PREMIERE – The Organism – Conquistador (TAU)

Welcoming Ukrainian artist The Organism to the TAU family with this delightful EP. Roman Yarmolenko began his career back in 1999 as DJ Alfred, and made quite a name for himself. But he made a conscious shift into the underground in 2013, finding more satisfaction and joy in producing music that didn’t fit into mainstream ideals. Over the years since he has established himself as a formidable producer, landing releases with labels such as Diynamic and Disco Halal. Now he’s joining the TAU squad for his debut EP Ups And Downs after testing the waters a while ago on the label’s Spektrum 2 VA…

The title track gets this EP off to a glorious start, demonstrating The Organism’s ability to craft tension-building dance floor bombs. Fueled by a guitar-esque riff, the track grows from rather sombre beginnings to a crescendo led by a catchy, yet indecipherable vocal sample.

At this peak, he creates a scintillating breakdown, which takes us into the latter part of the track which continues the funky rhythmic dance up until the very end.Next time is the aptly-titled ‘Conquistador’, which begins with a whirring low end guiding us into more low frequency oscillations and a macabre atmosphere. Slowly more unusual sounds and effects are added, though it remains minimal in its architecture until we hit the first breakdown. After which point, the energy increases with additional percussive elements creating a sense of urgency. Another breakdown heralds the final segment, with vocal clips utilized as instrumental layers and the hypnotic rhythm keeping you locked throughout. Lastly, ‘Cowboy’ keeps things on the dark side. The Organism’s ability to craft stirring atmospheres is evident from the start, his deft touch gently builds this one into a vibrant workout. A huge breakdown really sets this track off, and we’re sent flying into the second part of the track full of excitement.
