Kamilo Sanclemente – The Art Of Voice (Clubsonica Records)

The 17th release on Clubsonica Records welcomes Kamilo Sanclemente to the label for his debut single.

Kamilo Sanclemente - The Art Of Voice

The Colombian producer has been hotly tipped this year with releases on Baroque Records, Einmusika and Perspectives Digital. Kamilo now makes his first appearance on the Clubsonica imprint with ‘The Art Of Voice’ alongside remixes from Antrim, Jonnas B, Juan Pablo Torrez and Felipe Valencia.

Kamilo has grown into one of his country’s top up and coming producers. With a sound that shifts between the deep, dark realms of house through to tougher melodic techno, Kamilo is quite adept at a variety of styles and it’s certainly something which shows throughout his discography. ‘The Art Of Voice’ finds the Colombian producer taking his percussive grooves on another memorable and soul touching journey. Anchored by a funky set of bass stabs it strikes an immediate dance floor appeal. With the atmosphere slowly building a hazy, harmonic resonance descends over the piece for a lovely emotional touch. The main break brings a unique approach, with twisted robotic style effects building tension before an elegant finish closes the track off perfectly. Another unique and wondrous creation from Kamilo.

The first interpretation of ‘The Art Of Voice’ is provided by Antrim who is making his first appearance on Clubsonica Records. The Argentinean producer and Hernan Cattaneo favourite has been busy this year, both with his solo productions and collaborative work with Classound’s Luis Bondio. His most recent original and remix productions for Balkan Connection have been some of the strongest of his career, and he continues that momentum here with an excellent interpretation of ‘The Art Of Voice’. Anchored by a techno inspired framework and smooth hypnotic lines the Argentinean producer slowly builds a melodic motif around the pulsating beats and eerie vocal elements. A gorgeous synth carries the track into the main break on a high before long spacey sweeps further ignite your senses. With a buzzy tension running through the interlude, Antrim expertly builds the atmosphere for an unforgettable drop and ultimately smooth yet exhilarating conclusion. Huge work from Antrim.

The second interpretation of ‘The Art Of Voice’ is provided by Jonnas B who is also making his debut on Clubsonica. Also hailing from Colombia Jonnas has found a home on Abstract Space Records and Per-vurt Records where his fresh progressive sound has flourished this past year. For his ‘The Art Of Voice’ interpretation Jonnas has gone darker and more techno inspired with great results. Waves of claps and haunting textures quickly surround the punchy groove before the main break showcases a spooky, time stretched portion of the vocal. A buzzing electricity builds at the foundation before the beats return and the skilfully contoured groove goes to work once more. Beautiful remix from Jonnas.

The third interpretation of ‘The Art Of Voice’ is provided by Juan Pablo Torrez who is returning to Clubsonica for his sixth appearance. The Colombian producer and Clubsonica label boss is fresh off an appearance on the Perspectives Digital ‘ADE Sampler’ where he collaborated with fellow countryman Kamilo Sanclemente on the excellent ‘Arisen’. Here he remixes Kamilo in fine fashion and the result is one of the Colombian’s most exciting productions to date. Juan’s fresh percussive sound has lent itself well to the strong themes from the original as the melodies slowly fade into the mix amidst a wall of energetic drums. With the electric melodies and burning sonic decay leading the track into the break the vocal elements intensify, bringing a rush of white noise which summons the groove back for a spectacular conclusion. Huge remix from Juan.

The fourth and final interpretation of ‘The Art Of Voice’ is provided by Felipe Valencia who is returning to Clubsonica for his second appearance. Also hailing from Colombia Felipe’s unique blend of genres was showcased by One Music Records throughout 2014 which earned support from a long list of industry favourites. Fans of Felipe know his tough, minimal sound works wonders on the dance floor and on his ‘The Art Of Voice’ interpretation it also complements the previous four versions quite nicely. With a dubbier and decidedly darker approach Felipe has added his own unique stabs and rhythmic elements for an undeniably groovy bomb which closes the release out on strong note. With no less than five fine versions to choose from this is one Clubsonica Records release that you don’t want to miss.
