A Glimpse Over The Mountain
Presenting “Sanreizan”; Haquin & Mettakin’s collaborative 4-track EP for Outtallectuals label, based around cinematic nature-inspired and mindful trip-hop / electronica / downtempo music.
The release combines the Artists’ multi-layered, organic beats with rich, live instrumental recordings which opens with a short ‘Prelude’ conveying the mesmerising feeling felt when first laying eyes upon the awe-inspiring peak of Mount Fuji. With ‘A Glimpse Over The Mountain’ Haquin takes us on an upwards expedition in the Far East with epic builds and hard hitting drops. The two’s unique production styles are brought together in the EP’s penultimate track ‘Tonkori’, which makes use of meticulously selected oriental samples blended with live piano recordings. Mettakin’s mind bending production ends the EP with his solo track ‘Halcyon’.
The minute attention to detail and complex cross rhythms captivate ones ear throughout.
