The fourth release on Luis Bondio’s Classound Recordings is out this week and with that they welcome Santiago Teillagorry to the label. The Argentinean producer hails from Rio Cuarto, Cordoba and this will be just his third official release following outings on Liquid Grooves and Funktripes in March of this year. Santiago’s debut EP for Classound is entitled ‘Samsara’ and it comes with three brand new original productions.
The lead track ‘Samsara’ gets the EP underway with an atmospheric intro that provides some extra large scope. The meaty kick along with a smooth rhythmic sequence drop in and the groove is already beginning to take shape. Haunting atmospheres, bassy growls and angelic vocal pads lead to a short break. Here the vocal elements come to forefront and cast a wicked vibe over the proceedings before the rolling groove quickly drops back in. Vibrant drums and hypnotic rhythms push the record through the centre section as some escalating atmosphere and pianos push the senses through a nice climax. An amazing production from Santiago that has already been played by Hernan Cattaneo both on his Resident Radioshow and at the Creamfields festival.
The second composition ‘Latotiss’ slows the tempo down just a touch and comes with a groovy melodic vibe. The main break is particularly special as it goes through a series of very unique melodic themes that are an absolute pleasure to listen to. The spacious sounding groove just highlights the great melodies even more at they really get a chance to breathe. A great complement to the bigger sounding ‘Samsara’ no doubt.
The final track on the EP ‘The Change’ begins with a driving percussive groove that’s nicely accented with some smooth rhythms and well placed vocal elements which build up towards the main break. A short ‘The Change is coming’ vocal sample is then revealed during the drop and with it comes a subtlety ominous vibe. The dark undulating groove then reappears and builds to a smooth climax as the marching drums and mesmerizing synth lines weave their way through the composition. This is an amazing debut for Santiago on Luis Bondio’s Classound and props once again to the label for showcasing the best in up and coming Argentinean talent. Release Promo Hype Chart Top 10
