REVIEW: Budakid - Lost For A Reason EP out on Subjekt recordings

Bundling three tunes worth an infinite amount of replays into his 'Lost EP', Budakid turns to Subjekt Recordings. As he poured his heart and soul into the groovy percussion rhythms and spellbinding pads and textures, you can be sure of the fact that any of these singles is worth your while. Get excited, because 'Lost', 'Reason' feat. Lotte Slangen, and 'Gates To Heaven' will have you craving more.

 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]Budakid provides three very strong dark and mysterious productions that will please the eclectic electronic house ears who search for music that pushes boundaries and changes perceptions. Lost is a minimal deep house track with vintage synths and cool haunting voices along with dark cold industrial sounds while the breakdown is  warmer with melancholic themes and interesting melody distortion effect that makes you think that something is maybe wrong but actually this one of the main elements that makes this record so unique. Reason featuring. Lotte Slangen starts with long atmospheric intro with Lotte dark and distant vocal. The beat is minimal and relaxing perfect for chill out / Cafe Del Mar style compilations. Great percussion and  natural sounds are used to add to the cinematic result. Lastly Gates of Heaven is an excellent deep house beauty that applies a classic Vangelis synth riff that drive the track forward by performing classic music style melodies. With wide variety of influences and move towards experimentation  this EP will please if you want to go forward and move away from tracks that state the obvious. #PureGold Love It[/content]
