BELTERS

Like all great music, it's difficult to pinpoint what this sounds like exactly - but Toronto's Block Univers have cited their influences to include "boogie, house music, cold wave synths, gospel vocals, 808s and moog basslines" - so that would go some way to explaining the magic here. We tried to jam in as many of our favourites on this release as possible. You get loads of bang for your buck for sure. 
The combo of genres is not bad. Sometimes it can result a bit confusing but not here. Vocoders and filtered vocals impregnate all these tracks with soulful vibes and the basslines bring in a staunch persona to these magical tunes. 

Do not be afraid, listen to them and let yourself go with this belters!



STAFF COMMENTS

Sil says: Surprisingly refreshing. I am always wary of vocoders and filtered vocals but here... here it is done properly. Electronic, soulful, forward thinking, dancefloor-friendly. Truly good, folks. Buy on sight!

Tenth Belters outing to date, so a micro-celebration is due. They borrow the mighty fine Bostro Pesopeo from Permanent Vacation who contributes four exquisite tracks to this highly regarded label.

"Don't" kicks us off with the kinda push-pull tension we've come to expect from the best holiday house music. Teetering arps veer left and right across suspended strings and a hooky guitar lick while an electronic kit conjures up an excellent, loose house beat.

"Si Tacuisses" is somewhat more enchanted; deploying evocative, otherworldly synthlines over a steady beat it possesses a kinda of mystic charm and empowering energy that's hard to articulate but easy to feel!

"HoPonos" flicks the arpeggiator to 'ASCENTION' setting, adding some discordant cello stabs for another exotic and enthralling trip into the wildest corners of modern house music.

"Orthros" concludes as a kinda of beatless reprise, allowing us a comment of reflection and contemplation as the EP draws to a close....



Taste making label Belters follows up two strong releases by Wheelman and General Ludd respectively with this killer EP from Naum Gabo - concluding a tryptych of Glaswegian releases for the label! The production partnership of Jonnie Wilkes (JG Wikes of Optimo) and James Savage (mastering engineer for Optimo Music) have more than a few credentials between them, practically (part)owning the modern Glasgow electronic / club scene through their myriad projects, labels and club nights. Fittingly enough, Naum Gabo played live at Optimo's Sub Club party back in 2005, and Jonnie’s influential and supportive presence has been felt over the years as Belters evolved.

Dark, sleazy, techy sharps here across five tracks that display perfectly the unique mood and flavour of a night oot on the tiles in Glasgee! Rambunctious and biting, edgy AF but always party-focused. Top stuff here from all involved.
