Fred P’s fresh ‘Perpetual Sound’ imprint continues its journey with ‘Lush Culture’, a split EP that finds the label head alongside like-minded soul, Deetron. ‘Liquidity’ opens the EP: a slowly-bubbling, elegantly shuffling house trip that pairs liquid, deep chords with irresistible percussion. ‘Lush Culture’ finds the New York-Berlin producer in his most sophisticated mode, channelling pure early-hours dance floor ambience via a rolling, charismatic beat amid a subtle but intoxicating build. Handing the reins to Deetron for the flip, ‘Sweet Science’ sees the Swiss maestro punctures the weightless mood with a heavier, stepping bassline that blossoms into a blissful analogue state that rolls on and on, mastering sublime cosmic tension with each powerful breakdown. Fred P returns to conclude the release with ‘119 Black Key Experiment’, a sparkling, ambient sign-off that explores the retro-futurist influence at the beating heart of the label’s aesthetic.
