Almost exactly 3 years after his first release on Files Rec., Bristol-based, Australia-born electronic producer Galtier delights us again with his newest EP Forced System. Included alongside 2 originals is a remix by Russian up-and-coming artist AN System.
The club-oriented pieces, although driven and effective, provide the listener with fresh and organic sound design and experimental notes. Set in a technical, aery and industrial atmosphere, "Forced System" and "Balms" show internal contrast by exhibiting the tribal sonorities and rhythms that Galtier exploits with delightful taste on a regular basis in his work. AN System's remix of "Forced System" takes a slightly more experimental approach with repeating vocals, hefty reverberating synths and patterns reminiscent of Baile Funk, reworked and adapted in his very personal style.
