Pablo Say - Harmonic Chimes
Spaniard Pablo Say is next up on Markantonios AnalyticTrail label with an adventurous and
coherent six track EP that embodies a life long fascination with music.
Nowadays, Valencia based Pablo Say releases on Truesoul, Deeperfect, ElRowMusic,
Kinetika and many more. He has shared the stage with some serious talents from UMEK to
Tiga and his own jams often get picked up by tastemakers like Marco Carola and Joseph
Capriati. Never far from the Beatport Top 100 and a real techno talent always on the rise, this
new outing is another feather in his production bow.
The top opener Harmonic Chimes immediately establishes a silky groove with rubbery kicks and crisp hits. Reverb and subtle effects help add flesh to the bones and over seven minutes
Say demonstrates a fine grasp of both melody and arrangement.
The Screech is another drum lead track, this time with darker vocals and more nocturnal, freaky synths unfolding above the groove, its a spooky cut, for sure! Next Rock Time flips
the script and gets a little deeper and more patient in its build up with a great male vocal that floats above undulating drums and really make you move your limbs.
Reduction deals in more techno sounding atmospheres, with stiff chord stabs, raining melodies and suspenseful bass all conjuring up a backroom vibe that will sweep over the
crowd with great drama.
Last but not least, Want More! is a slap funk tech monster with bouncing chords and busy percussive patterns working you into a lather before things close down with On The Cloud, a
soul infused roller with peculating pads and freaky tones all jumping out of the speakers with great clarity.
Across all six cuts here, Pablo Say proves he has great ideas and vision and plenty of skills with which to carry them off.
