Seattle's 214 (TwoFourteen) is next in line for some HCS ear candy. His Miami roots are clearly present in his strong booming beat programming but Puerto Rico born Chris Roman has more tricks up his sleeve as his style crosses many borders. It's a solid electro-techno affair on this EP. Drift Diving could easily be a Warp/Schematic like track from the IDM heydays. Sharp electro rhythms combined with deep string laden melodies, pads and very strong attention for detail are the ingredients for this beautiful piece of machine funk. Porous Surfs on the flip is an epic ambient scape that sounds if it comes from 4000 feet deep. The EP finishes off with Sidestepping, an electro-techno track that has a smart modern arrangement with very big bombastic string parts that will appeal to fans of ERP and the likes. Limited release with hand stamped art as usual.. Huge release on this Frustrated Funk offshoot!
