Continuing a strong spring season, Tash's Movement Recordings welcomes Los Cabra, The Note V and Daniel Neuland to the label for their debut EP. Hailing from Germany, Mexico and Germany respectively, this trio of talented artists has more than carved out their own unique spaces within the electronic underground. The trio's collective discography is highlighted by releases via Get Physical, Heinz Music, Lump Records, Stil Vor Talent and more, while world class DJs have chimed in with support of late. Now, combining their extensive forces for Movement Recordings, Los Cabra, The Note V and Daniel Neuland debut on the label with 'Carrizalillo', alongside a remix from Ivan Masa.
Title selection 'Carrizalillo' finds Los Cabra and The Note V crafting a contemporary slice of melodic house. Immediately captivating with its muscular grooves and chunky rhythmic sequences, the duo brings electric chord stabs and hopeful atmospheres into the mix, as colours blur across a break that is equal parts tense and emotive, ultimately propelling the journey to a tastefully twisted finale.
The lone interpretation of 'Carrizalillo' is provided by Ivan Masa who also makes his label debut. With a career that spans the better part of two decades the Italian artist has forged a resonant worldly sound which focuses on inventive use of melody and rhythm. It's this fresh approach which has seen the Caserta resident showcase his music via ATLANT, Diynamic, NOTTURNA, Stil Vor Talent and more, while world class DJs such as Solomun and Tale of Us have been steadfast supporters along the way. Now, following an EP for JEAHMON! Records to begin the year, Ivan makes his Movement Recordings debut with a powerful take on 'Carrizalillo'. While maintaining the electric spirit of the original, the veteran artist crafts a sweeping sonic experience all his own, a fiery journey where capricious drum experimentation meets siren-like wails and grungy synth-swagger for the ultimate dance floor assault.
The second and final original 'Best of Both Worlds' is provided by Los Cabra and Daniel Neuland which further cements the EP's dancefloor vision. A collection of recalibrated sonics and emotionally resonant hooks highlight a buzzing groove-centric first movement, perfectly whetting the appetite for a finale of striking chord stabs and buzzing tonal tension which rounds out the release on a strong note.
