Chris Carrier
ʻThrashin EPʼ
Act Natural Records

Release dates : Vinyl 02/04/2011 – Digital 09/04/2011
The legendary Chris Carrier delivers the ʻThrashinʼ EP for Londonʼs Act Natural this April – four tracks of typically accomplished house from the French stalwart.

Adult Only, Bass Culture, Robsoul, Freak N Chic and Hudd Traxx are just a handful of the labels Carrier has graced over the years and he rarely puts a foot wrong with his distinctive take on house.

Title track, ʻThrashinʼ, is built around a chunky rolling drum groove and trippy resonant synth line. Sonically the track carries a lot of weight with a busy structure yet each element remains neatly tucked away within its frequency range – a testament to the Parisian producers knowledge and experience.

The ʻDeep Mixʼ of ʻThrashinʼ is exactly that, a venture into the lighter end of the spectrum. Making the original a little less raw and focused on soft tones, subtle use of delay and dreamy pads.
ʻAll Nighterʼ steams in full throttle from the beginning with a saw wave bass line pulsing alongside a natural kick drum as the driving force. An airy atmospheric background builds the track to the key point where an arpeggaited synth takes control.

ʻMighty Gripʼ begins with an ever-evolving drum pattern, raw heavily reverberated claps and snares creep in sporadically giving the track a natural swing. The use of a classic 808 cowbell and acid bass line much like in ʻAll Nighterʼ gives the track a raw, 90ʼs feel.

Chris Carrierʼs ʻThrashinʼ EP is out on April 2nd 2012 followed by the digital release April 9th.
