Something Chilly In The Air: Skip Club Orchestra’s Amorphous Creatures EP

Skip Club Orchestra, the moniker adopted by the founder of Japanese juke imprint Dubliminal Bounce, creates something chilly on the just-released Amorphous Creatures EP. Which isn’t to discount the set’s ability to really get moving — from the first song, the bulk of this EP has moments where the beat overtakes everything (and on “A.C. 02,” every second is that way), and Skip Club Orchestra creates really energetic dance songs. But the moments surrounding those bursts feel icy and, at times, foreboding. The machine beats, sure, but also the synths and, on “A.C. (3),” the way everything mixes together into a lurching menace. Get it here, or listen below.
