Kandar – Maybe Someday [Balkan Connection]


In a rare mid week release Balkan Connection welcomes Kandar to the label for his debut EP. Unfortunately other than a bio which reads ‘It’s all about the music’ we can’t tell you much more about this new artist, however he did first come to our attention with an EP on Madloch’s 3rd Avenue imprint. Written in conjunction with Morning Delusions, it was a two track progressive minded offering of much intrigue. To much acclaim, the duo also placed in the top 5 of Quivver’s recent ‘8 Bit Eclipse’ remix competition. Now quickly following that up, Kandar debuts on Balkan Connection with ‘Maybe Someday’.
Beginning with the title selection Kandar explores a blend of progressive house and melodic techno. On a backbone of big, bulbous beats comes mystical themes and astral effects. Quite mysterious sounding and yet very inviting, as it’s warm, meditative pulse and timely chord changes quickly command your attention. The percussion is on the choppy side and it works remarkably well, adding character and tension across the first act before eventually stripping down to a bassy hypnotic drawl.
The EPs second selection ‘Story to Tell’ has been performing really well with DJs pre-release and thus seems to be a clear favourite of most on the package. It definitely comes from a more pure progressive state of mind with a a slower tempo and well contoured, groovier low end. Haunting atmospherics come in waves, as sheets of noise and timely harmonic shifts advance the storyboard with a brooding tension. It’s a compelling journey and one you’ll want to enjoy several times over.
The release concludes with ‘Just a Human’ which again sits closer to a pure progressive sound. Played out over nine amazing minutes, it’s swing heavy cadence and rhythmic pulses do wonders for it’s dance floor appeal, while a a haunting harmonic narrative gets more enticing with each successive loop. Likely the most emotive piece on the collection it does come with some reflective tones, but not at the expense of it’s unique resonance. It caps off what is a stunning EP from Kandar, who is definitely someone you’re going to be hearing a lot more about as 2019 progresses. Highly recommended.
