The Nantes natives from the Distant Waters label are ready with another joint. This time it’s a split between semi-freshman Emi Ömar and the label’s regular Sans Sucre. We’re slightly more interested in the second name so our review will start from the end of this release.
“The Riddle”, under the B2 position is a nice example of music, that is coming from France lately. Some will call it post-minimal, some – retro-futuristic… To be honest, I don’t know how to categorise it anymore, I can just tell that tracks like this one are gladly welcomed into any type of house sets all over the world during the last few years. Marching kicks with mellow vocodered voices – sounds great to me. Wouldn’t be surprised if I heard this one on Forest Ill Records, for example.
“The Living Wreck”, also by Sans Sucre is another example of that music. This time with a bit harsher bassline, but also with a melody that won’t let you be gloomy. That raving chords closer to the end are my honorable mention here.
Emi Ömar’s side starts with an unnamed track. Called “????”. Another take on something that could be a video game OST, but can also raise the fists of hundreds of dancers. My second favorite on the record. His other one, “Aquaboulvard” has the same vibe, we had on POLO-06 premiere not so long ago. Progressive roller with two parts, that won’t let you go all those 8 minutes of its existence. And some robotic voices too, are never a bad thing.
The release is going to be out very soon – Juno, Deejay, Decks – check all your open tabs with pre-orders.
