Bordland - Bordland – Home EP
The Bristol-based artist Bordland epitomizes his Dimentique label as a producer filled with surprises and a ear to the eclectic. Unafraid at playing with genres, both Bordland and Dimentique have revealed a distinctive catalog held together within the rein of thoughtful deep house. The new Home EP offers three expressive tracks from Bordland, each presenting a lush, dreamily produced sound. “Home” is filled with spacey atmospheric synths and pulsing pads over the direct rhythms, creating a lovely, emotional vibe. “Switch It” also features Bordland’s filtered, warm chords, this time accompanied by a more traditional house rhythm track and a hint of a ‘lounge’ style. “Finale”, which was previewed early last year but is only now fully realized, applies the aesthetics of the EP to a gentle, slo-mo ‘dubstep’ feel. There’s a skillful use of tension, as the sound rises to subtle blasts of synths and rhythm punches. Bordland’s Home EP succeeds in transmitting an exquisite message to the dance floor.
