A label made of three key players, Berlin’s SOLIDE recently expanded their family, welcoming fond musical acquaintances into the fold with a various artists compilation; Solid(e) State Vol 1. Resuming form, one third of the core, Kalyma, returns for another solo expedition to the club with his ‘Tanger Night Drive’ EP. Berlin-via-Gran Canaria, Kalyma’s percussive style of club music wields a certain charm. Whisking us away on a pacey drive through the Morrocan night, Kalyma rolls through the deep mysticism of Tangier in the title track; ‘Tanger Night Drive’. A pulsing kick and punky bass, meet the melodious tune of steel pan chimes and whispering crickets in the low-line. Tom rhythms and arpeggios intensify, encapsulating the racey, blissful energy of a night in Tangier. Making a complete U-turn, synth-led ‘Arlequin’ brings real rave emotion. Vibey percussion underpins the experience, whilst a distinct air of grit comes through in dubbed out, euphoric keys. Heart strings tug, souls stir, a second mesmeric piano line seals the deal; all elements combine and compliment. Closing out the journey, Ancient Egyptian devotee and Budapest native, Sobek comes through on the remix adding his distinguished touch to ‘Tanger Night Drive’; subverting the flow and capitalising on the toms, before adding his own depth with moody, semi-ominous twinges. Unveiling a staunch knowledge and passion for club music, Kalyma’s ‘Tanger Night Drive’ EP promises to steer dancefloors in new, unimagined directions.
