Bruno Furlan returns to Hot Creations with his fresh two-track EP, ‘Bongoloco’
Brazil’s Bruno Furlan returns to Hot Creations with his fresh two-track EP, ‘Bongoloco’.
A DJ and producer whose recent studio endeavours have seen him release material on Black Book Records, Fool’s Gold and Material, Bruno Furlan is an artist at the centre of Brazil’s recent explosion of names within the house and tech house landscape. Based in São Paulo, the bubbling talent has built on his early experiences within the Brazilian electronic music scene to make appearances at global events such as Dirtybird Campout and AMF Festival. Following an impressive debut on the label with his two-track ‘The Speakers Pump Like This’, late January brings a return to Jamie Jones’ Hot Creations imprint as he serves up two fresh dancefloor-leaning cuts across his ‘Bongoloco’ EP.
“After the first release on Hot Creations, ideas started to boil in my head daily, and I wondered if Jamie would play every song I started or not. When I started ‘Bongoloco’, it was a very raw groove, and I needed something striking, a mix between a little crazy and something that made sense in the music. I thought about adding some percussion, but nothing was good until I came across this bongo and fell in love with the sound of it on the track. It’s impressive how achievements improve our ideas and performances, and my Hot Creations debut was one of those. I have no doubt ‘Bongoloco’ only exists thanks to Jamie’s first ‘Yes’”Bruno Furlan.
Title track ‘Bongoloco’ takes cues from its name and showcases a skittering percussion-driven production built for peak-time hours as warped drum fills and vibrant vocal calls inject an abundance of energy. Keeping things moving, the rolling ‘Vai’ delivers a slick accompaniment to the package, serving up an anthem built for bustling terraces worldwide.
Bruno Furlan ‘Bongoloco’ drops via Hot Creations on 20th January 2023 and we premiere ‘Vai’ on Data Transmission, grab the EP here.
