Best Albums of 2020: Evadez ‘Revive’ EP

Revive EP (Sine Music)

Young British composer Evedez delivers this perfect little five-track EP of Balearic-style downtempo for Germany’s Sine Music, fitting in well enough with the label’s smooth and lush ethos but also standing well out in the subgenre with inspired writing for piano and strings and sophisticated layering of melodies and complex textures. One track, “1141”, also uses syncopated rhythms that hint at trap and dubstep, a fresh take on the usual drum breaks. Revive is up there with label star Thomas Lemmer’s past classics Ambitronic (2017) and the Meeresleuchten EP (2018), revealing depths upon depths with repeated listens.
