
It is electronic music with many influences mixed under one roof, chasing each other frantically but firmly. The result is an excellently produced product from a musical standpoint, the first of what we hope will be a long series of successful records.
