a fireball to accelerate our post-winter thawing. spanish producer pepes first foray on lph. it starts off unassumingly, with a bright, airy beach boogie thats all gentle drums and trebly synth figurations, but it quickly turns its eye to the strobe-lit nightclub, first with delusions of grandeur, an angular hypnosis of syncopated rhythms, then with aerial, a 130 bpm blitz with an epic build and an equally dramatic breakdown. capping it off is 50 am, which, as the name indicates, is a woozy shuffle thatll help you land the plane nice and easy.
breaking down the boogaloo, study all we can do. conquered panic & bored with style, manucure might be too wild. but everything should be fine wine despite the evident warning. hum hum, sing, rap, simply dance with the mad yogi discernment. sleek or bazerk, bump with the jerk or ride a bike with angels, hustle on broadway! you will need two copies, if you want to blend your psychic power to romance with direct note access. monotonous for stereo tonus chic! peep with hummus connecting lakes & sleepy volcanoes, incognitoes
pepe continues on the regular atavisme catalogue number order. and again two classique straight up, longue and burning 4 to the floor house tracks as only bradock can do. is this really a party? yes you bet or in pepes unfiltered words: the legal age of majority and the right to vote. chronology and timing is mandatory to make things happen supposedly. after the terrible plague of awful doppelgaengers, it is time to smoke out the disgusting trolls, using the best ingredients possible, is this really a party? yes you bet! is hunger healthy or unhealthy? moderation is key, oui guess. but a table!
steve pepes danza moderna takes cues of all manuel cascones musical experiences (from no wave to weird pop, from sound scores to abstract ethno music and even children music) and puts them inside the big container called dance music trying to demolish some of its automatisms. the result is seven tracks that feel too alive to enclose them in a genre. music thats playful and transcendental at the same time, with the kind of natural and effortless feel thats so hard to achieve
pépe is back on renascence for the 7th installment! futurepresent is directly aimed to the fuss that hyperspeed life creates, living in a world where information is so fast. if the record were a colour, it would be a confusingly deep green aquamarine, fresh and tonic like a gin! we re in space, but also inventing the wheel at the same time, as if we were living in a timeless state of mind.

with the motorforce ep, pépe joins the renascence family in its fourth installment. a both tear-jerking and hot-blooded collection of music inspired by long highway drives in the spanish summer, pépe goes from lost-in-the-tarmac-jungle percussions to relentlessly emotional energy with melllow and nostalgic synths. dan white brings you deeper than the marianas trench through a light, spellbinding, dub rework under the rings around saturn moniker to top off the emotional trip that this entails.
