Swiss DJ, Reber’s, latest EP released offers up three tracks bringing groovy house energy. Each track is entirely different in their own right but leaves you wanting more. Offering up a collection of sound that ranges from tech minimal to groovier house, and even leaving us with some old school hip hop vibes. Released with record label Slightly Sizzled White, #15 top minimal house label on Beatport and sister label to Slightly Sizzled Records. They continue to go from strength to strength with consistent releases.
Reber kicks off the EP with its grooviest track and the one that caught our attention. Starting out with a funky acid baseline that is an immediate hook to get your foot tapping. This is combined with spacey highlights that trickle in and out the background before bubbling into some catchy vocals, sang by Reber himself. This 7 min track captivates your energy, setting the tone for the rest of the EP.
Transitioning into the second track, Divine, which sets the scene with a tech drum loop before dipping into a refreshing break of old school hip hop. The range of drum beats take us through a journey of house before wrapping up the track with some true noughties hip hop energy.
The third track, Fire, dives into deep techno with a thick baseline. Pausing in the middle of the song with funky vocals before leading into a snare drum tempo that wraps up the EP in a dance inducing finish. Glitchy sounds, electric melodies, all creating a captivating atmosphere. A solid EP by Reber highlighting not only his skills on the Roland 303 but the vocals as well.
