Banke returns to Token.
The Danish producer debuted on the label in 2018 with Totem - an EP of detailed, low-slung productions that highlighted the artist's keen ear for moody, undulating sequences & slick production techniques.
On his return, Banke ups the ante - increasing the tempo moderately and where previous work focused on inviting dance-floor hypnosis, Facelift makes classy peak time propulsion the order of the day.
The work maintains many of the sonic motifs associated with the Dane's production: firm, buoyant low end drives the music, working neatly in tandem with reduced percussive accents and more exposed, crystalline sequences that lift the recordings and offer new, expressive tones to the producer's growing discography.
In many ways lead track Facelift does what it says on the tin, and offers up the most intense experience on the EP. In equal parts as dense and moody as it is exhilarating and uplifting, the track is a fine example of how careful use of limited sonic components can generate extraordinarily affecting results in the right hands.
B1 Yellower continues to channel the feverish energy of the A side, making the most of a driven lead sequence that sits front and centre in the mix. A stylish piece of engineering that bridges the record with some style, offering an alternative but equally effective approach to the EP theme.
Closer Lark indulges in a similar energy, albeit tentatively more heads-down in its articulation - carefully constructed with particular attention paid to the groove and arranged exquisitely to generate a latent frenzy over its run-time.
