Amsterdam-based Cubicolor’s first release of 2015, the “Magnum EP” sees them develop their warm, indie-leaning melodic sound with three outstanding cuts first heard in their recent Anjunadeep Edition mix.
Announcing themselves earlier in 2014 with the “Next Planet EP”, the mysterious act has been credited as one of the hottest acts to watch.
Title track “Magnum” is a luscious rolling juggernaut, driven by head-in-the-clouds melodies and anthemic, glowing chords. “Moments” shows off Cubicolor’s moodier side, weaving eerie melodies around a techy groove. Huge bass notes combine with snare drum blasts before an epic heads-down, hands-up breakdown paves the way for dancefloor euphoria.Slow-burning third track “All Zero” drops the tempo, as chugging percussion, arpeggiated keys and distorted vocal samples combine in ethereal fashion. Beautiful haunting strings add an elegiac touch as Cubicolor close the latest addition to their already impressive catalogue.
