Playground attacks again, this time with 3 originals from the Venezuelan, Berlin based, Alejandro Molinari plus 3 remixes by Mijo, Middle Sky Boom and Teniente Castillo featuring Skelesys. An Ep loaded with mysterious voices, rocker beats and dark landscapes.
The first track of this launch is ‘Kann Dich Heilen’, groovy, dark, trippy and freak. A fat bassline walk all around the track, walk in a journey through an Arabic desert marked by hypnotic synth which works as a pad for a voice who follow as during this pleasurable trip.
With the second track ‘Rodeo’, the things gets serious, the trip becomes tough, the deserts is transformed in concrete. Fog in cold streets. Boots and leathers jackets are around the corner. A snare hits hard. A melancholic voice appears. The rock is here.
‘Santo Ritmo’ makes honor to its name and leave the matters to the dancefloor. An electro bass marks the hook of the track. A distant voice is distorted in the background. The terrain gets rough. An acid synth cuts the air and the song explote inviting to a furious dancing.
The Israelite Middle Sky Boom takes ‘Kann Dich Heilen’ for the first remix of this release. Everything starts with a female voice overdubbing the original voice supported by a pad of percussions. Suddenly the bassline enters alongside acid touches of flying synths. A chorus of voices starts to sing a hypnotic mantra with epic sounds behind. Crazy sounds invades the track, all is madness.
Teniente Castillo invited Skelesys to join to his remix of ‘Rodeo’ and when that happen the result never fails, and this is not the exception. Some percussions accompany a very cool bassline till the guitars appears to convert the landscape in a rock and roll ritual. The voices are displaced in the background but still do not stop providing mystery. The guitars goes deeper to say goodbye to this path.
The punkiest Mexican in the world coverts ‘Santo Ritmo’ into an acid rush to remember the best days of the 90’s raves. A sharp snare, a groovy bassline and a creepy voice carries forward the track. The dance is frenetic. Robotic sounds conclude this beautiful music gem.
