Beraber is a new alias of underground Amsterdam beat-maker Baris Akardere, a producer arguably best known for his blazed, hip-hop influenced work as Sotu the Traveller. For his first outing on hometown imprint La Freund, he unfurls a wonderfully evocative and life-affirming range of melodious deep house jams. There's a classic Ben Cormac feel to warm and starry opener "Sun Ritual", while "Ugly" wraps woozy, twinkling synth chords around a chunkier, analogue-rich groove. Check also the subtle electro rhythms and cascading synth melodies of "Introspect", the deep and jazzy shuffle of "Forest Rain" (a thing of rare beauty) and the first light rush of yearning closer "Sea Feels". Arguably best of all, though, is the dub-tinged breeziness and lilting positivity of Vincent Floyd's remix of "Sun Ritual".
