OMENA

Golden Retriever returns to Omena with a release that is adventurous, pleasing and ethereal.

There's never been a more ideal time to revisit this artist and "Nafasam" is a testament to their enduring, transparent & unique compositions.

Six moving and ambitious songs. Absorbing, beatless rhythms blended with a beautiful light-touch and free-flowing feel for harmony, revealing true craftsmanship and a singular sound.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Circular picked guitar passages smothered in dreamy reverb, gentle undulating synthscapes rippling through the coastal breeze; this is unadulterated hammock music at its very finest folks.

TRACK LISTING

A1. Part Lake
A2. Andro Dunos
A3. Digambara
B1. Modulations 1
B2. Modulations 2
B3. Kizuna Encounter

Based in Berlin Max Newton & Matalo have delivered percussion heavy funk and gritty Nuyorican rhythms on both GAMM and Take Away Records. Their new release on Omena LTD continues on the same path and adds deep house and breezy Latin flavours.

"U-Bahn At Midnight" sets things off sounding like a classic MCDE house jam with ringing melodies and sharp horns. "Walkin' On" uses the classic Freddie Hubbard sample we all know and love and adds some gently grooving percussion, flappy kick drums, fluttery arps and electronic bass.

On the flip "Pao De Acucar vs Vesuvius" is a slowly unfurling, summery house track; primed for daytime festival play. Finally "Brooklyn Survivor" ends things and lands somewhere between Glenn Underground and DJ Koze, with warped vox, rising strings and beautifully plotted drums.

A mighty fine way to close the Omena LTD series.


STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Thick, chunky, sample-based house music in that vintage style we love so well. Includes a nice flip of that Freddie Hubbard track but it's that final track "Pai De..." that really does it for me.

TRACK LISTING

A1. U-Bahn At Night
A2. Walkin' On
B1. Pao De Acucar Vs Vesuvius 

Part 1 of a two part project from Casino Times exploring the fertile ground between techno, breaks and bass. The two 12”s make up a fully realized album; cemented into a durable yet expansive electronic framework which is perfect for Joseph Spencer and Nicholas Church to hang their ergonomic high voltage tapestries. These are functional tracks with just the right amount of head space and cerebral leaning to gift home listeners as much as club goers. The ingenuity and creativity levels are high right across the two parts; landing in the same territories as KH, TOHT, Overmono and Club Winston yet with their own rugged, hardware driven outer shell. 

TRACK LISTING

A. A Change In Motion
A. Tweak Feat. Cimmerli
B. End Of Civilisation
B. Passing By
B. Square
