Meg Ward has spent years formulating a special relationship with underground culture in the North of the UK and was appointed one of BBC Music’s ‘Tips For 21’ in the North East. Ward has carved her own distinct path through energetic sets tied beautifully together by love and passion; It’s on the dancefloor where her taste and musical schooling took place and that same schooling has fed into her dynamic, rich and jubilant productions.
Meg’s releases on labels NeedWant, Clipp.Art & a remix on Patrick Topping’s imprint Trick have been doing the business around the globe, and she now brings her radiant ‘Connections’ EP to important UK imprint Distant Horizons.
The result is as a record which brings together the best elements of club and house, evoking a sense of freedom and expression through uplifting synths and body shaking bass lines. Opening track ‘Have Your Love’ makes full use of Kariya’s original vocal, a balanced mix of old and new culminating in a fresh and inspired club ready cut. Meg then turns her head to laden kick-drums and melancholy induced pads, their tension released by the introduction of coiling arps. The A side comes to a close with ‘Connections’ a functional, yet ethereal track that seems to be signaling to something more.
The B side opens with ‘Rupture the Rhythm’ starting with breaks and sirens, acting as a signal calling all ravers to the dancefloor before the place erupts with the help of a 4/4 kick-drum and an active bassline. ‘TekHerGucci’ keeps the floor moving with laseresque synths and glossy vocals. ‘Cosmic Heat’ sees us out, the perfect end to a thrilling journey through the eyes of one of electronic music's most promising artists.
