For her first sortie away from her usual recording homes, Adriana steps up in no real unknown territory either, with Stroboscopic Artefacts' Totem series providing a much suitable shelter for her deep-penetration, quaky club weaponry to grow and expand.
Kicking things off in frontally brutal fashion, the title-track 'Embera' sets the mood right away, swallowing us amidst the countless spans and layers of hypno-tech quicksands. With the kinetic energy gauge now set to eleven and kicks thumping their way across a forest of obsessive synth spirals, Adriana then whips up a frenzy of delayed percussions, spaced-out riffs and jammed radar echoes on 'Saija', sure to keep the dancers in a state of wilful enslavement.
Opting for a more straightforward, steady-flying angle of attack, the EP's closer 'Awa' tops it all off on an equally abrasive and elegant note, true to Adriana's trademark mix of groove-making finesse and uplifting potency.
