ABSTRACT ELEMENTS deliver their TENDERNESS EP on METHLAB RECORDINGS, bringing their smoothly crafted sonics to the label across four wide ranging tracks. The titular TENDERNESS embodies an unusual energy with its 4x4 beat, which drives its acidic lead to frenzied action alongside the promised affection of its vocal sample. RUBEROID’s bassline flows gracefully atop its lounging drumbeat, the sole star of a dance supported by the occasional sparkles of its diminutive synths. DISBELIEF presents an energetic drum pattern alongside languishing pads, which find themselves bound to give way to the warped machinations of its rapidly evolving bassline. Closing the EP is BLURTNAWT, which drifts upon its distant melody between moments of silken bliss and lumbering halftime, transitioning with ease between these polar extremes.
With their first EP on METHLAB RECORDINGS, ABSTRACT ELEMENTS present the full breadth of their innovative sound, drawing from multiple sonic sources for an EP born of exploratory desire.
