Leeks has remixed Max Cooper for Traum already, but we have always considered him a Trapez artist.
He has a cool techno attitude with a swing like programming and odd sounds.
We love his way of experimenting with sounds, some are quite edgy others are electronic sounding and not necessarily pleasing sounds as we get them in nearly every production these days. “Qwerty” for example does not subdue to the daily routine of “today's techno” but moves upright and proudly. Ever listened to Jeff Mills? You will then understand a bit about what is going on here.
“Not So Late” opens with an obscure electronic sound but then has a crowd pleasing big housy bassline drop in. A phenomena of British house, we dearly love. Leeks moves in the direction of early Blake Baxter cool piano chords with this track, somehow conveying a feeling of anxiety as if walking narrow streets at midnight!
“Adhesive” is a bit of a Dadaistic track... it's cool rhythm production makes it the most advanced on this EP.
This track is a real trax, quirky and only for the wicked... with a bit of a non-sense sequency running through it... we love that... getting a bit of humour into the dry dance world.
The last track on the EP is a bassline driver, with percussive programming that is very much in tune with modern techno trax that generate motion, but stay out of “stunts” and keep things cool and also kind of freaky sounding.
