Music: Miskate - Drillbit EP [Foundsound 19]


Drillbit ep
(remix by Barem)

Foundsound’s own co-founder, a shy and beautiful American supergirl known as Miskate, returns with a fresh, new twist on her buggy trademark sound. Plus, Argentina’s Barem of Foundsound and Minus fame dishes out a minimal tech-house bomb that is an emotively mesmerizing remix.

Now with more than 15 records on labels like Karloff, Einmaleins, Microcosm, Alphahouse, Roman Photo, Wit and Foundsound, Drillbit ep might be Miskate’s strongest release to date. Miskate proves to have an amazing ability to take only a few significant samples -- whether it’s a field recording or her own voice -- along with simple groovy rhythms, and spawn irresistible works-of-art that djs can appreciate. Ranging form loopy dancefloor mayhem to deeply emotional abstractionism, Miskate’s Drillbit ep is powerfully enticing.

on a1 – “Drillbit” -- you get a loopy dancefloor gem shaped by tribally bongos, a bouncy bassline and a driving tech-house beat -- meanwhile all being relentlessly overshadowed by the melodic snarling and roaring of an electric drill. During the riveting breakdown, the intense wailing of the drill pleasurably cuts through your body while forcing your hands happily into the air.

on a2 – “What You Want” -- she goes deep and groovy with her own oddly pitched vocals, a captivating bassline and pleasantly haunting atmospherics -- moving with a sort of Villalobos-like structure along with profound emotions captured in the melodies of her voice, both melancholy and blissful at the same time.

on b1 – “What You Want (Barem remix)” -- the Minus superkid delivers a tech-house long-play fueled by bongo drums, Miskate’s stirring vocals and a climactic breakdown that’ll make audiences rejoice on the dancefloor.

So c’mon boys and girls! Take yourself and your audience on a tripped-out joyride through the wondrous worlds of Miskate and Barem!
