Swiss-based, Jamaican producer Ezikiel returns to Cadenza for his another outing, this time dropping the ‘Tales Of Roots’ EP. With this new EP he demonstrates his flair for the musical side of club compositions, imbibing his productions with sultry atmospherics, deep emotion and organic keys and strings.

The title track ‘Tales of Roots’ is a 15-minute opus, which unravels slowly but surely, working from a soft yet persistent bassline and a hypnotic rhythm. Samples of tribal singers add a distinct human element, entrancing you with their organic vibrations. As the voices continue to sing out you’re transported to a vibrant sub- Saharan landscape, captivated by the irresistible guitar riff...

On the flip we have ‘Makha Poetry’, a more experimental workout with a variety of warped and twisted effects spluttering and wobbling away at its foundation. The jaunty yet slightly eerie low end gives this track a naughty allure, as those strange bleeps and whirrs continue to bounce in and out of the background. There’s a controlled restraint about ‘Makha Poetry’ which gives it a devastating simplicity and a very unique aesthetic.
