Vuurwerk – ‘G.R.I.P. EP’ [Review]
G.R.I.P. EP opening track Black Aerial swings through discomfiting moods, a journey from foreboding to relief of a sort via dehumanised urban sexiness and funky bounces laid over threatening synthetic foundations. This EP’s title track traps multiple vocals within robotic bass tones and brittle fencepost beats, and is given the remix treatment by both DNKL and House Of Black Lanterns. The former stomps and pumps and flows with the practiced grace of a runway model; the latter merges static crackles with deep funk, tortured cries, and a subtly echoing lead vocal.
Overall, Vuurwerk’s latest will fit in perfectly when the Flemish trio hit Paris’s David Lynch-designed Silencio club in March. Even outside that setting, the G.R.I.P. EP is still something you need in your ears if dark and sexualised electronica is your thing.
