Leanca – Kontent 003 [Kontent]
Romanian record label Kontent returns with its third vinyl-only instalment, this time with mysterious local DJ and producer Leanca at the controls. Drawing us further into his eccentric and infinitely unique musical universe, the artist brings forward three fresh cuts, design with truly hypnotic minimal aspects. Founded by Vlad Arapasu last year, the imprint debuted with an album from the label-head himself, while the second material was signed by Macarie.
Following on from his highly appraised releases on Alter Hour (alongside Sonohat) and Hashplant, Leanca enjoys support from established names in the scene like Petre Inspirescu and Mihigh while he shared the decks with artists such as Cosmjn, Nils Weimann, Mariin and Carlos Ryan. Slowly building a name or himself, he’ll surely deliver more and more timeless productions as time goes by, so stay tuned to his online channels to be the first to find out more. Now, let’s explore his latest musical adventure in more detail:
Kontent 003 opens with the thunderous low-end vibration of “Zboina Zare”, an immersive composition that reveals a steady-paced drumming pattern that leads exotic oriental instruments and various microlayers into head-spinning arrangements and breakdowns. The subtle dark flavour adds an eerie overall dimension while the following piece titled “Rockability” switches the vibe towards a more funky path. Here, the sub-bass wobbles and heavily modulated additional percussion blend into a swinging combination, irresistible and very engaging. Side B features “Umbra Marelui Falnic”, a more abstract rhythm where vocal samples along with various bleeps, glitches and windpipes create an organic, tunnelling sound, perfect for dimly lighted dancefloors and solid minimal selections.
