Watts the time Mr Wolf? Review
The first Fly Productions EP release by producer Night Wolf is an epic, orchestral-strings-driven delight with banging dubstep rhythms. Featuring Centrist’s lush string arrangements, the mini-debut is home to four original compositions and one exclusive remix of the symphonic-folksy-metal track ‘I Fade’ by Leah. Amor Vincit Omnia, the first instrumental tune has the skippy, early-2000s dubstep rhythms, one-note blippy bass wobbles and a cinematic strings overture. Apparently this kind of sound has been now been given the header of ‘Cine-step’ which is a reflection of the EP’s close incorporation with film music. One highlight perhaps for us is the final installation Crossing Euro with it’s haunting, operatic female vocal and sampled snippet of a Nightwolf radio interview. The latter also serves as an introduction to this emerging producer’s creative profile. The textural weightage of the music is cemented even more by symbolic wolf-howl moments, which leaves us wondering about the virtuoso mind-wanderings of both Centrist’s & Nightwolf ‘s time in developing this record.
