Cousin Carl gladly presents its second release 'Everything I Don't Need' with three handsome pieces by proficient Istanbul-based producer Voyd.
The EP opens with 'Not Me', a very suitable greeting to our ears that dwells in a half forgotten dream accompanied by forgiving yet firm rhythmic sequences that are perfectly complemented by a groggy bass--line. The prelude has ceased and the curtain rises on a more experimental 'TGHDYS'. This second edition hypnotises the listener with an unwinding pad until the piece breaks into a movement-infused, well-swung rhythm section of the highest grade. The EP concludes with 'The Opposite', a rather fitting summary of the entire release: Lofi, kooky & completely bewildered. The piece is grounded by a broken groove that stumbles past ear-shot in a drunken manner with its arm slung round the shoulder of an inherent bass-line. In between these stumbles, a wise vocal sample lectures the listener on certain elements of life's gospel.
This is certainly a strong release from Voyd, his soundcloud page is something keep a close eye on, most of his tracks suggest he has a talent for profound, lofi & saturnine house.
We challenge you not to head bob at any point during this EP.
