Cleric marks his Clergy label’s 10th release this month, teaming up with Setaoc Mass for a eight track EP.
The two Manchester artists are old friends and partners in the studio, dropping their ‘Clerical Mass’ EP together on Archetypes Records way back in 2012.
Titled ‘Isolate’, the record features a mix of heady-but-hard techno, ambient explorations and a suprise slice of floaty electro — today’s premiere, ‘188’.
Building from abstract beginnings, the track becomes increasingly busy and beat-driven, while plucked notes reverberate off into the ether all around.
With releases from Dax J and Reflec and more in the bag already, and a whole new era of artwork and presentation on the way for the label, the EP is a true milestone for one of techno’s most promising young labels.
Check out ‘188’ below and head to the Clergy Bandcamp to pick up a copy from 26th January.
