from Chapter 24 Records

Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

A1. Borderline
A2. Picture
B1. Flow of Tears
B2. Flow of Tears {Ripperton Edition}

As the winter solstice approached and the fool’s journey came to a close, Chapter 24 marked its first two years of releases with a 24th EP. This symbolic offering is a vinyl plus digital package from Masaya, with an Edition by her close friend and frequent b2b DJ partner Ripperton.

Masaya’s entire life is music and this really shines through across the four cuts served up by the Swiss-Chilean artist. As boss of her own label Mina Records, she is a real underground star who has been responsible for numerous great releases over the last ten years.

‘Borderline’ kicks things off and is nine minutes of spine-tingling deep house music with haunting vocals and wispy autumnal synths. Subtle and seductive, it is a killer opener to the EP. ‘Picture’ is then just as emotive and spiritual, with tender string sweeps and rolling rubbery beats mixed in with warm finger clicks to make for a hugely atmospheric house groove. The final original is ‘Flow of Tears’, which is again cavernous and deep, its sombre chords draped over gentle drums with whispered vocals that really mark it out as an evocative listen. 

Ripperton is the long time deep house star from Switzerland who runs his own Tamed Musiq and has a fine discography, releasing on the likes of Innervisions, Maeve and more. His Edition of ‘Flow of Tears’ captures the sound of futuristic house and techno in 2016. It is more direct and driven, with corrugated drums and loose limbed percussion lulling you into his autumnal groove.
This is a fantastic EP from some of Switzerland’s finest, a fitting 24th Chapter offering four stories in sound.

Original artwork by Simon Vaeth. Also includes the second part of an original short story by Lewis Bowman.

Includes unlimited streaming of Flow of Tears EP via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
