What better way is there to get your fan-base stoked on your upcoming album than to release two amazing tracks that didn’t make the album’s final cut. Well that’s exactly what UK bass juggernaut Reso decided to do, and I am absolutely STOKED on his long awaited debut album, Tangram, set for release on November 5th.
About a month ago he released an extremely atmospheric-driven drum n bass track that demonstrates his complete control across all the land of EQ and Frequency (if this wasn’t apparent already). This track has a sort of minimalistic, dreamy quality to it that, in ways, resonates with me in the same way as Minnesota’s Astral Projections EP—even though they are both pretty different stylistically. Take a listen.
The second of the two tracks that didn’t make the album’s final cut, titled “Eva,” was just released a couple of days ago. This 8 min. track also has an ethereal quality to it that makes me wish the song would never end. The awesome drum work along with the riding bassline compliment the spacey atmosphere he creates here.
If this is the quality of the tracks that didn’t make the cut, what sort of massive production are we in for when the album drops on November 5th? I have a good guess, but we’re just gonna have to wait to find out.
