'Rise' EP [HRTC004]

by Circo



HERETIC continues it’s journey down the dark path deep into the electronic music underground. Brighton producer Simon Benjamin aka Circo returns after recently releasing on the Cult City imprint and featuring on HERETIC Compilation 01 in 2014. Delivering his ‘Rise’ EP, 3 blistering original tracks, backed with outstanding remixes from Nuvaman & Denham Audio.

The title track ‘Rise’ opens up proceedings, distorted bass drones lead into a skippy beat. The bass grows tougher with added sub elements as a solitary twinkling key guides us along. One for the steppers.

Next up ‘Dive’ plunges deep into the murky underground of Circo’s mind. The bass growls and twists subtly around intricate tribal percussion.

‘Ankti’ is Circo’s final assault on the senses. Lured into a false sense of security by familiar tribal percussion, the track bursts into life like a runaway train. A solid four to the floor beat makes it hard to resist.

Finally the remixes come from Nuvaman and Denham Audio, both of which have been rapidly rising through the ranks. Nuvaman twists ‘Ankti’ into another dimension; the half step beat is teamed with pulsating kicks and vocal chops. Denham Audio close the EP with their seriously dark remix of ‘Rise’ featuring pitched down basslines and haunting atmospherics.
