Argentinian based 04LM makes a welcome return to Soma after a short hiatus with the thumping, yet emotive, Atichgate EP. Things may have been quiet on the production front but that has only strengthened the resolve of 04LMs music as he wields these 3 new tracks with utmost supremacy.
Atich opens the EP as 04LM delves into the Deep Techno spectrum with perfectly worked subby grooves, glistening, tight percussive elements and straight up haunting pads. Atichgate ramps up the pressure a little more as elastic grooves ride across a harder set low end, yet 04LM gives depth with his subtle atmospheres. Afterbye closes out the EP on a more hypnotic tip as circling percussion, swirls round a sea sub aquatic bleeps. Certainly one for those after hours moments.
A subtle, beautiful EP, 04LM has certainly crafted himself a fine sound and approach to electronic music.
