Javier Ferreira, one of Argentina's most important producers, heading the forceful label Ninefont, delivers with Playground Records a dance floor strictly polished sound EP.
On focus is a powerful track, with histrionic accents, produced through melodies of repetitive voices and an abrasive bass from Roland Sh101 that swirls ahead, as impulsed by an acid groove with riff touch. Edgy drums fills and springy panning sounds bring tension together.
Oneother keeps up the mood, only with more entertaining sounds and metallic plops that pop as tripping splinters. Strident leads set you on edge and turn omnipresent reverberating, occupying all the available space. Closed and opened hi hats carries the swing of a burlesque cadenced track on to the end.
Remixes from Andy Martin, with a powerful sound tech house, bass and reiterative voices in a pushing stomper insistence to shake up the dance floor while squared lab machine sounds make impossible maths.
The second remix comes from Loud Neighbor duo, delivering a beautiful electronic piece, a Jomox MBass 11 bombo bursts in huge, TR8 drums, Volca Keys and Tetra modulations spill us over all the spectrum, skating, mutating tones and timbres. The lead chords become present in even more abrasive ways, taking us through a trip of sensual portamento.
