about

The fourth installment in John Osborn’s DRED RECORDS series will be from fellow UK producer Harsh Puri who goes under the moniker Reformed Society. DRED 004 consists of six tracks in total - three that will appear on the vinyl release, followed by another three that will be digital-only exclusives.
Harsh Puri aka Reformed Society debuted in 2015 with this being his sixth consecutive release in order.

Harsh’s productions caught John’s eye, or rather ear, after being sent to him last year and resulted in this release of six solid prime time deep house stompers. Packaged in an understated matte white sleeve with a black and white picture of Brahma (the four headed Hindu god of creation) handstamped on each cover by the label owner himself, this being a continuation of the human skull DRED logo.

“ONE LIFE” opens the “DIMENSIONS” EP and is the track given to label boss John Osborn for deconstructing and remoulding into his own specific vision - each release will contain a rework from Osborn. If you are familiar with John’s previous work you will immediately recognize his characteristic resonating percussion, the tune being a deep house sci-fi storm expedition driven by a full luscious kick covering the tracks of chords from unsettled pads. The EP’s title track has ambient sonic rays flowing through it, being aptly named “DIMENSIONS” – it is also the record’s warmest adventure; distorted percussion juggles sparse subaqueous melodic moments, and from here we go into the 12”s final moment, “CHASING TITANOID 3077”.

Reformed Society goes in with full yet silent force on this one. A warped bassline co-creates the groove with a particularly bouncy beat with sharp strings piercing though.
The digital package sets off with the original version of “ONE LIFE”, a kick resembling the vinyl’s closing track takes charge here with rolling drums and a shuffling melody that again picks up the space excursion - a quiet yet effective deep house dancefloor filler. The ominous “PRESSURE” opens graspingly, inhaling you as brooding drums and percussion urges the listener to glide over its reduced thoughtful melody.

We come full circle with “STRANGE WORLD ON EDGE”: Puri seems to have a talent for naming his productions according to their sound - distorted percussion lie on top of heavy bass drums eventually relieved by a playful, almost taunting melody curling it’s way through. “DIMENSIONS” is dripping with sci-fi moments yet firmly rooted in the dirt and soil, bound to create memorable dance floor moments in 2018.
