Pieces Of A Pensive State Of Mind

Crossin' The Madmoon EP

The four tracks on this EP are much like Frank de Groodt’s other work, that is: dark and minimal, but this time much more centered around fast 909 rhythms.

Pieces Of A Pensive State Of Mind

Don't look for the funk too much on this release: the title track like Crossin' the Madmoon can easily be described as menacing. If the sinister voice sample won't give you the creeps, the eery sounds and riddims will.
While the entire EP is penetrated with this dark, minimal and industrial approach, Draxin’ is pumped up with energy.
Simple Motion
was a favorite with quite a few DJs back in the days to start their set with, because the bassdrum suddenly gets twice as fat at the 1:20 mark. Imagine the people screaming on the dance floor!
In Between closes off this release with some bubbly bleeps and beats and a slightly desolate atmosphere.

To sum it up: more than 30 minutes of tight 909 rhythms that definitely will rock da floor.
