For some reason I've always thought of Forme as another alias of Sunday Brunch (Sebastian Ahrenberg together with Jesper Dahlbäck), and was somewhat surprised to find out that this is actually Ahrenberg alone, who I believe is more known for his Drum'n'Bass or Breakbeat productions. Forme however seems to be his alias for producing primarily deeper House (which Sunday Brunch is also mostly about), as demonstrated on this EP for example. As opposed to the duo's work though, Forme is perhaps a little less jazzy, but has still quite a few things in common with the collaboration as well, especially the rhythms and the bass, as well as the warmness of the production being somewhat similar and even typical of them.
"Festis" and "Mer" are two rather good, but more laid-back and calm Deep House tunes, the first being more playful with the synths and strings and the latter concentrating on creating the atmosphere with the keys and some other elements. The B-side track "Aqua-Note" is my absolute favourite at the moment, though: with a nearly Downtempo or Ambient influence it's really deep, really atmospheric, maybe a bit more aesthetic and plain compared to the other tracks on this EP.
"Thoughts And Theories" is quite surprisingly an almost Hip Hop stylish tune featuring a vocal performance by Aaron Phiri. Although usually I'm not a big enthusiast of that genre (in fact pretty much the opposite), I think this track works rather fine. Of course it's not by far the best on this EP or by Ahrenberg in general, but still quite alright anyway. It's nice to see that sometimes what you haven’t expected or even dislike turns out not to always be that bad after all.
