David Gtronic & Lilith – Kuxan Suum EP
Label: Amazing MusicRelease: Out Now
Amazing music was born in Peru between Matthew Lima and Federico Burrati. Since 2009 they have been putting out avant-garde electronic music.
This release stays true to the label name and is a stunning record from David Gtronic and Lilith. You might remember their first collaboration on Art of Dark Lagrimas Del Sol that stayed around for quite some time in Beatport charts and record bags alike.
Title track Kuxan Suum opens with a growling sub-bass, resonating alongside choppy percussion characteristic of Columbian born David Gtronic, an artist known for providing quality minimal techno around the world and is a staple member of tINI & the gang. As the nearly 8 minute long track grows, a gradual intertwining of strings and eerie sounds slowly fades in and out, providing a compelling composition. Lilith’s beautiful touches show how the two producers, individually quite different in style, work so well together.
The flip Chelou sees Lilith at her very best. A captivating groove and delicate drums immerse the listener, before an enchanting Cello sample breakdown emerges mid-way to create a rainy, mysterious atmosphere. Lilith is becoming known as an artist that can really provoke emotion and digs deep into the soul, whilst still maintaining absorbing rhythm.
Finally we see David Gtronic rounding off the EP with his take on Chelou. Not taking too much away from the original production, he adds a touch of dance floor weight, with a rolling bass line that blends finely with the Cello and crisp snares.
Dark and light subtleties combine here on another quality crafted release from the two producers whose work continues to earn them merit for their sounds that tie deep, complex textures together with infectious dance floor inspired flow.
