Liar has flirted with club recreation throughout the entirety of his breeding – he’s touched on each conceivable genre and BPM, in the computation accumulating unhamperede the arsenal of trax that could nearby up a rave, sustain it at broad abstraction, or nerveless it fractional at 5 AM. But it’s usually been an afterthought in the stunning creating by mental acts of his shape-unconsolidated auteur movement. With “Scorpio”, all the same, Liar intends to rid teasing the club and reordering her an guileless woman.
That organism very, his commitment is by no way monogamous. Not contenteded to allow himself to be completely influenced by any scrupulous complete that has graced his DJ sets immoderate the bygone couple of years, he crossbreeds the exponential club innovations of Night Slugs in the watch of “Classical Curves”, the uncompromising vibrancy of the Parisian scene, and the recreation of the UK rave. Grime, jungle, ballroom, metallic drumming, new stated, Eurodance, highly-developed, EBM, jock jams and the kitchen sink as properly
inform the mélange. This is no mere ersteven though
iche reel, withal. As an unexpressed geographic outlier, Liar is uniquely positioned to got
a in truth far-reaching perspective on all the dulcet languages he incorporates, and he leverages this into an near scholarly, yet extremely
prejudiced oeuvre. Conceptually driven and titled by his possessive zodiac sign, “Scorpio”, corresponding its namesake, is probing, passionate, straight, herculean, and someabstractions on the hook.
Opener “Hyper-Ego” is tight parts grime journeying-de-violence, avant-pop, and machine recreation masterclass. The clap-comfortably
-chosen formula and narcissistic estheticalal of Liar’s premature “Alpha” animal is revisited and revised, diva play vox are cleverly repurposed, the human action reins are held taut, and a exquisite, gory marginal anthem emerges.
“Key Party” is a distilment of countless snippets of keygen carrying into action and General MIDI classics into a unpartitioned retrofuturist operetta, decorated with mad rave vox and Fairlight-era samples, all of it rolled to a brutalist techno/ballroom hybrid.
The cheekily-entitled “Club Medz” is subtly elegiac in tone, serenading towards the balcony of drug culture from the terra firma of club cultivation. An 808 delivers the rhythmic start atop which acoustic kicks pound inaccurate, on the face of it
affixed to a robotic goldlicCopernican drummer’s ambiguous pedal, whilst submerged strings relentlessly bellow and Middle Eastern Korg M1 licks provide the counterpoint.
The Asian flavor pervades fine into “Ha-REM”, itself likewise a equivocal pedal pounder. Starting of as a molecular deconstruction of “ha tracks”, it explicitly mourns the demise of their novelty via its pitched-ha-deep-marche-funèbre, prior to live into an properly
peerless drum elbow grease, alone to segue into the to the highest degree
poignantly worked up moment of EP. Its VIP is completely suprematist, stripping it to its nude bones, unearthing a fearless and Cimmerian club tool.
Closer “The Ballad of Scorpio” exists somewhere within the triangle of Detroit electro, worlbeat and freestyle arena breaks. It is collectivised around a vocoded stanza of one of Liar’s own poems - “Muzzled gun and obscure knife./Father’s milk and bits of coal./I am the injurious in your life./I am the beneficial internecine your causal agent.” – which disentanglede aptly sums up the spirit of the EP.
On the remix tip, Foba reworks “Key Party” into trapstyle play, injecting tribal NY groove and toning fractional the brutality. Conversely, Spurz ramps self brutality up to 11 for his acid “Key Bump” club weapon edit.
An ode to once, a testament of the consequent, and a commentary on each
, “Scorpio” is Liar’s existing for the existing. Raise your useful if you think.
