Having recently appeared on parent label Silk Digital with their "Everest / Genesis" EP, the duo Barzek & Jethimself (Australia and USA) are ready to launch their first chillout EP. Silk Sofa is proud to present "Erhu", which features three brilliant downtempo pieces.
The title track starts off with calm rhodes melodies, which are soon accompanied by subtle piano lines and a frisky breakbeat. The lush and mysterious sounds of the Erhu-instrument, a Chinese two-stringed bowed instrument, emerge later, and numerous background layers support the theme melody brilliantly. The second song, "Drifting Out", which starts out with an incredibly calm and soothing atmosphere, consists of a gorgeous piano line and subtle rhodes stabs in the background. A unique guitar riff emerges later, and in the break a number of beautiful melodies are showcased. The final track, "Dewdrops", quickly establishes a smooth soundscape, once again with a lovely piano line and well-structured breakbeat. A number of pad lines sit perfectly on top of the lush bassline. The piano line is varied in the break, and the song continues with many unique sound effects and synth additions, thereby enhancing the texture.
