Co-founder of Lisière Collectif & Kosmogonik, Bogdan Ardeleanu marks his debut on Swiftness under his solo moniker @ardb with a 3-tracker so timeless we guarantee it will age like a bottle of posh wine (we don't refund if not tho').
The "Unusual suspect" EP is an exhibit of crafty club-oriented productions that emerged from ardb's versatile music persona.
The smooth nostalgic harmonies of the pads on "Every other day" hit as an instant classic. The name together with the repetitive sequence of the main lead both suggest the groundhog day-like phenomena we can all relate to in these pandemic times where every day feels exactly the same.
Punchy acoustic toms and jazzy ride patterns are the EP's recurrent themes and are blended very smoothly with breakbeats and robotic arps on "Reverdie".
The bassline on "Unusual suspect" is a serious tension builder that is being deconstructed into an unexpected explosive free jazz drum solo on the main breakdown making it a real weapon that you will want to carry in your bag.
