Various – UToWax Part. 2 [Unutrei]
Romanian imprint Unutrei returns with its second pressing, yet another Various Artists compilation titled UToWax Part. 2. The 12” features four fresh tracks dropped by local artists Vern, Andu Simion, Heerd and Fictiv, with early support coming from Sepp and others. Founded in 2014 in Constanta, Unutrei (read as 13, representing the city’s postcode) functions as a digital and vinyl label, a podcast platform, an event organiser and promotion brand. With two signature party series named Alternatif and Pitch+Fader, the team brought forward quality times with the likes of Primarie, Mihai Pol, Teluric, Cosmjn, Herodot, Prichindel, Cally, Nu Zau and Priku performing alongside resident DJs and producers.
Designed with deep, melodic and acidic themes, the VA invites to a dazzling journey into the realm of minimalistic house music with all the tracks carefully picked for this task. The protagonists, established and rising talents alike, sure deliver the vibes so fasten your seatbelt as we ride this sonic carousel.
Vern opens the wax with “Cosmic Glitch”, a colourful composition built with bright textures and vivid harmonics that flow with ease along with the uplifting percussive elements and the funky bassline. The cut reveals spacious breaks that create tension while displaying alluring modulations and effects. Following, there’s “A Different World” provided by Andu Simion, a third of the notorious group Lisière Collectif. The cut also stands out with a prominent bassline to which deep reverberating chords and warm strings are added in order to create a rich background.
On the flipside, we first find “Windsurfers” dispatched by Heerd, an immersive groove that exhibits different variations and patterns. The duo manages to create an engaging piece, that can easily make one visualise how it feels like when riding the waves, on a hot summer day. Closing the VA, “The Rest Of Us” by Fictiv unleashes an uncanny sound that incorporates elegant acidic breaks and ambient motifs, making this 12” a must-have gem for selectors and collectors alike.
