Dimi Angélis & Jeroen Search – Our Life With The Wave
Little White Earbuds describes the track as being ‘music so entrancing it becomes possible to lose all sense of time, until the dawn light begins to seep through the blinds‘. Earlier collaborations between the two, like ‘Sleepless‘ though in the more Detroit end of Techno, show that this duo are adept at both the discombobulating and functional spectrums. ‘Our Life With The Wave’ though is as powerful as two planets colliding. The verbose bass is wide and punching humming along with grace. Lower acid squelches melodically sit perfectly with the sub ass rumbles. The hats hiss panoramically, hypnotically spaced out distempering a place to get lost in. Dramatically, billowing chords are then delayed and panned, to then be held down theatrically. It’s an incredible contrast between the bass and mids that deserves true applause.
Other similar Smallville releases in 2009 came to be STL’s ‘Silent State‘ and ‘Neurotransmitting Clouds On The Secret Freeway‘. Such tracks sent the Underground into a frenzy over Smallville, after witnessing music that was so nonpareil. The same can be said about the track in writing. ‘Our Life With the Wave’ is Dimi Angelis & Jeoreon Search’s second release on Smallville after ‘Configuration’. Though it was to be their last, it certainly left a lasting impression.
