Closer To God – A.B Vs Ectomorph
Stamina Records 21st offering lands with proof that supporting new talent is a priority when the tunes are good as they are on this EP! Stamina newcomer Ectomorph drops a double whammy of big beats alongside label boss A.B, with ‘Closer To God’ taking pride of place on the Yin side. An intense free of form workout rewriting the rules from the off, A.B & Ectomorph chop and change up the track’s structure, bouncing from crunchy acid sections to psy-inspired hard synths – with a healthy dose of riff-based energetic euphoria in-between! Cemented by a big room vocal sample that’ll have the crowd chanting and simultaneously enacting the track’s moniker, ‘Closer To God’ is a guaranteed freeform floor filler that has been doing the damage club-wide already.

Reminiscence – A.B Vs Ectomorph
Balancing out on the Yang side of A.B & Ectomorph’s first collaborative effort, and as expected, completing the necessity of diversity Stamina Records EPs demand, is ‘Reminiscence’. Taking inspiration from the classic sound of early ‘00s hardcore and freeform, but with ultra-modern production values and ideas thrown into the mix, ‘Reminiscence’ puts musicality centre stage as raves revel in the rush of its raw, uncompromising main riff. A choice female vocal sample completes the nostalgic atmosphere of a time when trance influences unprecedentedly and unashamedly prevailed, and coupled with an unexpected hard and energetic drop, A.B & Ectomorph’s creation simultaneously fulfils modern day dancefloor criteria, too. Supporting new talent since its inception, Stamina Records once again delivers doubly on this huge EP.
