Long time readers of electronic rumors will know that hands-down one of our favourite producers is the enigmatic Cinnamon Chasers. Spanning Dreamwave, Nu-Disco, SynthWave, Italo and House, Cinnamon Chasers has spent the last five years putting out some of the most consistently impressive records in electronic music. Here is a man who effortlessly juggles emotion and groove to deliver track that both compel you to dance and give you goosebumps. He’s gearing up to release his new EP, Time.Body.Tears, next week and we can give you an sneaky listen to some of it right here.
Time.Body.Tears serves up five tracks, each of them so washed in retro synth Boogie that it’s hard to pick favourites. The EP kicks off with Flight, an undulating tune that rolls along on thick 80s synth bass and a digital sax hook straight out of Jermaine Stewart’s We Don’t Have To Take Our Clothes Off. It’s totally infectious and if anything is going to draw you into the rest of the EP it’s Flight. Body is up next and brings the release a dose off moody dancefloor vibes. A deep slice of piano led House, Body is washed in a hint of mid-90s Orbital-esque euphoria in it’s punchy bass, vocal instrumentation and dubby piano that makes for a pleasingly nostalgic experience. Just in case Body got you too Chilled, it’s swiftly followed by the high-octane Electro-Italo-Cosmic-Rock of Tears. Tears produces the EP’s energetic mid-point rocking an almost perfect combination of Italo bass, breakin’ beats, rousing chords and just the tiniest hint of Ultravox’s Midge Ure. Time brings us, stylistically, back from the 80s to the 90s once more with a slice of classic sounding dance, once again hypnotising us with a big piano hook on this slo-House Jam. Proving the EP’s nod to Tropical Disco, Time has one foot on the beach, the other in distant galaxies. The EP closes on Friends, a massive emotional finale, mixing up Cinnamon Chasers’ resonant chords with a layer of gritty, dirty Disco-House, all chainsaw synths and twisted vocoding. Leaving you with a truck load of Funk, Friends is pure heavyweight French style Nu-Disco with an 80s Electro-Soul heart. Cinnamon Chasers haven’t let us down yet, continuing to be one of the best in the game. Naturally, this is a highly recommended release.
