Wild Dark & Ariaano – For the People
New York-based Wild Dark teams up with Ariaano to create the perfect early morning hand-in-the-air moment on ‘For the People’
Release date: November 26th, 2021
Next up on the Gardens of Babylon’s release schedule are NY-based brothers Corey and Ryan who form Wild Dark, along with Ariaano (1/2 of Anjunadeep mainstays 16BL and a member of the Dutch Electronic trio Cubicolor).
With releases on labels including Flying Circus, Do Not Sit, Anjunadeep, and Akbal Music, their productions are dancefloor-oriented. Yet, very suited for those sunrise/sunset moments with more emotive and soulful melodies.
The Ep build-up
Opening with ‘The Instruments’ shuffling percussion and soft sonics complement the deep, rounded kicks. More melodic aside’s midway signal the arrival of warm analog bass notes and vocal ad-libs. Gaining pace, pads and keys add tension, reaching a dramatic and satisfying conclusion. ‘The Delay is Back’ begins with an insistent woodblock groove and one-note pad. Spiky FX nuance and clever percussion allow the minimal vibe to breathe until the chants spark the track into life with some exciting drum work.
Rounding off the Ep is the title track ‘For the People’. Sparse, organic drums give way to repeated carnival chants and soaring melodies gaining pace throughout. reaching fever pitch, the groove drives on for the perfect early morning hands-in-the-air moment.
