Universal Motion EP by Alinka
Fantasy Life boss Alinka readies Universal Motion EP for Radio Slave's Rekids.
Previously appearing on the likes of Permanent Vacation, NeedWant, and Crosstown Rebels, the Ukraine-born, Chicago-raised, and Berlin-based Alinka treats Radio Slave's Rekids imprint to her "Universal Motion EP", delivering four party-starters for her first release on the label.
A1's "Universal Motion", a driving synth-led number, strongly sets the tone by bringing thick Italo-inspired leads and warping synths together to maximum effect. Moving into the second track, the bouncing "Emotion 2 Emotion" intertwines floating pads and loose, bounding drums for a fun and highly playable track.
On the flip, "Round & Round" is a funky yet stripped-back affair, utilizing raucous percussion, well-placed vocal hits, and pulsating basslines to create an irresistible groove. Taking the final spot on the 12", "Reality Love" sees Alinka draw for stuttering bass, classic samples, and dense synths for an excellent closer to the EP.
Alinka's rep as a DJ and producer has continued apace in the past few years with some of her biggest fans being the most notable names in the world of house, disco, and techno, and "Universal Motion" shows her at her best.
