"On my first release for Echoe I wanted to demonstrate why people call me the ''chameleon" and on the EP you can find sounds ranging from downtempo-electronica to heavy melodic club tunes. Each tune tells its own story." Cali Lanauze
A shimmering synth opens Could See You Everyday, delicate percussive work combines to produce an icy piece. Take Me Out ft. Gabriel Luque & Frankuchi moves the atmosphere to one of hypnotism, smoky tribalistic whispers float on a weighty low-end. On DNLA the tempo is reduced, but the intensity remains, powerful sub-bass ebbs and flows as the beat is manipulated. Callejon de las Flores forms an energetic groove as contrasting synths ride upon it. With a brooding undercurrent, Martires begins with spacey electronics, a more playful melody is introduced but it retains an edge of deep emotion. Amburges f inally ignites feelings of warmth as fizzing keys reverberate around the bass line.
