To get us started we have 'Overreaction'; a track that creates a hypnotizing vibe with crazy synths and FX over a rolling bassline, a killer groove and slow evolving pads that add texture and keep the track nicely filled out whilst this infused timeless classic keeps on giving, as it grooves along. Wonderful melodies flow with ease, encapsulating a wealth of harmonics peppered throughout, with chiming and tinkling sounds that are met with a big low end creating a timeless bubbler that will make you move.
Next up is the title track 'Hidden Trap' for which Max used effected samples to create a lovely grove on the top of a driving percussions, which really augments the flow of the track. Max shows his love for melodic and deep FX by taking Hidden Trap to a different level, oozing of coolness, accentuated by warm pads that feel like a silky blanket of sonic spheres, which wrap you into an alluring soundscape. This excellent track proves Max's superb production chops and diverse musical tapestry.
The use of the percussion phrases throughout both tracks also reinforces the driving character of the tracks and adds by creating a distinctive sound that keeps the release fresh and exciting. Max's message is loud and clear, as he once more shows that he clearly has the musical tools to mess with your mind, just the way we like it.
Max Margolin's fantastic 'Hidden Trap EP' sees a worldwide release on June 4th, 2018. Not to be missed!
