Third Life EP
Dexta comes with his most personal work to date: three Moog-fuelled tracks dubbed the ‘Third
Diverting away from his recent hypercharged club disruptors, the Diffrent Music founder instead opts for a more measured, and ultimately more hypnotic, approach.
Opener ‘Third Life’ is the most menacing effort, though in the manner of a relentlessly approaching stormfront. All ominous chords and descending scales, it has the air of a classical organ piece, rewired for the 41st century.
‘Swan Filter’ — produced with Iliad (one half of Conduct) — and ‘Letting Go’ offer some respite,via a sleuthy trip-hop joint and some achingly delicate autonomic, respectively.
Together as the ‘Third Life’ EP, they further showcase how Dexta’s versatility and ear of something out of the ordinary are as present in his studio work as they are when A&R-ing.
