Review: At six tracks deep, the latest volume in Columbian label Nomada's "White" EP series is an expansive affair. The first three tracks come from Phuture Shock Musik regular Karmasound, who first delivers some Rhodes and sub-bass heavy deep broken beat action ("Atrapado") before riffing on deep, Latin-tinged broken deep house ("Raices") and jazz-funk/broken beat fusion (the superb "Chichen Itza"). Lesser-known producer John Tareugram then takes over, confidently striding between drowsy, sample-rich deep house (the wonderfully groovy "Glorieux Passe"), insanely bass-heavy cut-up house heaven (stab-happy standout "Laiton Sphere") and skipping jazz-house pressure ("Paul & Dave").
Review: Out of Australia Andy Hart's Voyage label has been drawing up a new picture of exotic new age and electronic sounds since 2014 with a highlight of releases from Uluru, Albrecht La'Brooy, and most recently Rings Around Saturn. The label now introduces the sweet, sublime and subtle ambient sounds of newcomer Huerta in what could be considered a crowning release of the label so far. This superb debut album presents a swathe of sweet, twinkling synths and mellow undertones of warms pads and smooth leads that dive into an unknown world of wildlife flitted with sketches of house, breakbeats, percussion and tribalistic dub. Take a trip into the undergrowth a new age future music.
