Ekserd – The Hidden Documents (Ressort Imprint RSI 006 – 2015)
Of Ekserd’s original material, the opener “Hidden Document I” behaves wildly when boosting blood pressure with rough drum driven material. Next, I can’t ignore the feeling of hearing a Kangding Ray track when “II” opens the door for dubby screeches and trancy elements already heard in the opener.
The B-side is dedicated to the reworks of visiting artists. Firstly, I/Y’s drops a high altitude version, before Svreca takes “II” to a trippy flight, for me the highlight of the release. To mention is also the digital bonus “Wons”, Ekserd’s co-op with Array Access, representing soft-spoken electronica. An EP that will find friends on the floor.
