We kickstart our 2021 release schedule with Barcelona-based duo, Hotel Rubio. For their debut on the label, they deliver a strong ep, with sharp influences both from Barcelona, and their city of origin, London – a serious and dancefloor-friendly melodic ensemble.
The title track, Smoke Signals, combines classic progressive melodies with modern drums and an asymmetric arrangement, resulting in a powerful underground cut.
The A21 remix' arrangement is more traditional and old school proggy. Its catchy melody, spacious build up and warm familiarity makes it a versatile track and valuable weapon in DJs' repertoires, across house and techno genres.
Last but not least, Rain Dance is a superbly well written piece. Its rich combination of components, led by a sharp synth and an equally moving bassline, are simply breath-taking.
