It seems like an eternity since we heard anything from REID. It’s certainly been a while, far too long an absence in fact, but the Cork producer (he’s from there, he’s not a maker of cork) is set return with a new EP, Fractures.
The six-track Fractures EP will be released on August 11 through M:UK and will feature contributions from Slow Skies, Woman’s Hour and Sam Mason. Ahead of the EP’s forthcoming release REID has presented us with two tasters of what’s to come in the shape of ‘Singapore’ & ‘Fractures (Feat. Slow Skies)’. ‘Singapore’ is an instrumental affair with a nocturnal, late-night vibe to it as gentle bass hovers above some punchy piano chords and quite snappy percussion. While the aptly titled ‘Fractures’ is moodier, sounding and feeling delicate enough as though it could crumble at any moment, as it flirts with directing you to the dancefloor before shrinking back to skirt around the edges. Always one for the ghostly, dusky yet vivid cuts, REID has provided two superb tracks, what we’ve come to expect from the Irish producer and what has made him an exciting proposition. It’s good to have you back Sir.
