Review: Recently celebrating their third year in business at Berlin's infamous Club der Visionaere, Romanian imprint Polen are back with this new EP by Inner aka Cristian Ghiban, with some more and deeply emotive minimalism. On the A side there's "Breakup" with its high fidelity sound fuelled by a clean, broken beat with soulful pads and processed vocal samples while "No Light Without D" gets properly deep and ethereal . On the flip we've got "Pause & Stop" which is probably the most energetic cut on here; this highly engineered micro-house cut ticks all the right boxes. Finally "Why Don't You Let Go" is the kind of reduced mini-funk that gives a nod to the likes of Seuil or Robin Ordell.
Review: Twwth & Desto welcome brand new act Inner to the fold by way of this crystalline quartet of 23rd century trap constructions. Swaggering on the cosmic side, there's a touch of the moody Hudsons to the opening track "Pain" before the beats step up into more of grime energy and textures melt into a wavy sensation on "Crystal Ember". Dig deeper for the fractured, clipped and sense-blurring "Closa" before a final 135 hurrah on the RL Grime meets Nick Warren spatial star-gazer. Sweet dreams.
