For the 89th release on Darin Epsilon’s Perspectives Digital, Barcelona based duo Far Distance returns to the label with a debut EP of technique and talent in “Hyperspace / Stardust”.
A production duo with a rich musical heritage, Peio Rios & Danny Murphy have courted considerable success on esteemed labels such as Toolroom, Highway Records, and Mercurial Tones, supported by an elite list that includes Solomun, Carl Cox, Joris Voorn, Nora En Pure, and Richie Hawtin. Deciding to cement their partnership with the Far Distance moniker, the Spanish pair created a data stream between their homes in Bilbao and Barcelona with impressive results after a debut on their own label Rocked in 2014. Their collaboration with Stefan Addo titled “Worm Hole” in April 2021 marked the pair’s first appearance on Perspectives.
Now making their full EP debut on the imprint, “Hyperspace” opens with a chest-thumping kick and grooved bassline, while reverb-drenched synth lines and a glorious syncopated arpeggio give the aural impression of deep space. An earworm motif soon makes its presence felt as white noise effects and swirling soundscapes swim across the stereo spectrum with ease. Building to a powerful crescendo at the breakdown, the rhythmic foundation returns in the second half providing gravitas once more.
“Stardust” continues the melodic storytelling of its partner track as a running bassline and driving beat create a framework for a shimmering motif to filter in and out of sonic range. Evolving with ease, spine-tingling chord changes and club-friendly snare rolls create a powerful sonic force that is sure to find favor with leading A-list DJs across the summer festival circuit.
Rauschhaus needs little introduction to the underground dance faithful with his immaculate production credentials and 24-carat portfolio. Over a decade spent honing his sound, the German artist has 200+ credits to his name for some of the finest modern imprints that include Stil Vor Talent, Einmusika, Parquet Recordings, and Hernan Cattaneo’s Sudbeat Music. A veteran of the club circuit in his Kiel hometown and beyond, Rauschhaus has been hosting his own nights in the city for several years, while performances behind the decks in Moscow, Johannesburg, and Zurich illustrate his wider global appeal.
Returning to Perspectives Digital after last year’s outstanding remix of “Rome” by Juan Pablo Torrez, the Rauschhaus interpretation of “Hyperspace” is a sublime offering that revels in trademark melodic flair, as echoes of the Far Distance original resonate through the 7 minute piece. Before long, rippling new motifs from the Rauschhaus production arsenal cascade atop driving rhythmic force and simple offbeat percussion. Hitting its stride in the second half with emotive chord changes and mirrored bassline movement, the result is a powerful remix full of flair and impressive maturity.
