The 184th release on Suffused Music welcomes Claque Choc back to the label for their debut EP. Also known as Angelo D’Antonio and Paride Manzi the Italian born Switzerland based duo is making their second appearance on the label. A contribution to the 'Initializing, Vol. 9' collection proved to be an amazing debut and now amidst much anticipation Claque Choc returns to Suffused Music for their debut EP.
Spread out over three tracks the Italian duo explores varied house blueprints beginning with 'Mon Bercceau'. A funky groove sets the piece in motion as hypnotic motifs and grating electronics add a fluid swing. Timely effects bring an air of mystery before a tight roll initiates the main break. Set against an indistinct but utterly haunting choir it evokes a serene state before a calculated build unleashes some gnarly hooks for a stellar finale.
The EP's second selection 'Noir Zombie' dazzles with its melodious groove and quirky hooks. A fluid storyboard with clever transitions and a smooth rhythmic core makes for a stellar first act. The main break pushes the intensity a notch higher though, clocking in at just over a minute, with a classy build revealing a timeless pay off that is guaranteed to light up your dance floor.
The release concludes with the melancholic 'La Nuit Infinie'. An emotive piece with distinctive design and reflective tones. Smooth chord changes and raspy electronics play off each other in unique contrast, making for a smooth yet exhilarating seven minute journey. A fitting end to a stunning collection of music from Claque Choc and another great addition to the Suffused Music discography. Don't miss it.
