“1238” is taken from the “Captivate EP” by Adred on Metalheadz Platinum. This track is a collaboration with Headz and Dispatch label manager Ant TC1.
It opens like a techno version of “Music Box” with its undulating drums and vocal loop. Steadily building, cinematic strings begin to shine and a delicate arpeggio starts to glisten over the tracks deep growling bassline creating a balanced and warm roller.
Elsewhere on the EP the late great Marcus Intalex remixes the title track “Captivate” which features the emotion-drenched vocals of Robert Manos reflecting on relationships and decision making. The funky two step cut “Happnast” is another collaboration, this time with fellow New Yorker Dave Owen.
The “Captivate EP” by Adred is available now from the Metalheadz Bandcamp store.
