REID is Eoghan Reid, a 22-year-old producer from Cork who, only yesterday, released his debut EP for free download on Bandcamp. The Genesis EP clocks in at five songs and just under 18 minutes in length. And for every single second of every single track, nothing goes to waste and the listener is never anything less than enthralled. The opening track, ‘Forrest’, plays around a repetitive loud/quiet dynamic that is exhilarating. The title track, meanwhile, is a mid-tempo, laid back affair that plays into the highlight of Genesis, ‘Diptera’. A low-key intro builds into a sonic landscape that is again built around a Pixiesesque loud/quiet dynamic, just without the shouting of a demented madman.It’s tempting to compare REID to Cork’s other electronica star of 2011, Toby Kaar. Both make lush instrumental music and both are so early into their career, it is exciting to think where they can take things from here.
