Bass Cadet Records returns with a strong EP from its founders Arcarsenal.

After a 2 years hiatus, the team being focused on developing its Berlin based wamhearted vinyl-store, Bass Cadet Records is finally back on the label path. Alan Mathias and Etienne Dauta mostly known as duo Arcarsenal have been slowly but firmly raising a sound and work ethos since a couple of years now. The two frenchmen spent hours of works in their production nest where a love for jam and improvisation has led them to a fine understanding of each other and dialog within their influences. This new EP entitled “Hoodoo Spell” focuses on dancefloor material but always with atmospheres, textures, a pinch of psychedelism and a stress also laid on percussions and intense rhythm patterns. The opening track “Days Of Down” is a deep-techno cut where intricated melodies and synths pad are responding to subtles percussions and a loud bassline. “Least” follows up with a heavy drum rhythm which sustains dubby pads and stabs and soulful organ notes. A journey built to bring the listener into ecstatic dancing. The momentum of the EP is reached on the B-side where “Peoples Above The Sky” takes all the space. The track develops itself over nearly 9 minutes, starting from a smooth tribal pattern which slowly turns into a mental voyage where pads, organs, synths solo and acidic lines end in an epic drum break. To add a final point, the EP shows the crossover of house and techno that caracterizes Arcarsenal sound.
