CASTELLAMMARE (INC PRIKU REMIX)
12" Vinyl UK
Killer groovin / hypno Minimal Techno
Cult underground crew BAR Musica return with more gold, this time from label head Bartolomeo with two original tracks and a super remix by Romanian wizard Priku.
Italian Bartolomeo has studied classical music all his life and brings his love of jazz, blues and plenty more to the electronic world. He has released on key labels like Claque Musiqe and Crosstown Rebels but saves this one for his own imprint.
Opener Castellammare is silky and seductive, with slippery synths and stripped back, rubbery drum programming really making for a hypnotic vibe. It is perfect late night dancing material with bumpy grooves while Proprio Tu is an inviting sound world of modulated synths, hiccuping drum loops and freaky vocal sounds. The devil is in the detail of this one which is designed to seep into your brain and stay there.
Closing things out is cult favourite Priku, who ups the ante with his corrugated drum lines and scattered synth effects on a fantastic remix of Castellammare. It's a heady track that oozes class.
Here are three high class, high quality house tracks for the ones who like it deep and heady. [info sheet from distr.]
