feeder sound exclusive premiere: Alex Font – El Son De Emiliano [Acmé]
Alex Font returns to his label Acmé with the first solo EP since 2016, bringing forward four fresh tracks designed with outstanding groovy minimalistic arrangements from which two of them are composed in collaboration with Edgar Yanez and Música Viva. “Los indisciplinados de la Salsa EP” will arrive at the end of this month in a limited number of 300 copies so make sure you grab yours in time!
Acmé has been releasing amazing electronic music since its inception back in 2015, having a catalogue that includes names like Sepp, Faster, Nu Zau, Lizz and VincentIulian alongside the imprint’s head himself, Alex Font. With an extended history of exploring both classical and modern rhythms since he was very young, Alex stands out with his distinct style which includes bringing intensive studying of musical composition, harmony and sound engineering to the table. His productions are being played by top names in the scene while his DJ sets always deliver something new, somewhere at the border between dynamic compositions and more introspective works.
“This is a tribute track to the visionary Puerto Padre’s Cuba pianist Emiliano Salvador.” – Alex Font
The cut kicks in with a funky bright vibration delivered by its engaging percussion, solid bassline and groovy synth arrangements, announcing an instant classic. The progression steadily reveals the other elements which include deep and melodic background pads as well as playful piano notes and alluring vocal modulations. A perfect tool for any dancefloor right here!
On Side A we can also find “Paula” featuring Edgar Yanez, a stripped-down driving piece focusing on its dynamic rhythm and hypnotic vocal cuts that roll in a perfect balance with all the layers. On the B-Side “Y Su Apollo Sound” spins first with ethereal uplifting reverberations, numerous build-ups and strong drumming patterns that at some point induce summer-like melancholia, while the closing track “Tremendo Gozador” featuring Música Viva explores a cosmic blend of colourful sounds and laid-back energies, making the piece perfect for the after-hours. Yet another collectable right here!
