Peter Van Hoesen - Kelly Criterion EP

Seri­ous dance­floor weapons in this 4 track out­ing from Peter Van Hoe­sen

Ear­li­er this year Peter Van Hoe­sen launched his lat­est imprint Cen­ter 91 with the uncom­pro­mis­ing EP Opal Bal­ance”. The new label sees Peter reflect on his expe­ri­ences of the late 90s under­ground scene in Bel­gium with par­tic­u­lar ref­er­ences to the, in his own words, intense Brus­sels ware­house raves. Now, Peter fol­lows up the debut Cen­ter 91 release with 4 more high ener­gy con­struc­tions wrapped up into this EP titled Kel­ly Criterion”. 


A1. Sec­ond Holo­gram Rose
A2. Trim The Facts
B1. Kel­ly Cri­te­ri­on
B2. Dead Mans Catch

Using his trade­mark ear for sound design of the utmost detail, each track com­bines an amal­gam of immer­sive tex­tures to forge intense, dri­ving dance floor bombs. ” 

The Aside see’s Peter make great use of pul­sat­ing synth ele­ments that sound like they quan­tum leapt straight from the 90s. He light­ly dress­es both tracks in alien motifs, rave fueled stabs and his sig­na­ture ring­ing hats. These two real­ly show Peter’s abil­i­ty to make a lot hap­pen with a lit­tle. On the flip, you have title cut Kel­ly Cri­te­ri­on” and Dead Mans Catch”. Here the Bel­gian tastemak­er is more aggres­sive and direct with his sound. Fer­al synth lines com­mand the son­ic field and build into high-inten­si­ty freak­outs which Peter occa­sion­al­ly tames as he sees fit. 

Spark­ing a blaz­ing fire from the off­set and dous­ing it with lighter flu­id through­out, Kel­ly Cri­te­ri­on is a relent­less pack­age for the most dis­cern­ing tech­no fans.
