Review: Spanish duo Depaart are the latest act to sign to Sasha'a label. The title track brings together a multitude of different styles: there's the stripped back, minimal beats; bass that oozes menace and the somewhat apocalyptic sounding trance riffs. "Column Dance" is more understated; building on low-key drums, Depaart add in some throbbing low end before dropping an epic break down. It's exactly the type of track one could imagine Sasha himself playing. In stark contrast is the abstract "Watered, Cooked, Recycled", where the pair use deconstructed drums and a low-slung bass to create a new vision for minimal house. Factor in a deep, dubbed out take on the title track by A Friend of Marcus and Animal Picnic's tripped out take on "Column Dance" and you've got a hugely impressive debut on Last Night On Earth.
Review: Madrid-based duo Guille and Fran Zaragoza, better known as Depaart, release their second EP here for Sasha's ever reliable Last Night On Earth imprint. The Tortilla and Fluido residents are in fine form on the Migrate EP, with the slinky and hypnotic title track leading the way with its soothing vocal and evocative vibes, followed up by the moody and elevating progressive house jourtney "Malvats" and the sombre yet bittersweet dancefloor drama of "Sunk". On the remix front, British producer Alex Warren aka Kiwi (Correspondant/Cin Cin) delivers an absolutely thumping electro bass rendition of "Migrate" that really packs a punch.
