Just as summer arrives, Sylphe’s bosses Holdie Gawn & Micawber are delivering their third EP ‘’Hypoferm\Senso’’. On the A Side ‘’Hypoferm’’ has Holdie Gawn’s trademark sound, with analogue bouncy warm snares and hi-hats, accompanied by synthesized modulations and raw filtering action, forming a chuggy, sleek rhythm with deep reaching basslines and a lot of movement. On the flip, Micawber’s ‘’Senso’’ offers a tribute to experimental composer John Cage by incorporating parts of his vocal works into creating a landscape of mysticism, riding along sub-bass tones and syncopated drums, an afterhours number with a psychedelic twist.
