Diogo's meticulous arrangements and idiosyncratic approach to electronic music have made him shine over the last years as one of the youngest and most promising talents rising from Portugal. 'Tanto Amor' is a 2-tracker EP of expansive excursions rich in detail, expansive low-ends, and rhythmic structure, and not only is this his solo debut on Pluie/Noir, it's also a warm and welcome comeback for the imprint after a long hiatus period. 'Tanto Amor' (A) is a haunting composition of marching drums and crisp hi-hats, but its ever-mutating melodic arrangement, along with Alba's hypnosis-inducing vocal tricks, creates a wide dynamic spectrum of sound capable of filling any type of sonic space. The flip-side 'Wasame' (B) adopts a freestyle, delirium-inducing approach where wacky minimalism and repetition do all the mind-tricks. Elements communicate and move in a very liquid, organic way yet never losing the drive, giving the overall palette a slightly jazzy, improvisational tone. The EP's artwork also sees a debut of another Portuguese talent, Pics of You, using solely analog photography as his tool of expression, fitting to this installment of an ever-strengthening series of releases Pluie/Noir collectors were missing. Limited Pressings.
