Fehrplay puts on deep groove masterclass with latest EP, ‘Zeitgeist’
Fehrplay is back with a fresh dose of analog cinema from his Zeitgeist EP. The two-track effort the latest from the techno and deep house mastermind’s own Mood of Mind imprint. The producer’s already turned in a busy 2018, splitting EP and single releases across his own label and Above & Beyond‘s mighty Anjunabeats. Fehrplay’s latest two-track sees him unleash his creativity with two unique compositions, each one a dark and twisting journey.
The EP’s title track kicks thing off with a bang, as a wall of buzzing synths collapses into a driving bassline. Synthwave-esque pads fade in and out as the breakdown arrives. A majestic, brassy lead rises behind bright strings and carries the energy over the kick before that secret agent soundtrack bassline returns. “Fantome” abandons the driving four-to-the-floor feel, opting instead for a thundering breakbeat while signature Fehrplay plucks and atmospherics tie it all together. Zeitgeist’s world is futuristic and dystopian, but its grooves are powerful enough to uplift listeners in any environment.
