Hot on the heels of Och's epic "Stops Out" 12" for fledgling Autoreply offshoot Stuga Musik, the impressive boutique London imprint returns with this double dose of dancefloor moodiness from Apoena. Hailing from Porto Alegre, capital of the Rio Grande Do Sul state in extreme south of Brazil, the producer shows a knack for combining the deep sounds of house and techno with a Latin flair for rhythm and percussion. "Nuvem" kicks things off with shuffling snares riding along tension filled chords and a locked-in groove. But it's the title track "Falando Serio" that takes the cake for us here, with warm chords and claps forming the backdrop to a killer drum pattern. A subtle beast.
