chymera 2 Below / Saphiron (12", £5.10)label: N.R.K.
Chymera returns to NRK Music, this time with a two track EP of slick and deep techno house. 2007's ‘Wish’ EP on NRK won him best dance track at the Irish Dance Music Awards and helped establish him as a producer to watch. Championed by top flight DJs such as Laurent Garnier, Nick Warren, Funk D'Void and Jamie Anderson, its infectious ‘Knights Of The Jaguar’-style melodies put Chymera firmly on the map. ‘2 Below’ is a gorgeous techno track; starts off very delicate and just keeps building and building with some warming chords, swirling melody and driving drums, reaching a chaotically soulful peak. ‘Saphiron’ ploughs a more old skool, housier route, with a very functional production of deep keys, groovy bass and tight percussion.
