An On Bast No Cage ep

No Cage ep review on Muno of Poland.

A year has passed since the release of the excellent EPs "Upon The Dew Drops" (supported by Luciano among others) so it's time to show the world the latest work by An On Bast - "No Cage EP".

"No Cage" consists of 3 tracks maintained in the tech-house style, in which An On Bast is not afraid to experiment, creating interesting and unique sound collages. She admits that the EP is geared towards a good groove, while dodging the music rules.

"DumDum" slowly introduces us to the world of colorful and joyful sounds. Anna skillfully combines expressive synths with minimal and clicky beat and a little bit ethnic vocal samples. The song gently hypnotizes and by great design nothing detracts its receiving.

Time for announced experiments! "Saxhopper" bursts of the original solutions and unconventional samples, such as a storm of applause in the middle of the track. The leitmotif here is a happy saxophone playing. Blend of these sounds reminiscent of crazy style of Noze or Parisian trio dOP. "Cat The King" confirms our belief that inspiration can be made of French artists. Here attention is drawn to a surprising melody places deliberately losing sync with the beats, juxtaposed with a deeper groove.
