Premiere : M.F.S: Observatory – R1

Taken from “”Observatory R” EP out October 29 on Observatory Music
Italian pair M.F.S: Observatory mark their return to to their Observatory Music label
Anyone who has followed M.F.S: Observatory to date will know that theirs is a meticulous way of working that’s become increasingly hard to pigeonhole. From dreamy house to upfront techno, the Italian duo are beginning to earn a reputation outside of their native country for their endlessly eclectic tropes, a manner of working that’s meant their music has been signed to the likes of Roush, W&O Street Tracks, Skint Records (where they remixed Maya Jane Coles), Alphahouse and a slew of other well-respected imprints. For their latest, they turn their attention back to their own Observatory R label — and do so in quite emphatic fashion.

The release kicks off on a melancholy note courtesy of the sounds of R1. A beautiful, piano led opening soon paves the way for a more uptempo house cut, but if you’re looking for a canny track with which to close your sets with, then this one is sure to provide you with more than enough ammo. A truly memorable and eclectic cut of the type we rarely encounter these days, this is house music with real vigour and heart.

Preview EP

The Robert Hood-esque strands of ‘R2’ see the intensity ramped up a fair notch, before ‘R3’, complete with its lashings of white noise and firm, heads-down aesthetic, introduces us to the pair’s more techno-focused side. ‘R4’ then goes all out in search of kicks, with its dizzying, kitchen sink approach the sort of head-melting track that’s been made with nothing but the night’s peak hours in mind. Culminating the heavyweight package is the strands of ‘R5’, a track that builds and builds and eventually explodes amongst a wave of colour. A truly banging track that perfectly encapsulates the duo’s knack for merging different sounds, this is M.F.S: Observatory at their potent best. If you’ve not encountered this duo before, consider this one a more than fitting introduction. And even if you have, this one is nonetheless a fine introduction to a discography littered with high points
