The first track on the EP is ‘Cameron’. It starts off setting things into an energetic mood and makes the worst of moods change instantly with its heavy bass line. Although the track is uplifting, it gets very repetitive. Having the same build-ups, the same drops and the same melody through out the whole song, makes it a predictable song that can quickly become a little boring.
Then comes the title track ‘Horse Code’ with a very spacy feeling at the beginning that moves into a funky beat with a vocal loop perfect in its pitch and position. When the first drop hits it makes you want to get up and move to the raver type siren and the constant bass line. When the vocals come back in there’s no stopping yourself from moving. The duo hit the nail on the head with this track. Don’t expect to hear this track if you don’t run with a reckless crowd because its not for your average Joe. Keep a look out for some awesome remixes of this tune.
Finally Astronomar and Swick wrap the EP up with ‘WYWD’, a very peculiar tune dipping into the sound of Moombahton. Infusing a mixture of African melodies and UK funk with some great vocals makes the track very impressive. If you’re not a big fan of the new Moombah vibe, this will definitely be the song that makes you realize how good the genre really is.
If there are any two people in the world that should continue their work together, it’s Astronomar and Swick. The duo’s different music style creates a unique sound that will soon take the world by storm. Make sure to keep your eye on these two after the Monday 25th June 2012 release of Horse Code on Enchufada.
