Unheralded Melbourne artist Klaps debuts with Flash. We’ve been sitting on this one, so happy with the title track it took some time to generate remixes that ably supported the original. Now with remixes by Tokyo artist Ryogo Yamamori and Brisbane artist Metapattern the EP comes to life. Throw in the B side o.0 Loop with Composite Cone remix and this pack starts smiling back at us like a precocious child.

1. Flash
A scythe slices through the industrial debris. A landscape littered with the detritus of an age. A resonant kick illuminates a way, echoing, issuing forth a call to the wild, a call to the faithful. Explosions in the distance, waves of noise, tidal sheets, rising, falling, filling the soundscape to breaking point. Another drum, morse code, remorseless, insistent, beating it’s way through; somehow leading, somehow calling. A way will be found.

2 Flash Ryogo Yamamori Remix)
Something makes its way in a dilapidated 8 bit Atari theme park. Dodging interference and aliens and monsters this figure is an adroit soldier. It rallies in the drop, it chews up energy and spits out fire. It rides an arpeggio and stares up and down. The journey is an exercise in hypnosis, the safe word is not found.

3. Flash (Metapattern Remix)
Growling in the murk. Bright flares like stars, pinpoint holes in black. A song from somewhere stills my mind; the rest unravels. Is it sanity or hope that is lost? Neither as the ship breaches the horizon. Sails are set and wings extended as we come adrift from the surface.

4. o.0 Loop
The piano man stabs at keys with a two step reminder of Chicago. Times were good. We sit over whisky and wine and remember even though we weren’t there. Such as it is when memory drifts into tales yet to be told. We’re busy here can’t you tell. We’re remaking the world in the image of that which hasn’t yet come…and it’s got fun times written all over it.

5. o.0 Loop (Composite Cone Remix)
Generous pauses and well meaning friends with well timed messages. Fingers dance on table tops but we just can’t tell if it’s nervous tension or subject evasion. Nevertheless the point is made, it must have been the latter because we leave with full hearts and clear minds.
