Norwegian label PLOINK is new to my radar, but taking a look at their history it’s easy to see why they should be kept an eye on. Originally a club, it has seen many great acts arrive from around the world like Ben Sims, Mr.C, Luke Slater, Surgeon, Carl Craig and Trentmøller to name only a few.
Their newest release by +plattform who has released on Gynoid Audio and Android Muziq, is a really impressive effort called “Tailer EP” that was an exciting listen, surprisingly diverse and very well crafted.
The track that definitely caught my attention most was “Flor.” Containing a tough and throbbing beat from the start, with some great spacey nuances floating around in the mix for good measure. As the pounding rhythm progresses, there’s an unexpected melancholic flute that draws you in for a brief moment, giving a unique contrast and certainly works for me as something out of the ordinary.
