Conrad Subs - In Heaven
DOWNLOAD 4 tracks
Hailing from Suffolk, Conrad Subs - real name Adam Krolik - has been progressively building his reputation with releases on labels including Ten Ton, Deep In The Jungle, Original Key, Sub Heavy Audio and Nuusic. After featuring on our last two compilations (5 Years of Soulvent and Winter Soul 2019), we’re pleased to announce the debut EP from the man himself.
Opener DIY Soul kicks things off with a fairly sparse intro; fuzzy pads and filtered drums give way to serious bass and a tasteful click-break. The varied percussion on display gives the track a versatile flavour and definitely aligns with its tongue-in-cheek title.
On You opens on some super catchy vocals, while the steppy groove lays down nothing but funk. The wide synths and punchy percussive elements throughout create a hypnotic quality that is a welcome element to the EP.
Title track In Heaven is nothing short of angelic, blissful liquid. Bouncy pads, effect laden vocals and raspy drums collide with thrumming bass and swelling, dreamlike bursts of atmosphere in lush duality.
Awareness rounds out this well balanced EP with a very minimal affair, complete with a sense of dystopian future thanks to the eerie vocal sample and foreboding intro. Lurching bass and seemingly screaming synths meet under the light of tight percussion, resulting in a dark, subby roller that will definitely conjure bass faces.
Crash landing onto all good music stores and streaming services this May day, the divine In Heaven EP from Conrad Subs.
