patherns

the raster-post series winds up with a pop release by label regular and favorite COH aka ivan pavlov. entitled »patherns«, this cd ep creates a puzzle-like effect while at the same time the four tracks are exercises in constructive melancholy. COH seems to move back to the times of pushing rhythms and propulsive club music of the 80s & 90s (as we all know his love for the "moroder" sound), but the past appears digitalized here.… nothing would make you think that this is not a product of the 21st century!

the »patherns« ep presents COH's sonic speculation in humorous and almost lyrical terms. the texture varies from piece to piece, but the basic structure remains the same and creates a diabolic drive which is a force in itself. while frisky and playful in some parts, this release never loses its depth. in this respect, the listener should follow the instruction on the cover: PLAY LOUD IF YOU CAN!
