LCKD019 marks the first release of LOCKED CONCEPT’s new INTERLOCKED series, which places its focus on collaborative EP pairings of like-minded artists. On display within its first iteration are sonics from two LOCKED CONCEPT alumni, TELLUS & OBEISANT, who combine their auditory ethos on the EP across four tracks.
ADORE YOU opens the EP with warm and motive textures that float atop a recursive breakbeat with ease as a distant melodic line is melded within their midst. TELLUS then delivers his remix of OBEISANT’s INFLATABLE, extracting an expansive tonal atmosphere from the original track’s frenzied harmonies. The rising arpeggios of CARDEL ENGLISH ROSE fade effortlessly as they give way to droning pads and a dense yet relaxed drum pattern that provide the foundation for the track’s constantly evolving sonic landscape. OBEISANT closes the EP with his remix of TELLUS’ MIRAGE, binding the distant energies of the original to a fleet combination of drums and a distorted low end over it’s marathon span.
With LCKD019, TELLUS, & OBEISANT present the opening entry of the INTERLOCKED series on LOCKED CONCEPT, promising further such dynamic collaborations between label artists as the series continues to unfold.
