"I nawet niechętnie mnie się na ląd wysiadało, bo przez dni dwadzieścia człowiek między niebem i wodą, niczego nie pamiętny, w powietrzu skąpany, w fali roztopiony i wiatrem przewiany" Witold Gombrowicz
Yet another thrilling adventure lead by Transatlantyk, a label who specialises in discerning journeys into dancefloors of the world.
This time it's SELVY at the helm, already known from brilliant EPs, edits and remixes on LSR, The Very Polish Cut-Outs and Fata Morgana.
A young musical prodigy hailing from Poznan, Poland is usually devoted to the sound of 90's American house and tropical electronics in the vein of Ryuichi Sakamoto, but this EP proves that his influences extend much further.
'Catamaran' mixes organic percussion with blazing synths and melodies from way out there, creating a slice of uplifting, Mediterranean warmness.
'Calliope's Dream' is a rolling piece of aquatic house, fueled by a wonderful bassline, bouncing rhythm of kalimbas in the back and playful melodies.
The B Side takes us into darker territory, starting with 'Heban', a track that mixes African elements with futuristic sounds and heavy, but subtle drums.
'Lost Treasure' is the second most charming cut here, slowing down the
bpm's and upping the ethereal factor. Think new age electronics mixed
with drums similar to those in Codek's 'Tim Toum'.
