Altered Moods Recordings releases its next vinyl EP “Octaves of Energy”. This three-tracker by Mick Welch is a smooth, sultry adventure into the core ethos of AMR music. The “Octaves of Energy” release represents his latest foray into the deepness. “Conscious Field” kicks things off with a tambourine- and high-hat infused beat with rich, dark leads burbling up throughout, interrupted now and then by a wistful bridge with an echoing voice telling you not to be afraid. “Mind Force” is another laid back jam, with a bright, crisp cowbell intertwine with an accouterment of lush pads and silky leads. The final track on the flip side, “Octave 50,” is the deepest cut of the three and also the easiest to work the dance floor with. With its sinewy, filtered pad and bubbly bass line combined with warm, warbling leads, it fits both in the studio and at the club.
