It's been some two years since the release of German producer Manuel Tur's last LP, the bizarrely titled Swans Reflecting Elephants. While that set was largely dark, moody and atmospheric, there's a cozy positivity about much of this belated follow-up. While there are hypnotic, late night moments (see the after party wonkiness of "About to Fall"), as a while Es Cub is a much more upbeat affair. Check, for example, the drifting Balearic house brilliance of "EL Soplo", whose extended breakdown serves to highlight the brilliance of Tur's yearning, metronomic groove, and the dizzyingly bright "AraAnam". Amongst the heartwarming deep house explorations you'll also find "Es Dub", a thrillingly sparse and atmospheric chunk of slow house that more than lives up to its name.
