Darko Esser’s Wolfskuil Limited kicks off 2018 with Sugarlump EP by the Czech artist HRTL. Known for his 100% improvised hardware live sets and cassette releases on his own Bűkko Tapes label, ‘Sugarlump’ EP showcases HRTL’s solid production skills, flawless taste and an obvious passion for classic Detroit House sound.
The title track “Sugarlump” opens the EP with moody pads, evolving in dynamic rhythms progression and deep atmospheres. “Someone Stole Your Sweetroll” follows with low resonating bass drums and beautiful melancholic strings followed by “Dental Trauma” that intensifies this flow with a more pronounced acidic sound. “LOD” develops slowly with uplifting break beats overflew by celestial arpeggios, ending the journey with a charming touch.
HRTL’s Sugarlump EP is out February 9th, 2018 on Wolfskull Limited
