Luis Bondio’s Classound Recordings continues its strong momentum this week with a new EP from Diego Poblets.
The labels 17th release finds the Argentinean producer making his debut appearance which follows excellent outings on Sound Avenue, Mistique Music and BQ Recordings. Diego’s debut EP for Classound is entitled ‘Frog’ and it comes with three brand new original productions.
The lead track on the EP ‘Frog’ was first played by Hernan Cattaneo on his Resident podcast back in March. Now finally available for purchase it sounds as fresh now as it did then. It’s acidic groove and hazy atmospheric drift lays down a great foundation early which ultimately leads to the main breakdown. Here Diego introduces a very unique sequence of fuzzy tones which makes for a playful lead line. This ups the energy during the break and into the second half which should prove very effective on the dance floor. There are some bigger elements in this record which we aren’t really used to hearing in Diego’s productions but it works very well.
‘Columpio’ is next and is showcases a trippier side of Diego’s production skills. Backed by another rock solid groove the Argentine’s lead elements are a blur of hazy psychedelia here. The general state of unease they create already delivers some palpable tension which gets upped even further during the main breakdown. The tracks epic conclusion is the biggest on the EP and should create some magic moments in club land over the coming months.
The third selection ‘Pasamanos’ has been the highest rated track in the Release Promo Hype charts and it’s also my favourite on the EP. With a bit of a deeper and more refined hypnotic approach Diego has nailed that contemporary progressive sound which is so loved right now. The breakdown is filled with a soulful musicality that might be one of Diego’s career highlights thus far and that grinding underbelly of textural bass which summons the beats back in is the icing on the cake. Outstanding 3 track EP from Diego which results in continued excellence from Luis Bondio’s Classound Recordings.
