For an artist who has captured the imagination of progressive music fans for over a decade, Cid Inc. has raised the bar yet again with 'Bird Cherry'. From its lively beginnings you're immediately captivated as tight beats, buoyant bass tones and finely tuned percussion converge for the ultimate rhythmic wave. Sparse yet timely, ghostly effects add further anticipation before crunchy stabs steal the air as the main break commences. The centerpiece shifts the narrative into emotive territory as blissful harmonics and warm chord changes lead to a swirling synth vortex for the ages.
Equally stunning is the companion piece 'Fear and Square'. Opening up with a punchy yet warm groove, Cid Inc's finest production hallmarks are on top form here. Hypnotic and fluid, the pulsating framework gets adorned with ghostly atmospheres, smooth rhythmic artefacts and a deadly, hip swinging arp. Adding further fuel to the fire a vocal narrative and growling stabs highlight the break, lost in a forest of cascading electronics and shifty harmonics before a timely roll sparks a dynamic drop.
Cid Inc. has had a hand in many of progressive music's finest moments, from the aforementioned 'Abyss' to the 2017 smash 'Shifter' and the ultimate set closer in 'Contrite'. Never content with resting on his laurels the Replug label boss has etched another golden moment in the genre's history with 'Bird Cherry'.
