Made In Paris – Erratic [EP Review]
Women in underground dance music are finally getting the spotlight they deserve. Artists like Amelie Lens, Charlotte De Witte, and Peggy Gou have made a dramatic entrance into the scene as some of its most promising new talents, while stalwarts like Nina Kraviz, The Black Madonna, and Nicole Moudaber continue to show off their edge around the world.
Made In Paris is another rising powerhouse, and her resume is already quite impressive. The Australian talent has carved her own niche in the melodic tech realm, earning acclaim and support from the likes of Richie Hawtin, deadmau5, Maceo Plex, and more.
Erratic is yet another testament to her talent. The three-track EP, released through Upon Access, is a multifaceted affair that shows off her production range.
Its eponymous opener kicks things off on an almost tribal note, lacing together enticing drum patterns and jarring melodies in to a deep canvas. It summons carnal feelings, bringing imagery of natural landscapes and unified movement to mind.
“Dispatch” is even more tense than its preceding track, using pianos and a chromatic ascending melody to catalyze goosebumps, and tougher kicks for added impact. Likewise, the “Journey Mix” rendition of the piece is even more brooding, with heightened continuity and added white noise.
