Having excelled in his more experimental side with the iTunes #1 electronic album “If It Were You, We’d Never Leave”
, the increasingly prolific Andrew Bayer
continues his return to big room sounds with the forward-thinking trance of "Perth"
and the twisted "Mirth Mobile"
Inspired by his times on Above & Beyond’s
Australian tour earlier this year, "Perth"
coils up an oscillating and menacing tech bassline before releasing into a nostalgic breakdown that nods to Bayer’s
love of classic trance. Evolving into a modern big room anthem, "Perth"
is a true journey and blends typically cutting-edge production with some vintage sounds.
A darker excursion full of growing funk that counters with a beautiful, deeply musical piano breakdown, "Mirth Mobile"
hits like a bastard son of Skrillex
and Above & Beyond
(two musical forces who were unexpectedly united at The Greek Theatre recently). A genuinely unique track, it completes another impressive EP from the US producer and is a reminder of his uniquely emotional and accomplished approach to EDM.
