Review: The team at Iron Shirt Recordings have been on a pretty relentless roll across the breadth of 2020, with there being at least one notable drop a month it would seem. This latest outing sees them yet again flexing their muscles as they welcome Jaswan inside for a spice-laden four-tracker, commencing with the airy woodwind textures and sumptuous drum designs of 'Oracle'. From here, 'Atlantis' follows with a similar vibe about it, dripping with organic shaker layers and creeping background melodies that give the whole track a bit of a sneaky feel, followed by the more potent snare crunches and glittering synth slides of the title track 'Dias Muerte'. Finally, the charming chimes and melodic plucks of 'Toy Box' puts the final touches on an excellent body of work!
Review: It's starting to feel like every week we see a new Encrypted Audio release land in the store, and we are not complaining for one second as Jaswan continues their fantastic run. We begin this one with a dive into 'Nocturna', a warped, writhing piece of electronic elegance driven by lethal reee tones and quirky percussive hits. From here, we take into the subtle eastern string plucks of 'Sakura' and blippy melodic structures of 'Saraswati', before 'Yo We Dreaming' combines sizzling shaker patterns with floaty atmospheric pads and breathy percussive influxes to round us out in style. Fantastic stuff.
