Here to kick off spooky season, 28MM’s Extrasensory EP on indie label Drip Drop Records delivers a trifecta of melodies to both haunt and soothe the soul. In an era where the genre is becoming obsolete, Extrasensory is built on a plethora of dark techno, minimal, and psy-blends, all while occurring in a space uniquely its own.
Starting off on the right foot, “Juno” is definitely the calm before the storm. Recalling a deep, almost jungle vibe, we are introduced early to the minimal tech and psytrance tone that the entire EP showcases. Begging of what is yet to come, cleverly procured high hats and drums give way to gradual and echoing builds that lure in a false sense of security. Not meant to provoke confusion, 28MM does not seek to disturb, but instead to question our perceptions of reality.
Following up with a fresh collab featuring FlipsticK, “There” sets a cinematic scene. Leaning more towards tech-house stylings, the driving progressive nature of the track keeps up with the eerie energy 28MM thrives in. The auditory flavors of each artist as individuals complement each other in a way that leaves us only wanting more.
And with that, the stage is set for a title track that comes in with a vengeance, and does not disappoint. Locked and loaded, “Extrasensory” is heavier on the synths, with haunting melodies familiar throughout the EP. Low-lying horns summon a bassline that creeps in, takes over, and takes you to the next level of this game. Like a wrong turn realized too late, in a moment all safety is stripped and the only certainty is the darkness that still lies ahead.
Gear up for a wild ride and set your speakers to stun, because 28MM’s Extrasensory EP is has arrived to amp up your auditory senses into overdrive.
