Italian duo Hiver release lush four-track '​Soundescence' EP via Curle Reco

Hiver return to cherished Belgium imprint, Curle Recordings, with their latest EP, entitled ‘Soundescence’.  This excellent four-track offering is the Italian pairing’s third EP on Curle, following on from ‘Blue Aconite’ in 2013 and ‘Same Mistake Twice’ last year, which garnered them support from Techno heavyweights such as Sven Väth, Laurent Garnier and Efdemin.

Kicking off the release is the title-named track, ‘Soundescence’, displaying the melodic, psychedelic sound Hiver has been praised for previously. Delicate synth patterns perfectly blend with the understated drums and percussive elements. This ethereal approach to Techno continues on the following deep-groover, ‘One More Snooze’.

The B-side opener, ‘Phonotis’, immediately breaks the silence with a steady 4/4 rhythm, seeing a squelchy synth bassline, warm pads and floating atmospheric textures scattered throughout the six-minute number.

Closing the EP is ‘Floor Diving’, which once again showcase Hiver’s sleek and seductive style of dance music that is made for the dark, underground clubs of Europe and beyond.
