Andy Garvey - More Than Meets The Eye
X-Kalay - XK022
Rising Australian DJ and producer Andy Garvey debuts on X-Kalay showcasing her take on deep and breaksy electro.
Title track and A1 “More Than Meets the Eye” is a thoughtful, finely crafted cut. Built around a weighty acid riff, stacked pads and a delicate twinkling melody, it’s as equally suited to the introspection of headphone listening as it is the club. Next up, “This Silence is False” darkens the mood and ups the tempo - the stepping rhythm and frantic breaks making it perfect material for those later floors.
On the B “Double Planetoid” has echoes of early Massive Attack; a superbly expansive track of swelling pads and undulating bass, it drifts in and out of focus underpinned by a chunky breakbeat and shimmering hi hats. Finally, closing things out is fellow Australian Tred’s rework of “This Silence is False”. He remixes Andy’s original into a 160 BPM techno monster, utilising the acid line perfectly and pumping it with pure 4x4 energy. Heat!
