Los Bastoneros – Perspectives EP [EverydayParadise]
Bucharest-based artist community and record label EverydayParadise returns with its second vinyl pressing in the form of “Perspectives EP” dropped by local trio Los Bastoneros. Driven by the love for electronic music, Emanuel Cristea, Emmanuel Deaconu and András Schmidt deliver their signature sound on this release containing three of their dancefloor breakers with groovy baselines, uplifting vocals and minimalistic features. A deeper touch is added by Mihai Pol who works his magic on the B-Side while the artwork is provided by Cutărică.
Organising amazing events all over Romania, EverydayParadise crew delivers top-notch musical adventures coming from a lot of talented local artists and collaborative projects, always promoting the good vibes in the Romanian scene. Their work as an imprint includes dispatching works from Nopame and Soundopamine, with Los Bastoneros adding flavour with their debut 12” EP, after officially releasing their first production on Fake Society’s latest VA.
We dive in Side-A on “La Guitarra”, an uptempo carousel of swinging techy house rhythms powered by a strong funky bassline and percussive elements. The heavily modulated vocals add an eerie dimension to the whole while the bright pads enhance the background textures. Next, there’s “Floralis”, an evenly groovy cut designed with aquatic motifs and summer vibes. A pumping yet elegant cut for any dancefloor!
On Side B there’s “La Riviere Pourpre”, a progressive minimalistic composition that goes beyond genres and flows with an ever-evolving arrangement of effects and synth patterns. Closing the wax, Mihai goes all funky minimal on the remix, adding deep organic textures and a solid bassline. The EP sure has a breezy feeling embedded into it and makes a great collectable for those who enjoy exotic Romanian sounds.
