melodic epic techhouse tracks... music for your quality time ... tip!
Quetame Records is a new deep and organic house label that’s headed up by a trio of artists including El Mundo & Zazou and Niki Sadeki.
The debut release is a stunning four-track EP by El Mundo & Zazou whose eloquent style of soaring melodies fused with delicate percussion is on full display.
Based in The Netherlands, El Mundo has performed as a DJ and live-act together with Zazou across The World and released music on labels such as Do Not Sit On The Furniture Recordings, Kindisch, Souq Records and Earthly Delights.
Zazou is a Berlin-based artist, multi-instrumentalist and regular collaborator with El Mundo, but he has also released solo tracks with imprints such as Laut und Luise and Rebellion der Traumer.
This truly is a magical EP with stunning vocals amidst its dazzling array of vibrant textures and nomadic grooves.
“Sands of Time” opens the release with its soothing atmosphere and haunting vocals nestled amidst a
dreamscape of ethereal synths which are underpinned by a throbbing bassline.
Second on the EP with jovial melodies and digitised vocals, “Watch Me Burn” has a cosmic vibe that sets a trajectory towards the stars with its expansive sound design.
After a cinematic opening, “The River” is third on the release with its haunting vocals and poignant piano. Like a choir of angels, it's eloquently beautiful while also retaining an understated aesthetic.
“Golden Skies” closes out the EP with fluttering synths and crisp percussive textures that combine to create a hypnotising groove with intimate emotion and majestic grace.
