Internationally acclaimed German artist Innellea (our interview) looks to continue his stellar run of 2021 form as he unveils his next majestic musical opus, It’s Us EP, following his recent acclaimed Cercle performance from Jaisalmer Fort in Rajasthan, India.
This breathtakingly original three-part offering is out now, and it’s everything we’ve come to expect from the in-form producer, who has a long list of critically acclaimed releases on labels like Afterlife, Innervisions, Diynamic, and TAU, to name a few.
The EP, It’s Us
With the entrancing title track, It’s Us, Innellea sets the tone for the album right away, delivering a complex mix of expansive synth leads, elaborate polyrhythms, and irregular vocal drops, all wrapped in a veil of deep, luscious sub-bass. This delectable slice of captivating breakbeat euphoria, which was dropped as the sensational closer from his aforementioned live performance in Rajasthan back in March, exudes attitude and raw emotion throughout its duration and speaks volumes of a producer at the top of his game.
Golden Fort, Innellea’s second track, pays homage to the stunning location of his recent Cercle collaboration by returning to his four-to-the-floor roots for the EP’s middle section, with a haunting house cut tempered by evocative melodies and cinematic analog experimentation. Innellea’s imagination and creative flair continue to shine through for all to enjoy, exploring a completely different timbre to the warm broken beats and ecstatic peaks of his blockbuster opener.
The EP is brought to a close with the exquisite finale, Haveli, which continues the sub-continental theme throughout the package. Innellea’s nuanced treatment of dissonance and abstract textures converge in perfect accord to conclude yet another extraordinary release from the Munich-based prodigy. An ethereal six-and-a-half-minute anthem replete with hypnotic vocal soundscapes, organic percussion, and frenetic, undulating riffs, Innellea’s nuanced treatment of dissonance and abstract textures converge in perfect accord to conclude yet another extraordinary release from the Munich-based wonder.
