Guy Gerber’s Rumors welcomes Italy’s Agents Of Time for an EP of delicately crafted dancefloor electronics in ‘Prince Of The Stars EP’ this March.
‘Mud Battles’ opens with muted and subdued tones, gently unravelling into a symphonic arrangement of analogue synthesis and 4/4 kick drums. ‘Rise To The Power’ picks up the pace with shuffling percussion and a series of melodic motifs before moving into an enticing extended breakdown.
On the flip, ‘Prince Of The Stars’ opens with fielding recordings alongside a skippy, broken beat, carrying the track through a sequence of emotive passages, a theme that continues with the final track on the 12”, ‘The King Of Our Days’. The digital-only ‘Jimmy The Jester’ adds a welcome bonus for USBs worldwide in the form of an acidic, low slung chugger, an exceptional closer to a standout EP.
Agents Of Time have been impressing audiences since 2013 via the likes of Maceo Plex’s Ellum Audio and Kompakt, alongside their own Obscura imprint. Turning their sights to Guy Gerber’s enchanting Rumors label, the outfit draw on years of experience to deliver an EP drenched in dreamy downtempo atmospherics.
