Hraach crafts bewitching remix to Mark Alow’s ‘Temple Of Time’Temple Of Time Mark Alow Hraach Remi

Spanish talent Mark Alow debuted on Sabo’s Sol Selectas in 2018 with Golden Tiger, an EP showing off his knack for balancing minimalism with rich, tribal accents. He was invited back a year-and-a-half later for Temple Of Time, a three-tracker bursting with melody and ethnocentric instrumentation. It seems he leans deeper and deeper into the “world beats” dance movement with each passing year.

Temple Of Time, like Golden Tiger, naturally came with a top notch re-imagination of its title track. Hraach was tasked with the job this time around, and as expected, has done well in crafting a journey of his own whilst maintaining the original’s wistful atmosphere. While Mark Alow was a bit more dynamic in his choice of instrumentals, Hraach takes a more stripped-down, hypnotic approach. Rich synths and distinctive melodic lines are arranged in a drawn-out, echoing manner, while the percussion underneath is arranged in a driving manner. Flecks of flute tremelo from “Temple Of Time’s” first iteration are folded in at opportune times to add just a hint of melancholy to the mix. It’s a yet another class remix for Hraach to add to his growing collection.

Premiere: Namito – Stone Flower

The world finally got to see just how multifaceted of an artist Namito is through his first LP, Letting Go. Released on Ubersee, the expansive project which combined writing, art, and a sonic biography of his life stunned dance fans across the world. For his debut on Sabo’s Sol Selectas, the Berlin-based artist taps into his Persian roots to present a refreshed, and slightly psychedelic take on a classic.

“Stone Flower” takes vocals from an older tune out of Iran, and embeds them in a deep, 4/4 foundation. It’s dissonant and hypnotic, leading listeners down a metaphorical rabbit hole with lush rhythms, string accents, and entrancing basslines. Namito does well in fitting into the Sol Selectas aesthetic—and has crafted a top opening tune for his sets in the process.

Premiere: Gab Rhome – Hidden

Premiere: Gab Rhome – HiddenGab Rhome La Maison

Southern California deep house authority Sol Selectas has invited a new artist into its fold: Gab Rhome. The burgeoning talent has spent the better part of 2018 expanding his influence by way of touring, with a few choice releases on All Day I Dream, Natura Sonoris, and Bar 25. Given his increasingly ethereal, tuned-down aesthetic, Rhome is a perfect fit for Sol Selectas —and he backs this with a well-rounded EP, La Maison.

Each of the EP’s three tracks toys around with symbolism and subtlety. In “Hidden’s” case, one must listen carefully to uncover the song’s classic structure, hidden under a thin house veil. A rustic feeling is present throughout, manifested through warm guitar riffs and hypnotic vocals. This organic nature makes it easy for anyone to connect with the music, and works its listeners into a complete state of trance.

Gab Rhome would do well to play “Hidden” during his upcoming set at All Day I Dream’s annual New Year’s event in Los Angeles, taking place in Gin Ling Way on December 29. More information and tickets to the event here.

Be Svendsen – Getula [EP Review]

This post was originally published on this site

Be Svendsen ended his year on a sensual note via “Getula.” Through jazzy keyboard riffs, Eastern-inspired instrumentation, and carnal rhythms embedded in a mid-tempo foundation, the Danish producer proves once more that electronica doesn’t need to be pounding and high-charged to create an irresistibly move-able atmosphere. Its hypnotizing layers serve as tentacles that keep the listener hooked until the very last beat.

“Getula” also received remixing treatment from rising Italian/Canadian duo KMLN, who created a more atmosopheric feel with their added synth work and balaeric guitar samples. Yet, their version is also heavier than the original, as KMLN chose to anchor the finished product with pronounced bass-lines and slightly tougher kicks.

Given “Getula’s” mystical nature, it was only natural that the piece be signed onto Sabo’s Sol Selectas label. Both Be Svendsen and KMLN are known collaborators with the Sol Selectas brand, and their work certainly embodies the imprint’s ethos.
