The title and lead track ‘Lydia’ expresses acid synth designs that keep the listeners in a groove, building and building, around a lydian scale based melodic pattern that’s perfect for the club. The inspiration for this tune came to Alfie from a dream he experienced where the dream was completely based on the lydian scale.
The kick drums in ‘Bitter Lake’ know no bounds. Hard hitting in the correct frequencies, and a never-ending stab that cuts straight to the core. A very up-tempo song that uses a loop coupled with some exquisite transitions and trinkets to liven up an already addicting hook.
‘Infinite Libidio’ is a chiller of a track, focused around it’s percussive elements and vocal samples, the pads progression and makeup give the production a warm yet hard hitting feel and has been in regular rotation in their DJ sets for the past year.
Since debuting their 17 Steps record label in 2014, the rewards in building a diverse and forward-thinking entity has been more than just a success. They’re building a family and producing vibes like some of the most sought out boutique labels in the industry.
