When Spaces released his debut EP One on Bleep, very little was known about the producer. Since then he has released the 4-track Potential EP and picked up wide support, most notably from Björk, who had Spaces co-produce the final track on her Vulnicura album.
Spaces returns with Two, the second in a trilogy of releases, hitting straight back with his unique blend of puncturing percussions and weird, compressed textures. To finish, this EP has the added bonus of a remix from Mark Fell (SND/Sensate Focus), an early supporter of Spaces' work.
With the opening track 'Make The Switch', Spaces reveals his most dancefloor-friendly cut to date. Although be warned, with its unexpected piercing distortions and glassy siren hits, this is not for a faint-hearted dancefloor. Chase Back follows up with a 4/4 groove built around a loud, cacophonous build, which crescendos to a new plateau bound to please more adventurous DJs looking for a segue tool.
On the other side 'Noon To' creates a feeling of claustrophobia, an ever-approaching drum pattern closes in on your senses then distortions make way for an eerie multi-coloured calm in the storm making this the standout song of the EP. For the final track, Mark Fell re-imagines 'Make The Switch' as an intricate plethora of percussion rolling and tumbling its way through a playful logic that is distinctive and can only be his own.
