Tidal & Moot point

Seven years ago the Irish producer Brendan Gregoriy published Umbrella on Ovum. It was 2007 and until then Chymera had released on smaller labels like Messotinto or Supreme. But if you get the Josh Wink’s label, you get the mainstream of the underground and you receive proposals from other labels. Following this, he was publishing on Delsin, NRK, Connaisseur, Cocoon, Komplex de Deep, Dirt Crew and recently even by Kompakt.

Now Ovum Recordings turns 20 and Chymera returns to celebrate. He presents two tracks, one for each side of the vinyl. Tidal is a solid theme with strong base, and melodies of classic synths. Brendan is showing layers of melody in an exquisite and elegant way. It sounds organic, sounds real. With Moot Point, Chymera offers a melodic journey of about 12 minutes that reminds us of the Alexander Kowalski’s great productions. Always treated with the class that characterizes him, this second track also features percussion focused on raising arms, and an acid touch.
