Title: Radôme EP
Format: 12″ Vinyl
A lush 90s vibe haunts this first offering by new Parisian talent Voiron, but not one of simple nostalgia – one of real class. The glittering layers, futuristic architecture and spaceship motions of opener “Radime” bear the true density of some early Warp and Reflex classic productions. One doesn’t need to go any further to feel that the sleek skyline and mental landscapes Voiron draws here might be the natural extension of those started by Aphex Twin’s Selected Ambient Works or even 808 State’s Hacienda dance cuts.
“Channel 5″‘s wise chords and vintage drum pads only confirm that lineage, and so does “Zenzone”‘s acid-tinged electro. It takes a reshaping of the EP’s main theme by American producer Fred P to digress towards soulful deep house territory. All that makes Radime a new strong number in the Concrete Music catalogue, and a charismatic statement for young producer Voiron, who’s already supported by modern house heavyweight Photonz and several big names on the Paris club scene.
