Harrison BDP - Invisible In The Dark EP
Lost Palms - PALMS037
Harrison BDP returns to Shall Not Fade for his seventh release for the label, this time on
the house-oriented Lost Palms sub-label.
The prolific Welsh producer has gained well-deserved attention for his consistently exciting
work over the past few years. He is rooted in the deeper side of house but experiments with
minimalism and techno. Fresh off a release with French dub techno label Berg Audio,
Harrison BDP brings some of that same energy to this smooth four-tracker.
‘Invisible In The Dark’ opens the EP up with a spaced-out, dubby house vibe. It builds slowly
into a beat for filling a darkened dancefloor, coupled with melancholic strings that are gently
soothing before the drop. The second track, ‘Slugs’, takes you back to the producer’s UK
roots, a chugging garage number with choppy vocals and rave inflections - it’s a dirtier track
than the first to close the A-side. The B-side is made up of two longer cuts - ‘Hate The Taste
Of Whiskey’ is a return to the housier sound we know from Harrison BDP, starting off
minimalist but opening up into soaring pads and clubby stabs - one to lose yourself in. The
EP closes with its grooviest offering in ‘Departure’. Built over a sultry, enticing bassline that’s
hard not to dance to, the finishing track is upbeat and playful, channeling retro house with a
hook guaranteed to get stuck in your head.
