Heerhorst – Crescendo [ICONYC]

7 min read

The latest release from John Johnson's ICONYC welcomes Heerhorst back to the label for a new EP. The German artist notched past successes on the US imprint in collaboration with follow countryman Aves Volare, in addition to a long list of solo highlights on BeatFreak Recordings, Octopus Records, Stil Vor Talent and Tronic. Now presenting his first solo project for ICONYC, Heerhorst lands back on the label with 'Crescendo' alongside a remix from SPNYRD.

Beginning with the title selection ‘Crescendo’ Heerhorst explores stripped back, melodic minimalism. Anchored by a punchy groove, charged rhythms and devilish sonics, it's an energetic beginning. A touch foreboding at times the narrative eventually opens up with tightly wound arps and timely modulation, the latter of which eventually initiates an impactful break. Here the main theme rises back to prominence for moments of effervescent euphoria, before tastefully segueing into a classy drop and suitably astral finale. The companion piece 'Ganon' follows suit a fuller, rolling groove and warmer design profile. Fragmented arps begin to tease the senses as nostalgic chord changes reshape the mood on the low end. The main motif gradually gets filled in across the first act, before a buzzing break ups the tension just enough to spark a great dance floor moment.

The release concludes with SPNYRD making his label debut and providing the lone interpretation of 'Crescendo'. The German artist first appeared on the melodic techno underground in July of last year with a release on KDK Music. December then yielded a well received remix for RWAC's 'Waves of Danube' which further established the Hamburg resident as a rising talent. Now embarking on the most anticipated project of his career, SPNYRD steps up to ICONYC with a powerful rendition of 'Crescendo'. Setting the piece in motion, a foundation of tight beats, pulsating bass and intricate percussion converge for a wall of momentous energy. The main arp gets utilized beautifully, complementing the buzzing foundation, while piercing stabs steal the air at timely moments. Smooth key changes, lively chord stabs and subtle modulation continue to elevate mood, perfectly setting up a well-crafted break, before melting down into a dynamic final act. An inspired remix from SPNYRD which makes for a memorable ICONYC debut, while Heerhorst's return leaves him sitting as perhaps one of the rosters most unique talents. Highly recommended.
