about

Lace EP is the most concise and adventurous statement to date from Brooklyn-based producer and guitarist Michael Beharie (Tezeo, Shinkoyo). Throughout Lace EP’s five tracks, Beharie pulls at diverse roots, including Jamaican dub, African polyrhythmic percussion, global club, and classical guitar, mixing them into unheard combinations.

Single ‘Damion’ introduces twisted flutes and a winding synth bassline into a maze so intense that it takes a wall of low end drum machines, bell glissandi, and piano vamps to snap the track into motion. A galactic variety of sound shapes collide on ‘Khatka Stain,’ as soft uplifting choral ethers suspend over insistent hyper-rhythmic drum programming and crushed lamellophone loops. ‘Estella’ lattices intricate guitar arpeggiations over a ground-shattering 808 pattern before flipping elements in reverse, affecting the weightlessness of gravity upside down. ‘Cans’ hones in on the club, gushing with emotional honesty as deep as its infrasound kick, which is bound to find its way into deejay sets across many musical boundaries. ‘Cradle’ closes the circuit with waves of minimal synth melodies and shifting digitalia intersecting above motivated electronic drums, which succumb to enveloping pads, laying Lace EP’s meteoric journey to rest.
