Rittik Wystup // Timpani EP
With his first EP in the pipeline, Wystup comes with a modern and fresh sound. „Timpani EP“ is a collection of his most recent four tracks, ranging from Deep House to Minimal. Influenced by the likes of Stimming, Plaid and Ravel, the tracks feature a depth in detail, with layers on top of layers – without sounding too overcrowded. Expect organic recordings as well as analog and digital sounds, relating to each other, conceiving an eclectic experience.
The opening track „Veronica’s Tympani“ reveals a catchy bassline and modern vocal editing, combining an elegant groove with a subtle drive. „Message from Home“ defines a broad range of textures, playfully interacting with each other, like raindrops touching the ground on a warm spring evening. Sound design clearly stands out in „Dopple Ganger“ – edited field recordings, as well as mystic vocals, create a gloomy atmosphere, with weight to microtones and detuned harmonies. The finisher, „Fraction“, rounds the EP with IDM-style percussions and fragile synthesis plateaus, radiating warmth throughout the frequency range. All synthesis elements in „Fraction“ come from the Cloud Generator, an open-source synthesiser developed by Wystup.
Give the tracks a close listen and dive into a sonic exploration which reaches beyond the standards of the four-to-the-floor formula, cascading streams of playfully but intelligently arranged elements. Don’t quiver, just cavort…
