Kaltblume – Hardfloor Brutus EP (Ft. OPOSITION & CYNKT)
Kaltblume’s introduction to the label is a banger; 5 absolute face melters destined to cause havoc in your ear.
1. Kaltblume – Pleasurable Pain
2. Kaltblume – Hardfloor Brutus
3. Kaltblume – Transhuman Era
4. Kaltblume – Hardfloor Brutus (OPOSITION Remix)
5. Kaltblume – Transhuman Era (CYNKT Remix)
Coming in hard with the big kicks, surrounded by moving percussions and a female touch. In Pleasurable Pain a lot is happening, though concisely to hit it into the groove.
Title track Hardfloor Brutus’ kick and screeches remind of the earlier days of hardstyle, up-front kicks where the bass sits nicely behind the delay of the kick.
Fast percussion seems to be the recipe in a lot of Kaltblume’s track, but in Transhuman Era this is joined by a utopian synth spreading gusts of melancholy.
OPOSITION as a newcomer to the label puts in the dirty work for an even dirtier remix; face slap techno on the open hi-hat. An appetizing bass synth adds the missing touch.
More feel is added in CYNKT’s remix for Kaltblume. An extra layer unfolds a new chapter of desolation in Transhuman Era.
