Applescal & Ryan Davis – ‘Creatures’ [EP stream]
and Ryan Davis
are two Berlin-based producers who get all deep and dreamy when it comes to dance music – just check Applescal's fourth album 'Dreaming In Key'
, released earlier this year, for proof. He's only 22, but Applescal – aka Pascal Terstappen – has already put out four full-length releases, and this latest outing with Davis is an apt metaphor for his wider prolific attitude; unable to settle for just one idea, the EP presents three different versions of one track. Creatures
is a deep, pulsating number that lulls and thrusts between nochalant daydreaming and a dancefloor-reaching surge. Alongside it are a crackling, impossibly warped "ambient mix" and a thrashing "dark edit" that take the sounds to the very limit of what they originally were.
