Desolat reveal new Andrea Oliva EP
Andrea Oliva makes his Desolat debut with 4-track EP ‘Get Down’.
The EP kicks off with ‘Crazy A’, a grooving track featuring subtle acid stabs. It’s joined by our favourite at Data Transmission the bumping ‘Elephant’; vocal-free, the jacking rhythm builds up to a cascade of dark, siren-like synths.
Title track ‘Get Down’ is the third of the EP, and features an unforgivingly thudding bassline underpinning the dark, echoing vocal sample. ‘That Shhh’ picks up the tempo to round off the package, with skipping hi hats and a sub-bass melody underpinning a subtle build up of horns and samples.
The ’Get Down’ EP marks the versatility of Andrea Oliva as a producer; his skill for tougher-edged tech is displayed to full effect on this latest release for Loco Dice’s iconic label, whilst his smoother house productions have previously found a home at Saved, Moon Harbour, DFTD, Be As One and Objektivity amongst others.
