Less Music release this EP from highly regarded Canadian producer Egyptrixx, featuring collaborations with indie outfit Ohbijou and visual artists Datdatdat and Seripop. The two track EP has been pressed up on limited 10? vinyl, with Montreal-based design collective Seripop providing the delectable artwork. A-Side track "Old Black" is a cover of drone pioneers Earth, with Egyptrixx taking the glacial guitars and mournful cello of the original and dousing it in an altogether denser, more electronic sheen. Ohbijou adds some vocal layers, and we recommend you check the woozy accompanying video directed by Berlin-based studio Datdatdat (who also provided the clip for Egyptrixx's "Start from the Beginning"). On the flip, "Hiawath" is initially a more raucous affair, with tearing synths and clipped beats, before it drops back into a deeply atmospheric, ethereal outro. Recommended.
