The NOPASSPORT label welcomes top brand new duo Alampa for a trio of new tracks that show off their style. Alampa is made up of Katya Kolgan and Tagir Kurbanzhadzhiev and they formed on the internet but have found a home on the Moscow NOPASSPORT label. Opening up is the brilliant Run or Defence, a majestic deep house cut with lovely chords and wavy beats. It's got a lo-fi fuzz to it that adds to the intrigue, and gorgeous vocals filled with delicate feelings. Superb effort. Flaming Wonder is a super slow motion track with dubby drums and intimate, vulnerable vocals. Shades of Trentemoller colour the twisted synths and dark moods of this one. The excellent Fade Away is five intoxicating minutes of heavy drums, sombre atmospheres and percolating percussion with another standout vocal that brings real menace yet beauty to the track. This is an absorbing EP and fine debut from this sure to be essential duo.
