Seville-based electronic duo Space Castorz head to Feral One Records for their three-track EP, ‘Devil’.

An exciting pairing based out of southern Spain, Seville’s Space Castorz have been bringing their Latin-infused, percussive house sound to labels such as Happy Techno Music and NØID since debuting under the alias in late 2021. Bringing a slice of their Spanish heritage across the Atlantic to the foggy metropolis of Seattle, their next release drops via Longstocking’s Feral One Records as they unveil their three-track EP ‘Devil’ – showcasing a selection of stripped-back house cuts.

“Every new phenomenon within popular music comes with accusations of being ‘devil music’. It happened with jazz, rock, and rap, and now electronic music is taking the hellish title via its association with pure debauchery. The thing is, Space Castorz have been dancing with the devil for over ten years.

The ‘Devil’ EP explores minimal sounds, with a trio of cuts that grab hold of your soul like Lucifer himself is possessing you to dance. Beginning with ‘Bombon’, an affected vocal sample sounds like someone is so enthralled with the acid-tinged rhythms that they’re speaking in tongues. Not that anyone would need evil spirits to get them moving to this major groover.

The title track comes second with an equally effective minimal aesthetic but with an added dose of intrigue through atmospheric elements. The lyrics are clear this time, proudly proclaiming, “shit is the devil,” but with a seductive tone that elucidates this shit is really good.

To close, the devil reveals himself on ‘Don’t Like’. Everything about this track is dark. From the galloping bassline pulled straight from a death metal band’s toolbox, to the haunting choral blast samples placed at the exact right moments, to the ominous breakdown that lets you know the prince of darkness is about to crash this party.” – Feral One Records.

Space Castorz ‘Devil’ EP drops via Feral One Records on 23rd June 2023.

We premiere ‘Devil’ on Data Transmission, check it out here and grab it on Beatport.
