Artist:Ben Pearce
Release Pomelo
Label: Moda Black
Genre: House

Ben Pearce makes his welcome return to Moda Black in early 2016 in the form of his Pomelo EP. This 2 track EP see’s the Mancunian producer deliver 3 heavy, club-focused house-meets-techno cuts. The title track ‘Pomelo’ comes in two guises; version one slowly builds on textural layers, flittering arpeggios and a driving acid line, all with their sights locked on the dramatic main break, before slowly evaporating back into a bed of beats. The dub version, however, sheds the melodic components in a favour a a rawer, grittier feel.
