The elusive Berlin label Mask are back with another anonymous release featuring four, analog-driven tracks entitled Cliff. Known for being purveyors of mysterious yet exquisite hardware induced tracks, Mask continue to hold up their reputation following on from Hunter (MSK 004EP) that picked up support from the likes of Laurent Garnier, Elena Colombi, Machine Woman, Anastasia Kristensen, and DJ Deep. Cliff involves four people live jamming on analog equipment in a Berlin based studio. A1 begins with crunchy drums fused with revolving, modulated synths and obscure elements that are soaked in acid flavors before the A2 focuses on an electro-tinged sequence in harmony with ominous atmospherics and eccentric oscillations. On the flip, sweeping pads balanced with intense kicks and washing synths take the focus on the B1 until the B2 rounds off this magical EP with wavering compositions, hard-hitting percussion and unsettling sound design keeping the atmosphere intense yet truly absorbing.
