David Ponziano – Remember My Beat EP


Ponziano.jpgLabel: ParallelScore: 8/10

Burgeoning Spanish imprint turn to David Ponziano for their latest party trick, a three track EP entitled ‘Remember My Beat’. Ponziano, lest you’re unaware, is rightly considered a dab hand in the studio, with his potent, consistent and eclectic sound mannerisms endearing him to many a house-focused label. On the EP, he serves up a tasty reminder of why it is he’s being highly talked of, as he leads us down a rabbit hole that’s fraught with sonic intricacies and numerous exciting facets alike.

Opening the EP is the sounds of ”Remember My Beat”, a joyous, sprightly number that flickers between numerous moods. The delicate percussion, for instance, help give it a sort of latin flair, and the vocal – sliced as it is into smithereens – helps lend it a lovely gloss. It’s a clever tool with which to join the gaps in a set.

Next up is ”Cat Nails”, a track where clever, twinkling bells play the most pertinent of roles. The sporadic synth whooshes help bring a sense of confusion to the table, and matters do eventually take on an even more exciting guise at the enveloping melodies emerge and shine brightest. The final track arrives thanks to Shades of Gray, themselves producers who are being spoken of in influential circles recently. Their take on the latter is more forceful and driving (there’s a lot more going on with that one), and it proves a delightful culmination to a thoroughly charming and effective workout from the Parallel boys.  

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
