Elgo Valkoinen aka Elgo Blanco is the moniker for a group of producers hailing from Italy and over the past few years the crew have released their twist on contemporary house via Cab Drivers Cabinet Recordings, Nova Grooves and Old Vibes. Here we see them offer up their latest work via Cinthie's we_r house, a perfect fit for the labels refined and groove-driven house aesthetic.
Leading is 'Arpo One' which employs bumpy drums, an amalgamation of intricately woven bass and synth stabs and subtly nuanced atmospherics throughout. 'Arpo Zero' follows next, embracing a more percussive led feel with organic drums, chanting vocals and wooden marimba style melodies ebbing and flowing within.
First up on the b-side is 'Just In Case', moving things towards a more micro house feel with swinging robust drums, modulating synth whirrs, a soft stab sequence carrying the groove and wandering acid-tinged bass stabs. 'Ota & Time' concludes the EP, fusing metallic kalimba melodies with rounded sub bass tones and a low- slung rhythmic drive.
