EP-opener "Estasi", being a co-production with Amsterdam based kindred spirit Retromigration, already assembles every possible ingredient you come to love in a classic House tune. That funky bassline. That filtered vocal bit. Thoses Rhodes harmonies. That spoken word part. That overall jazzy vibe. Thats basically emotive and soulful Housemusic to the max.
"Cobra Bubbles" takes things even up a notch, ringing the 909 alarm and highlighting a killer piano riff. And yet again, that Funk and groove fueled bassline and the percussive patterns just cant fail in heating up a dancefloor into sweat-from-the-wall-dripping conditions.
Then finally, you first have to process the misleading track title "Cute and Fluffy" to appreciate Carlos multifaceted skills as a producer. That tune comes along rather un-fluffy with a bass heavy, reverb-shrouded breakbeat with some admittedly pretty cute field recordings on top. But just wait until the acidline kicks in and youll see that sometimes the Aterral storm can leave some serious devastation.
All the congenial artwork on Aterral comes courtesy of Berlin based artist Jennifer Burtchen.
