This is the debut of the label based in Madrid, ANIMO, and there's no better way to jump-start than with this EP by Alfonso Ares. Besides being one of the creaters of the creature, Alfonso is an established Spanish talent, well known and re-known for his releases on labels such as Nite Grooves, Street King, Playmobil or Regular. This house heritage can be seen without complexes on the original EP track "Jazzy Militant", where jazzy melodies infect a fresh and effective groove. The track moves within the more relaxed deep parametres, thanks to a solid bassline and some light percussion with syncopated rhythms.
The release includes a unique remix of the Berlin duo Channel X. It really shows strength, where these Germans don't think twice about using a good dose of strings and winds with micro funky samples that lead us mentally to Philadelphia. A direct review, designed for the dance floor. An authentic luxury closing.
