Lulla – Universe B [Alter Hour]
The British record label Alter Hour returns with its third pressing signed by Marco Santamaria aka Lulla and titled “Universe B”. The wax features four fresh tracks that explore deep minimal rhythms and textures, dropping that specific and distinct sound that the artist developed throughout time. Early support comes from the likes of Raresh, Vlad Arapasu, Nu Zau and Triptil.
Alter Hour has already hosted a large number of successful events focused on underground electronic music so in March 2019 the team behind the concept decided to take the next step and established an imprint. The first release was a Various Artists compilation which included tracks by Macarie, Robert Apetrei, Ted Amber and Lulla, while the second wax saw Sonohat and Leanca joining forces on “Paprika Express”. For this material, the man behind Cedesciu Wax makes a solo appearance, one that is equally delightful and expressive.
Side A opens with “Sunder”, a laid-back piece that flows with ease revealing a cosmic journey into the unknown. The bubbling bassline and the percussion are perfectly balanced by spacious breakdowns while the background pads are more melancholic in nature. Following, “Verdungo” provides a different kind of minimal, one that is focused on its playful drumming patterns and heavy modulated effects. A great tool for DJs right here!
On the flipside we first find the title track “Universe B”, an alluring composition that spins with a hypnotic vibration brought forward by the carefully crafted intertwining of all the layers. The vocal cuts add energy while the overall arrangements remain minimalistic. Closing the wax, “Void Zone” exhibits a darker sound, perfect for dimly lighted dancefloors. Here, the resonance is amplified by the subtle reverberations of some of the elements that steadily morph into a continuous stream of sounds that can easily make anyone drift into spiraling sensations.
