Josiah Fontenot - Old Metaphors EP

Josiah Fontenot - Old Metaphors
For our 40th release on Colour and Pitch, we welcome Texas native Josiah Fontenot with the stunning ‘Old Metaphors’ EP, featuring remixes from Daniel Allen and Mysterons.

 Opening track ‘Chosen Course’ delivers a compact, tight groove; gradually adding on tweaked acid touches and retro stabs as it steadily builds and builds.

Owner of misfit imprint Denied Music and resident at respected Austin venues Plush and Ethics, Daniel Allen turns in a deep, dark reworking of ‘Chosen Course’, making the most of those acid lines and sprinkling on some techno-infused magic that’s all his own.

 Second original cut ‘Fall’s Start’ sees Fontenot in a more reflective mood; electric pianos and chilled pads creating a thoughtful and hypnotic atmosphere before potent stabs take us up, up and away…

Enigmatic production duo Mysterons provide the EP’s final remix, taking ‘Fall’s Start’ into languid breakbeat territory with a bouncy, bass driven groove and spine-tingling, expansive chords.
