About this item
Symptoms of Love, a project by Detroit duo Ryan Spencer (Freakish Pleasures) and Ben Christensen (Sector 7G), present "Foam EP" on Sydney label Planet Trip Records. This is the team’s second release, a follow-up to their 2019 "Eye Contact" (SOBO, Montreal). "Foam EP" reflects a contrast of the high-energy late nights and laid-back afternoons in the sprawling echo-chamber of Detroit.
Recorded over the course of two years, the duo stack live instrumentation onto the vast synth and drum machine collection in Christensen’s home studio. The tracks are finished with explorations into sample-based wormholes that deliver a truly diverse EP. The sounds cruise through balearic and streetsoul inspired smoothness, machine funk dancefloor jams, and bleepy percussive workouts.
This five tracker holds a mood and a groove for every hour of the dance; be it at peak time, sun up or sun down. Receiving early support from Jex Opolis, Millios Kaiser, CC:DISCO!, Lauren Hansom, DJ D.DEE, Ben Fester, Ruf Dug, Bayete & more.
Matt says: Niiice n steady balearic-house business with 'nuff tropical inflections and a buzzy vibe right though. Already getting big spins from Ruffy, I'm reckoning this is gonna be huge when the masses catch on...
