Dublin-based label Major Problems adds to its ever-growing and constantly intriguing back catalogue of releases with the latest 12″, courtesy of Melly, AKA DJ Aprés Ski (who coincidentally delivered another disc of tunes for the Irish imprint back in 2016). Having only previously put out music on If-Only favourites Where To Now? and Jheri Tracks, The Beds is a worthy Major Problems debut for the producer’s alternative alias.
Titular B1 cut ‘The Beds’ starts off as a relatively unassuming, hypnotic number, its idiosyncratic percussion and distinct rhythm carving out a nice sonic niche for listeners to inhabit. It soon becomes apparent that its trance-inducing, ephemeral quality is here to stay, marching listeners off to another realm with a unique blend of ambient, hybrid house and techno, and indeed highly nuanced incarnation of electronic music. Do yourself a solid and check it out here.
The Beds is out now on Major Problems – pre-order direct from the label.
