Crypticz makes his eagerly anticipated return to Diffrent Music with the ‘Access You’ EP.
Jordan Parsons Also known under the Alias of Crypticz has established himself over the past year as one of the most exciting newcomers to the scene. With releases on boundary pushing labels such as Diffrent Music, 31 Recordings and Cosmic Bridge in addition to the inception of ‘Crypticz Live’ sets, Parsons has carved his own signature sound, taking influence from Drum & Bass, Dubstep, Juke, Footwork, Dub Reggae to create forward thinking music that leaves listeners with a fond sense of familiarity whilst taking them on a journey into unknown territory.
The 6 Track EP featuring collaborations with Canadian Artist Iyer and Vocalist Flunkie, has the feel of an LP, with each track fluidly moving into the next, creating an emotionally rich narrative. delay and reverb are used to great effect throughout, taking influence from Dub/Reggae sound system culture, which we particularly hear in ‘Chamber’; a slower cut from the EP. Parsons showcases a plethora of different styles and influences layering shuffles, mesmerizing vocals, ethereal pads, undulating basslines and subtle textures which culminate in 6 emotive pieces of music that fit into the aesthetic of both club and home listening.
