There is something about "Lot of Calls from No One Pt2". I can't explain it but over this track between what sounds like the original sample and the manipulation from Clouds through the different parts of the track is amazing to me. This is coming from someone who is not a huge fan of Clouds' other works. The only other pieces of work I enjoyed was "Elders" and "Timekeeper". This direction they have taken on this 12" is far removed from their other works and is very welcome. There is a certain loneliness to this song that is strong and is conveyed so well. The way the sample is not quantized is welcome as well to have some swing. The bass kick with only three snare hits through the whole song are so heavy that it is the "nail in the coffin" so to say. The only way to truly understand this is to hear the whole song. The snippets most sites give you make the song sound trite as to say it is another downtempo piece. Deep Medi is known for the goods though so followers should already know what they're getting but still. OK, enough gushing about "Calls". On the flip, "Rest of the Cycle". The mode of "Calls" continues with the sound of loneliness but the heaviness has given way to a lighter tone. The drums have lost their heaviness and seem to replaced with a Mount Kimbian sort of vibe. the tempo shifts to slightly higher bpm and is a good antithesis to "Calls". I think between the two, "Calls" is the standout just because I can not find a suitable reference as a comparison. Boomkat's description of the single states it as an "end of the night" type track and that makes sense to me. You end your day/night to this.
