Cetra EP

A 4 track leftfield/idm ep (21m 58s) — released July 9th 2012 on Hit And Hope Records

Hit and Hope present Sinistarr's first non-dnb excursion in the form of the "Cetra EP". Despite jumping tempos and styles, all 3 originals manage to remain coherent with Sinistarr's catalog. The emotive synth chords, beefed up Roland TRs and human production ethic of 90s Detroit are squeezed into the format of various current underground sounds in something altogether very unique.

At 135bpm, the title track Cetra's drawn out progressive structure nods more to a classic Rephlex cut than the majority of current club, or 'bass' music with despite sharing a tempo and similar rhythms.

Sinistarr's take on the sounds of his native Detroit has landed him releases on Goldie's seminal Metalheadz imprint and won the hearts of discerning Drum & Bass heads and general beat-lovers alike, combining the sonic qualities and raw aesthetics of Detroit techno and electro with jungle's schizo rhythms.
