brian cid, extinct, premiere

Rating: 8.0

Brooklyn based producer Brian Cid cut his teeth by engineering for a wide range of names in modern pop, including Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Wiz Khalifa and Rihanna. A decision to tap into the underground house scene was made, and through the mentoring and guidance of Todd Terry, Cid embarked on a journey to deliver bold perspectives on production. Now, he is famed for his lush and sense provoking sound. Inspiration is gathered from the golden age of house and the artists Latin roots. Together this makes for deep and tech house sounds that bridges the old and the new.

Cid’s next project is the second edition in the Extinct Dream Series, coming out on the producers own Extinct Records. Extinct Dream Series 002 “encapsulates that atmospheric, otherworldly universe, where synths just fly around in a reverb drenched landscape.”

‘Truth Lies Ahead’ kicks of the carefully crafted mini album. An alien atmosphere is created. Images of forgotten worlds flash in your eyes. Brian’s love for cinematic sound is very evident throughout the tracks nine minute length. It takes on many forms, consistently surprising with new and engaging layers that provoke an emotional response.

Extinct Dreams Series 002 is out on Extinct Records on December 15th.
