Premiere: Francisco Allendes – Tirana


Late July will see Francisco Allendes release his ‘Tirana’ EP via Kaluki Musik, accompanied by a remix from Leftroom’s Matt Tolfrey.

Chilean Ibiza-based producer and DJ Francisco Allendes has been steadily carving out a name for himself over the past decade via releases on Loco Dice’s Desolat, Luciano’s Cadenza, Steve Lawler’s ViVa MUSiC and Kaluki Musik where he makes a welcome return to here following his ‘House Train’ record which featured on the labels ‘Smoke Signals Vol.1’ alongside Patrick Topping, Richy Ahmed and label-heads Pirate Copy.

Taking the lead on the package is ‘Tirana’ with its crunchy distorted rhythms, tumbling snare rolls sweeping vocal murmurs and head resonant synth swells. Matt Tolfrey steps up to rework ‘Tirana’ next, delivering a more reduced interpretation focused on low-slung, intricately programmed percussion, a snaking sub-led bass line and swirling cuts of the original’s vocal shots.

Francisco Allendes’ ‘Tirana’ EP is out on Kaluki Musik 28th July 2017.

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.
