Review: Pariah - Safehouses EP

4 Crossed Out
5 C-Beams
6 Safehouses


Pariah is very quickly becoming one of my favorite producers. He hasn't been producing for very long either, which makes his music all the more impressive. 'Orpheus' was the track that really put him on the map, but I have yet to hear a tune of his that I don't like. The basslines on this EP are always rolling and heavy, characteristic of the Future Garage sound. Influences from Burial and UK garage are front-and-center as well; the vocal samples are always beautiful and often quite dark, and Pariah nailed the drum track grooves. If I had to pick a favorite, it would probably be 'Railroad.'
