The second release on the Neverdogs’ new label is another cracker, with Sebastian Ledher and Matteo Gatti providing two tracks each.
Ledher is one of Colombia’s finest DJ exports and runs his own label Play Groove Recordings. He has played vital clubs like Cafe Del Mar, Fabrik in Madrid and festivals like BPM, while his tasteful house and techno counts amongst its fans names as big as Carl Cox and Marco Carola. Here he links on a split EP with Italian Matteo Gatti who brings his own take on techno to a brace of brilliant cuts.
Ledher goes first with ‘My House’, an acid laced jam with warm analogue bass. It’s the sort of fluid track that worms its way through the floor, with punchy drum programming and dark vocals adding energy to the groove and helping make a big impact. On a different vibe entirely is the slick minimal house of ‘Brick Lane’, which has tender piano chords over rubbery beats. It’s one for the back rooms and the Berlin heads, and oozes soul.
Gatti then steps up with the brilliance of ‘Bamboleo Mood,’ a chunky bit of machine house funk. Crunchy hits offset a warped synth line and sci-fi motifs colour in the airwaves to fantastic effect. Last of all, the excellent ‘Like Mento’ is a perfectly programmed bit of electriconic music with fluttering drums and hits, freaky hooks and urgent bass that carry you late into the after party.
This is evidence once again that Bamboleo is on route to becoming one of 2019’s most vital outlets.
