Tim Reaper: Cityscapes EP

One of the longtime regulars of Blog to the Oldskool, Tim Reaper has been absolutely slaying for years, both as a DJ and producer. His first EP for Lobster Theremin is appropriately titled Cityscapes, and from the title track it just brings vibes of cruising through a city at night, endless hours at clubs, just letting yourself go. Totally swoon-worthy but also really vicious, heavy drum programming. “Sequence 2” is ecstasy-shot techno rather than jungle, but carries the same feelings and doesn’t sound a bit out of place. “Make It Real” is one of those tracks that immediately sounds familiar, just a torrent of brutal drums and mystical melodies — nothing that hasn’t really been done circa 1995 but still just a timeless sound. Instant classic. “(I Can) Feel It” blends atmospheric jungle with early ’90s hardcore, mixing thumpy kicks with filtered breaks, and showering it with gorgeous synths. Super lovely EP, and just a tip of the iceberg from a massively talented and prolific producer.
