Tom Frankel returns to our Killer Cuts series with four bubbly, melodic house tracks which touch base at Italo and progressive trance.
The London DJ, producer, label manager and one half of TIN family duo Frankel and Harper released ‘Milestone’ EP back in April last year: a skippy house cut with a strong nostalgia for early ‘90s raves. One year on, ‘Pingers in a field’ sees Frankel focus on bubbly melodies and rich textures.
‘Pursuit’ is a polyphonic Italo-leaning house banger driven by sumptuous claps, whilst ‘Virtual Reality’’s anthemic melody and acid textures steer more towards progressive trance. ‘Commodore’ follows suit, adding in layers of cosmic ambience that floats blissfully above an assertive tech house beat before the dynamic acidic synths on ‘Blind Date’ bounce beneath high-pitched arpeggios.
