Following up from Subeenas single on Planet Mu late last year, we have this two track 12" due out on Opit Records soon. "Picture" and "Spectrums" offer another peek into the talented Italian's interesting take on electro styled bass music.
Starting off with a half step vibe before quickly leaping into a 4/4 jive, "Picture" is a tune thatís powered by a lovely analogue bass. Lo-fi pads and melodies help give this a very authentic, dare I say European feel to it, and this is helped along with some nice filter modulations and a driving beat. "Spectrums" is described in the press release as a "monastic rave", and it is easy to see where this bizarre description has come from. Monks with glow sticks and pie-eyed priests are the image of the day for this track, and towards the end of the tune you are pretty much enveloped by the need to repent.
At only 24, there are already signs that Subeena will be around for some time to come. It's not throwaway music, its had some thinking time behind it, and that will ultimately lead to it catching more and more people's imagination.
You can keep up with the latest goings on with Subeena over at her Myspace - http://myspace.com/subeena. This E.P is out in the shops on February 15th.
