DANIEL TRIM – ODET EP
Daniel Trim follows up his killer “Do You Really Love What You Do” with the “Odet EP”, his third for Glasgow Underground.
Kicking off with “Asimo”, Trim shows – with this spell-binding tune – that he really is a master of the melodic rave. Like a techno version of Ten Walls “Requiem” this track has one of those baselines; a creeping, throbbing monster that will hook you and and leave the dance-floor totally locked in the groove.
“Odet” takes us somewhere completely different. It’s like a modern day version of “Last Rhythm” – one of those tunes that was made for dancing on ecstasy. It has everything you would want when you’re at an MDMA party; punchy beats, warm rolling bass and the kind of spiralling synth hooks and blissed-out chords that make you grin wide, bounce high and make silly moves.
We all love nostalgia but while almost every other producer on the planet is raping their 90s US house collection for inspiration, Trim finds his muse somewhere else entirely. “Saltwater” is an instrumental cover of the Chicane hit from ’99 and turns the Clannad sampling pop-trancer into the kind of tripped-out club record that – in the right hands – will be a total show-stopper. Huge! Just as I’m uploading this, Soundcloud has decided to disable this track so if you can’t see it, you’ll have to download the whole ep to get it! If you can see it, hurrah!. Sense has prevailed.

Alex Caslano – This is a really impressive EP with a great range of sounds and emotions – the dark, creeping bassline on ‘Asimo’, the soaring chords of ‘Odet’ and the late night tech-funk of ‘Metamorphose’ – all comes together very nicely. Classy reversion of ‘Saltwater’ too!
