Mariano Mellino returns to the label with another stunning EP.
Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Mariano is one of the fast rising producers in Argentina. Influenced by the cream of progressive house, his style has become a regular feature on high profile labels such as Balance Music, Plattenbank and Asymmetric Recordings.
'Toro' opens with a confident tribal groove. Building in energy, melodics and airy pads hang from the percussive framework delicately giving the track a sense of space and wide-screen cinematics. The lead line is abrasive and adds buckets of tension to the main drop. Like a bull in a china shop!
'Kon Kon' is a more reserved beast. Opening with a percussive energy, echoes of melodics punctuate before the main earworm synth fades into earshot. Meditative and calming, its hypnotic vibe satisfies and recalibrates the mind.
