Over their first two releases, S.O.N.S doubled down on a raw patchwork of 90’s rave genres, veering from ambient techno to acid to steely electro. Whichever way they turn, there’s a grit and explosive energy that makes each outing essential.
For their third trick, S.O.N.S takes on trance with delirious results. The three-minute build is masterly, combining feather-soft pads and a reedy synthline, eventually boiling down into a low, throaty acid line. They could stop there and leave us satisfied but S.O.N.S keeps piling on the goods, with a supple breakbeat and a robust bassline that climbs ever higher.
