After last year’s well received album 'The Phoenix', King Britt returns under his Fhloston Paradigm moniker for the first in a series of 'Cosmosis' EPs. 'Cosmosis Vol 1' is three spacey perfumed hardware workouts of the kind that Fhloston Paradigm built his name on.
The EP starts with 'Sonic Six', matching bumping drum machine rhythms with gurgling bleeps, and mournful strings building the emotion through the noise.
The second track is the slowly evolving ambience of ‘Faith’, which builds up into radiant, shimmering clouds of sound before a bass line drops midway, grounding the track melodically and switching the emotion from ecstatic to bittersweet.
The EP closes with ‘Past’, where broken sounds are dragged over a warping piano line, and a flickering static melody engulfs the track as the noise dies out. ‘Cosmosis Vol 2’ will follow early in 2016 …
