Something of a treat here from Barcelona's Hivern Disc label, as they deliver the first in a series of digital-only releases focusing on analogue-heavy house jams. Stylistically, much of the material sits somewhere between classic Chicagoan acid, vintage deep house and the retro-futurist new school doodlings of the 100% Silk label, without particularly sounding like any. There's a glacial melancholy to the woozy melodies and vintage jack of Aster's superb "Olde", while T&J's afro-tinged "Drum & Synths" sounds like it was beamed down from some distant star. Kresy's "En Bypass"exudes a delicious warmth, whilst Marc Pinol's "Solve Et Coagula" has an analogue swing and clattering groove all of its own. Formidable fare.
