Munich-based Portuguese producer Alkalino has previously impressed with a swathe of disco, boogie and Balearic edits, and a handful of original house productions. It's the latter strand of his work that he revisits here, dropping a heavily electronic chunk of fizzing deep house in the shape of "Movimento". It gently builds in an impressive manner, with the gradual introduction of ever-more melodious elements (swirling chords, crystalline strings etc) as the track progresses. Finnish producer Plagia handles the virtual flipside, delving deeper into shiny, Balearic-inspired tech-house territory with the bluesy "Can't Stop This Feeling". In addition to some hazy melodies, it also features some high quality percussive builds.
In just four releases Brame has managed to land himself solo releases on Morris Audio, Dirt Crew and Drumpoet Community, which speaks volumes for the quality of his deep house wares. It's the latter that he returns to for round two, finding fresh form with the sublime and soothing tones of "Vinyl Cut" and the edgier thrust of "Absent". The standout track on the EP is the title jam, which takes a more progressive route as swirling melodies weave a mystical message around the heads down drum lines, leaving plenty of room for delectable techy stabs to inject some mechanised soul into the tune in its later stages.
