Ibiza based Francisco Allendes makes a welcome return to Desolat for his next release, a fine EP that marks something of a new direction for the man across its four great tracks. First up, 2Agility Queen is a raw bit of jacking house with clipped vocals offered up by Dance Manias DJ DMC, bulky drums and classic cow bell tinkles all making for a sweaty and heavy house kicker.
The rapped vocals that come in add plenty of flair to an already firing track. The brilliant “Groundhog Day” is an off kilter, rave influenced tune with wordless voices, militant snare patterns and blasts of frazzled bass frequencies that cannot fail to energise any floor. On the flip, “Flea Allergy” is another anxious cut of coarse hi hats, robotic and wordless vocals and slamming dreams that works you into a frenzy, then “Aroa Leon” gets even more unhinged, lumpy and ghetto fried with its sleazy drums, jittery perc and kinetic sense of energy. This lively, arresting new EP is a fine new direction and sound for Francisco Allendes that never stays too far from the chunky Desolat blueprint we all know and love. [txt from ]
