WLDV - A Dying Feast EP
For years Nathan Church has been cutting up floors in his native Bilbao. Recently the Basque man’s attention has turned from the Dj booth to the studio. Under his WLDV (We Love Dolce Vita) this Iberian electronic inspiration has cast long shadows and brightened rooms with his blend of horror score intensity and disco exuberance. WLDV arrives at the Bordello with a four tracker of serious intent. Sepulchral and sinister synthlines characterise A Dying Feast, nowhere more than in the haunting samples and clean drums of “A Bucket of Blood”. Cold chords gleam with icy menace while crisp claps punctuate the entrancing funk of “Danza Macabra”. Ecclesia toys with set parameters, exploring what lurks in the twilight between terror and titillation. This flirtation with the divine and the profane is plain to hear in the uneasy elegance and uplifting elation of “Far, Far Away”, a work of steady kicks, unsettling extracts and soaring strings. This “feast” ends on a delectable note. Keys dance and spiral in the intoxicating “Laying Down On Cosmic Dust”, an enthralling end to and enthralling EP.
