Banoffee Pies Records drop their 12th release in the original series with a solo EP from New York based Tristan Arp. With a string of intricate music on the likes of Human Pitch and a recent LP entitled ?Suggested Forms?, which offers a wider exploration into his work, Tristan?s passion for sound design echoes in this record.

All four tracks offer an environment somewhere between a feeling and a dancefloor with obscure influences in polyrhythmic drum patterns and a clear combination of digital and analogue processing. ?Swept Thru? opens proceedings with a spiral of rhythms and heavy percussion leaping in energy throughout, before the spooked out Vox takes control on ?Oblique House? with deeper movements in a haunted club tune. The B side opens with the title track ?Slip? in a powerful whirlwind arrangement of sub bending sounds before the final colour is added to the palette in ?Circling Music'' with emotive jingles in a more retained and patient mood.

You can hear Tristan's other work within the Asa Tone project – a trio group well worth the trip, offering a deep variety of works exploring field recordings taken and formulated in Indonesia beneath a tree canopy deep in the jungle. This same energy and mood spills into this release. Music for feeling. Much love BP x
