Hypnosis was one of Drumcodes most vital under-the-radar releases of 2019. Its creator, Veerus, returns to the mothership for another top-shelf offering. The Italians career is a brilliant slow burner, releasing EPs sparingly over the course of his 14-year career. Theres a narrative quality to each track too, the artist reveling in a drama-laden call-and-response dynamic. All three cuts from his latest System EP are made for big moments. The title track was created with Amsterdams holy rave cauldron the Gashouder in mind, and was completed by Veerus just a few days before ADE last year. Balancing on a knifes edge between tension and euphoria, the tracks twisted synth lines sent an energy surge through the iconic venue. Year is a deadly one-two combo of synapse-searing synths and sharp drums as jagged waves of sound throb with panoramic effect. It was a captivating highlight of Beyers set at Amnesia in Milan in February, the final session before the lockdown. Pyramid was debuted at Beyers Cercle performance last September, sound tracking a blissful post-sunset moment at the Thtre antique de Lugdunum in Lyon.
