Bal5000 - Bleu Infini EP [INVINC 13] LTD 12" EP
With recent outings by Strange Culture and Sordid Sound System taking the lead, this one by Budapest's Bal5000 is quite possibly their most dancefloor friendly release yet.
All four cuts inhabit a space somewhere at the very edge of 'house music' but are steeped in soaringly cosmic italo-esque synth lines and bubbling, motorik arpeggios reminiscent of early '80s minimal.....the result is a real sonic treat: hypnotically transcendent, yet beautifully melodic, and all solidly underpinned by some seriously low-end sub-bass, tight rhythms and pistol-sharp snares.
Bal5000 has been getting plays from Doc Martin, Ponty Mython (Dirt Crew), DJ Harri (Sub Club), The Beat Broker and more
Limited to 300 hand-numbered copies.
Here's what's they say:
“Awesome, really loving this!! […] this is so great!” (The Beat Broker / Dream Chimney)
“Nice !!!!” (Daniele Baldelli / Eskimo)
