  • Glad Chord
  • Basically
  • Glad Chord (Psycatron Remix)


After two quality EP’s by Egbert and Peter Horrevorts and a DJ compilation by Secret Cinema, the label front man presents his first EP on Gem: Glad Chord.

This powerful package includes the melodic anthem ‘Glad Chord’ which builds and builds tension with its repetitive synth jabs and unfolds into pure euphoria before diving back into the groove.

The A2 is a deep hypnotic tech-bomb called ‘Basically’. The track captures its listener with funky percussion over a complex bass line combined with quirky synths echoing around and pulling you in deeper and deeper.

The Glad Chord remix on the flip is provided by Belfast based duo Paul Hamill and Dave Oost Lievense a.k.a. Psycatron. Already they are Irelands biggest exporters of electronic music and many see them as one of the greats of the future. Psycatron treated Glad Chord with added strings and a more varied sequence giving the track an extra dance floor friendliness that many will appreciate.

This is definitely another Gem!
