about

Anthony Antsyferoff, better known as Dapple Apple, was a proud addition to the Silk Music family last year, with a standout EP on Arrival ("Cognac 1994"), a brilliant remix of G-Tek's "Infinito" on Silk Digital, and masterful recent remix of Alex Maragos' "Play 6" on Silk Textures. This follow-up contribution to the Textures imprint takes the form of a new EP, showcasing once again the sophisticated and sexy sounds of this rising sonic craftsman.

The title cut, "Beyond A Shadow of a Doubt," offers a rich soundscape, with filtered pads evoking a sensual mood early on in the tune. The water-logged bassline, heavily reverb'ed synth stabs, and wide-panned rhythmic effects immerse the listener into a veritable Eden of sound. A great hook in the tune - perhaps the most memorable - is a provocative vocal stab, which entices the listener forward (as if sampled from the mythological Sirens).

Talented Russian artist and Silk newcomer Stan Chetverikov maintains the blissed-out vibe of the original, with sweeping pads and wet synth stabs throughout. Yet, his mix offers a techier, more "bit-crushed" texture, as well as a lovely piano and sax-driven lead break. In the latter half of the tune, a more energetic new lead arp gives the track extra weight.

The final tune in the package is a second original by Dapple Apple entitled "No Seagulls Allowed." Again, the sensation of being underwater immediately is evoked here, as tranquil textures are underscored by a brilliantly filtered bass. Synths stabs and pad sweeps routinely punctuate the track, while a techy "lead" synth dominates the mid range.
