sinnmusik*’s fifth chapter presents another promising talent in the form of Washington DC resident ‘Fasika’. Taking inspiration from the likes of Kerri Chandler and Eric Morillo, his debut EP ‘Warp’ is a robust concoction of potent percussion, trademark keys stabs and hefty low-end grooves.

The title track emerges slowly through cavernous ambience bringing with it a taught and powerful kick, brash hats and a crunching clap. Yawning sweeps, additive bass tones and a menacing motif build a dense and colourful mix that exemplifies Fasika’s knack for filling floors perfectly.

Circles’ gambols into a slightly more jovial groove as clipped vocal cuts and multiple synth lines dart over a varied and weighty bass line. Clever sequencing thickens and thins the mix with additive percussive lines working throughout to maintain a rich and vigorous intensity.

June Bug’ drives a long-tailed kick under a propulsive hammond riff that’s treated throughout to progress towards intelligently plotted rises and drops. Drenched in reverb, shimmering synths and textures sit behind a relentless groove that snowballs throughout.

Kidu’s Jam’ sends a wrecking ball into the collection as a rough-edged synth pattern savagely wraps around a whipping clap, eerie truncated vocals and winding string sweeps. In exemplary fashion, low-end frequencies dip in and out keeping things pinned firmly to the dance-floor.

Finally, ‘Raw’ blends together a characteristic recipe of keys stabs, deft sampling and a forceful kick. Grooving bongo flashes, glacial percussive flicks and swung rhythms bring together a cohesive collection of prime-time House grooves that showcase a promising talent in Fasika.
