- Switch EP
MadTech Records | 19.01.2014
London’ Richard Main aka Kalyde is a new kid on the block, and Mad-Tech records deliver his first offering ‘Switch EP’ for 2015. The picks up from where they left off from 2014 putting out hit after hit, hits from artists such as Kry Wolf, No Artificial Colours, Mia Dora and Celsius to name but a few. Kalyde’s Switch EP is the bomb, and also includes a super remix from hotly tipped artist Applebottom.
Being part of the Az&Tor project and released hits on Mad-tech Records, Kalyde goes it solo this time around and starts the EP with ‘Switch’ which sees Kalyde employ an array of gritty, distorted percussive elements, square wave bass licks and bleeping synth shots as the driving force, while heavily processed vocal chops and intricate modulations throughout the composition keep things in an ever-unfolding state.
Following is the second original from Kalyde entitled ‘OB’, retaining a similar frenzied feel to the preceding cut with glitching synth hooks, a rugged bass hook and raw drum samples, yet instilling a dreamy air to the vibe with floating pad lines and bright vocal murmurs.
Man of the moment Applebottom then steps up last to round off the package, treating us to his groove-led, energetic style with loose stripped-back rhythms driving the record along while manipulating the original’s synth lines to generate a mind-bending, acid-tinged feel over its four-minute duration.
Watch out for his remix of Sidney Charles “CAVE RAVE” on Avotre Records.
