Ben Pearce – Pomelo EP
Ben Pearce makes his welcome return to Moda Black in early 2016 in the form of his Pomelo EP. This 3 track EP see’s the Mancunian producer deliver 3 heavy, club-focused house-meets-techno cuts. The title track ‘Pomelo’ comes in two guises; version one slowly builds on textural layers, flittering arpeggios and a driving acid line, all with their sights locked on the dramatic main break, before slowly evaporating back into a bed of beats. The dub version, however, sheds the melodic components in a favour a a rawer, grittier feel.
On the flip Ben takes the pace up a level with ‘12407’, combining frantic 808 drums with ever-evolving synth stabs and flittering ethereal topline, making for a high-energy slab of emotive warehouse music.
2015 was a fulfilled year for Ben Pearce, encompassing an extensive global tour schedule, monthly radio shows on Rinse FM and his summer residency at Ants in Ibiza – all whilst working a on wealth on new original music, that will be released over the coming months.
