Vernon Felicity is also known as Conforce and Boris Bunnik, the tireless Dutch producer who marries analog and digital sounds together into otherworldy sound tracks. Now he is back on MOS once more after a new Conforce album on Delsin, and again he impresses with his unique ear for detail and ability to craft intricate sonic worlds. The label’s excellent 23rd EP kicks off with ‘Fake Profile’, an icy bit of deep techno with a sprawling 303 acid line and typically deep and soulful pads in the background. Dance floor ready but also super heady, it is rich in detail but full of groove. ‘Induce’ is a more broken beat pattern with lumpy 909 drums, lazy open hi hats and gloopy bass. Sombre, downbeat chords add real emotional resonance to this mid tempo house cut as it slowly trudges though the cosmos. The flip finds ‘Dropping Faces’ get all manic and out of control, with whirring machines, wild drum programming and plenty of angst percussion. Subtle cow bells and distortion add texture and scale and it is the angriest cut here. Lastly, ‘Running Late’ rounds out an expertly varied EP with lush synth drones that slowly uplift you as the drums and percussion do their slick work down below. Once again, Vernon Felicity proves he can make every style of electronic music, and does so with real personality.
