Track of the day #7

The spanish Hivern Disc label has in the past couple of years managed to launch the career of some of the most interesting current leftfield dance musicians. Pional and John Talabot are nowadays about to be big names. That automaticly tends to make us look closer at the label’s new releases.
And lately, a very limited 7″ found its way into our hands, and to our surprise, this split single’s B-side had even more to offer than the John Talabot A-side!

“Tormenta del Desierto” is the first wax track released from barcelonian duo Aster after last years download only Neon.
In my late teens, I “worked” as a guinea pig for a pharmaceutical laboratory called Aster for a couple of summer in order to pay for my holidays. I must say the stay there was a journey in itself, a pretty psychedelic one, not unlike the one our homonymous duo embarks us on. A rather cosmic affair, Tormenta features a beautiful cowbell/Tuned percussion duet in the midst of an ARP synthesizer and bass slo-mo slug-fest. It indeed works wonders and sets the duo on the map for the near future.

Lately, they’ve also showcased Chicago house and UK Funky/Future Garage influences (Jamón Jamón, Otro Dia!), which is far from displeasing us, so stay tuned and enjoy!
