Chymera: New release (Ovum) + mix (Transitions)

Irishman-in-Berlin Chymera returns to Josh Wink’s Ovum label with two superb house tracks.

The title track is redolent of Chymera’s melodic techno roots, but sounds more polished and assured. A surging bass and chiming cowbells provide the basis for crystalline synths, hissing percussion and dramatic woodwind. “Canavan Calling” is even more impressive; apparently inspired by a session with a Mini Moog, it revolves around a huge, dense bass which underpins thumb clicking percussion, chopped up, half-heard vocals and a building, droning riff. Once all of these elements are combined, they sound like a particularly malevolent version of Redshape.

CHYMERA – THE DEVIDED SELF EP

Available now on digital and (soon) Vinyl at all the usual outlets:
