With the much anticipated unveiling of the inaugural Vivrant release, the ‘Taiga’ EP, Jeremy gives the public a sneak peak into his sonic treasure chest. Filled to the brim with a seemingly infinite number of unreleased records his music has, at last, found a place to call home.
Conceptually resembling a mini-album, the EP is made up of a total of four tracks with the first and last offerings, ‘Taiga’ and ‘Falls’, taking on the roles of set opener and closer. Played for the first time in Jeremy’s Group Therapy Radio guest mix, ‘Taiga’ is dark, thumping and hypnotic, while ‘Falls’, a new never before heard creation, is soft, dreamy and uplifting.
Second and third on the EP is ‘Pinkerton’ and ‘Roots’. While being vastly different, they have a common denominator in both being sophisticated, sure-fire peak time weapons. ‘Roots’ is energetic and soaring, while ‘Pinkerton’, made famous by way of a certain BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix from earlier this year, has an infectious, trembling trademark Olander lead and a sawtooth bass-line your ancestors will feel.
In a time when the artform of curating an EP is on life support due to the rise of the more easily digestible and chart friendly single format, the ‘Taiga’ EP restores faith. Unlike anything you’ll hear anywhere else, it paints a positive picture of the future of innovative dance music.
