Deepwibe Underground begins the summer season by welcoming Fazlen back to the label for a new EP. The Sri Lankan artist first appeared on the Russian imprint in September of 2018 with his well received ‘Friday 6PM’ EP, before following that up with ‘Beautiful Things’ in April of this year. Also laying claim to releases on Baikonur Recordings, Lick My Lips Records and Plusquam Chillout, Fazlen now lands back on Deepwibe Underground with ‘Arrival’.

Fazlen’s uncanny knack for melding progressive house and techno was noted through his first productions. It’s an ethos he continues to explore across this four track collection, beginning with the title selection ‘Arrival’. Deep and driving, it’s meaty low end is warm and wonderfully contoured, while grainy textures, trippy electronics and detailed percussion fill in the framework. Fragmented melodies build a brooding storyboard before transitioning into the centrepiece, where cinematic tension is at a premium. As the interlude evolves timely modulation continues to elevate the mood, before a subtle rhythmic shift ushers in a driving conclusion. The journey continues with ‘Celestial’ which comes in a touch more emotive and equally compelling. Warm and spacious, it’s roomy framework develops methodically as wispy effects and vocal overlays converge in a perfect sonic marriage. Otherworldly in nature, rhythmic tension rises to palpable levels as the second act unfolds, before breaking down into a celestial centrepiece which not only adds depth but perfectly sets up a buoyant finale.

The EP’s halfway point is marked with the dark themes of ‘Valar’. It’s meaty groove is rough and rugged, setting the perfect foundation for a sequence of obscure motifs and muted tonal design. Quirky hooks and rolling rhythms advance the narrative into esoteric territory, before astral meanderings and devilish effects provide an intense conclusion. The fourth and final selection ‘Into The Citadel’ rounds the release out with a uniquely reflective mood. Conveying moments of deep yet profound emotion, it’s subterranean groove, cosmic creativities and frayed electronics add both musicality and drama. It’s a narrative which continues to evolve during a trippy break, before melting down to a delicate sonic sizzle and smoothly transferring energy into a hazy harmonic conclusion. Another inspired creation from Fazlen which rounds out a welcome return to Deepwibe Underground for the Sri Lankan artist, who by all accounts looks to capture the imagination of even the most discerning electronic music fans with this collection.
