Undoubtedly a prolific artist at various points in his career, Arjen Schat revives his Ohrwert alias for its first EP in three years with the first release for Local Traffic. The dubby tendencies of this particular project shine through in abundance on "Tornus" with its voluminous reverbs and shimmering delays, all guided by a steady-ticking set of drums. Throughout the EP the production values are impeccable, perhaps shining through the most on the blissful closer "Weallian" which layers up melancholic synth tones into a beautiful configuration and rounding it out with an instinctive bassline for a heart-melting end result.
