"The Third Omen" is the newest release from bass music aficionado and Headtron heavy-hitter GoldRush, released February 14th on Gravitas Recordings. Driven by a mixture of 808 drums and lavish yet tense chord progressions, the seven track EP manifests both sexy and psychedelic characteristics. Slurping and distorted basslines are presented through left-field polyrhythms, which are skillfully alternated with retro synthesis and intelligent lead melody. Vocalists Evar After & Eileen Esposito bring a dreamy, celestial quality to the EP, fitting perfectly with GoldRush's provocative, jazzy style.

In the first moments of "The First Omen (A.W.A.K.E.)", it's difficult to tell where the track will take you -- but soon pitch shifting blips merge with stuttering stabs creating a harmonious unison. "Finally on the Fritz" takes a bit more serious tone; it's arrangement bounces back and forth between sharp, varying bass sounds founded in deliberate composition. Next in line, "Closer" time travels back to GoldRush's earlier days with a flirtatious vocal and a polished, compelling beat. "Loaded Silence" speeds the pace up, providing a simultaneous haunting and beauteous elation. Classical theory prevails in the title track presented through fluttering keys, but "Forever Yours" closes out the EP in funky fashion, focusing on the vocal's interplay with the modulated brass and tiny percussion.
