Having already blessed the airwaves with their masked Boiler Room performance, and with releases and features seen on YUME, Huntley’s & Palmers, Permanent Vacation and Antho- ny Napel’s Probito, the promising talents of Edinburgh duo Hi & Saberhägen continue on Lo with ‘Acid Finger’.
The five track EP showcases exactly what the pair are known for; exploring the balance of the subtle and direct natures of dance music. There is something extremely unique about their productions that breathes new life into an arguably stat- ic climate.
‘Acid Finger’ travels from highs to lows at a consistent and co- herent pace, starting with the sparkling, disco tinged ‘Forcé Boîte’. Euphoric heights are executed through light flourish- ing synth lines, drum patters and chord stabs. ‘Woodrum’ maintains the pace but switches the tone with jungle rhythms and a pounding bass.
Ominous belter ‘Git’ with its driving kick, looped vocal sample and rolling bass. The track develops into a hopeful finish with the introduction of glittering synth movements. Title track ‘Acid Finger’ delivers beautifully delicate percus- sive and melodic work that progressively shapes up against fleeting shrill synth lines that come to a fitting crescendo. Ending the release is the melancholic atmospheres created in ‘Redacted’, bringing a shift in mood and imitating a trudge through memory lane.
Expect to see and hear a lot more from these guys in the future..
